It used to be my gaming room. I have 4 tanks in here now that I moved Aki up here next to Varuna. She's happier up here where she can't see the sorority tank where she's not allowed.

What is it with these guys?! Like 1 in every 10 has some weird habit of jamming themselves face-first into rocks or wiggling between filters & plants. Then they go to sleep. So weird! Lol

I like to use API Stress Coat too, 1ml per cup would help grow out & heal their fins with aloe, plus it has the chlorine eliminator built in.
