I will work on pics of the hillstreams.  There are only 4 in there right now and they are still skittish.  As soon as they see me, they feel the need to hide.

All the tanks are finally set up.  Here are the pics of the room as it is now.  I need to change the shop lights so that they are running the opposite direction and add two more sets of lights.

As you walk into the room:


Left side:


Right side:


25 gallon with Labeotropheus Trewavasae (Zimbawe Rock) growout:


25 gallon Xiphophorus Alverezi (wild type swordtail):


29 gallon river tank with Sewellia Lineoleta (Reticulated Hillstream Loach).  This tank has a powerhead on one end and a sponge on the other connected to each other by 3/4" pvc under the substrate.  This helps create a unidirectional flow in the tank.  The powerhead turns the water about 15 times per hour.  There is also a bubble wand under the substrate to add additional oxygen to the water.  These fish live in fast flowing waters in the wild.


30 breeder with Astotilapia Latifasciata:


40 breeder with Labidochromis Caeruleus and Cynotilapia Afra (Lumbila)


100 gallon with several different species from Lake Malawai:


The 20 gallon tall has Angels.  The four tens are growout tanks containing L114 plecos, Ptychochromis sp. Red Fin, Geophagus Proximus, and Tramitichromis Intermedius.

There are still several external filters hooked up which is just helping prevent a cycle.  These will be coming down soon.  Also need to finish getting glass for the tops.

Finally some real progress.  Stand is complete.  It is a combination of black paint and cedar colored stain.  Painted the back of 7 tanks today--100g, 40 br, 30 br, 2-25's, 29, and a 10.  Still need to paint 3 more 10's and a 20 tall but need to evict the current residents first.

The air system running between the tanks.  Each line will have a check valve.


100 gallon, 40 br, 30 br


Where the last 4 tanks will go

The stand is complete. I have two used tanks that need old paint scraped off. The 100 gallon is up on the stand being scraped now. I have a 30 breeder yet to do. I have been working on the 100 for 2 hours and am now about 25% done. I am using a window scraper that holds razor blades to do it. I am 100% convinced that the paint that was used on this tank needs to be sold to every homeowner in Florida. It will completely fortify a house in the unfortunate event of a hurricane.

It's a good thing that I am about 9 beers and a bottle of wine (2nd one started) into it. Otherwise, I would be going Kimbo Slice on someone right now.

P.S. Thank you very much to my wife for proof reading this before I hit submit.
