Just got done with the 140 gallon... still need to add a bit more rock and then more water if needed.. and clean the filter.  It's been a long freaking day... still have the 180 to do, but the water isn't as clear to see where to put my rocks.   Enjoy this one though.. my catfish are loving it.. 3 back there going up and down with the new Yo Yo Loach... also my buddy brought over a big ass Bala Shark that you'll see in the vid.. biggest fish in there pretty much... he should do fine.



I'm buzzing hard right now and while taking this vid!  ha ha!

Awesome stuff, miD.  You have some great set-ups.  I bought a 65 gallon tank which I plan to set up soon.  Freshwater only, though. 

I'm not ambitious enough to go the saltwater route.  Although, they typically make for more beautiful tanks.
Whatever happened with this @Omni78 ???

Sold it a couple years ago.  Damn, time flies.

Very nice assortment.  You will not find exotic Africans like that at the national chain pet stores.  I have been looking around your website, very cool.  It appears to be mostly for video games but a lot of other cool topics also, like fish!  I will put up pictures when I get my 55 gallon glass aquarium started.

Those things are cool.  They do not mess with the cichlids or vice versa?  I'm always nervous on mixing different species together in the same aquarium.

They sell pictus at petsmart and such.  They will only go after cichlids if they're super small.. like fry and like that size.   They're actually really cool to have and eat all the crap that gets left over.   Always active.

DON'T NET THEM THOUGH!   Their side fins have barbs and get stuck in the net.  I have had this happen to me twice with them while netting them.   If you ever transfer them into a bigger tank, try to corner them with a cup and net.. make them go in the cup.  Or else prepare to cut the net a tiny to set them free.  http://www.planetcatfish.com/common/species.php?species_id=276

A little flake food feeding.  Check out @VOLTAN there if you can see him go past.   His tail is about 40% back!   Doing much better in this tank.   Survivor!

A wonderful display of a feeding frenzy by a group of healthy African cichlids.  Those fishes look great!  I see you have some young specimens in there.  Are they offspring of cichlids already in the tank?

That is awesome!  Here is my 40, no 55 yet.
