The difference with this tank since adding the rainbows and losing the sd's has been huge. Before adding the rainbows dusty never ever left the substrate level and kind of bullied chewy. But now dusty almost looks happy swimming at all levels of the tank even surface fed today. He actually looks a little awkward swimming in the water column. Chewy has way more confidence and even instigates some with dusty. But overall they pretty much get along now swimming together too. Dory is the same cool customer shes always been.

Looking good man. I have obviously been out of the loop for a bit. When did you get rid of the SDs? Do you still have any fish in your 55?

Frank, the tank looks really good but a bit empty still... like you need a couple more rainbows and a bocourti. ;) I know he is coming, any word on the delay?

I really had a chuckle when your son and dog started adding 'sound effects' playing in the background. :laugh:

@ jen I swear she is a model citizen since removing the sd's lol

@ david. yeah the kids and that dog fight like siblings lol. I have a few more rainbows in qt just finished up a treatment of parasite guard. as for the boc well I found an lfs that was willing to order them from cichlids of the Americas which was pretty cool saved me on shipping and the minimum order they were supposed to be delivered (airport) today but the manager at lfs said there was some confusion on the date and he never got a confirmation.

@ben

That's an awesome fish.......now on my bucket list......I would get @ least a 90GL for that bad boy....I am surprised that he doesn't smack those TB's....I know Darth Nihilus (Beani) would have killed them by now......love that fish, but he's not aggressive, he's psychotic.....he just goes out of his way to eliminate all other life in the aquarium. :evil:

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Lol yeah hes pretty cool with them but not so nice to other argentea or the hets. He beat the crap out of the last argentea and het that got rehomed.

Only thing is he doesnt sport that argentea mask anymore. You think it yas to do with him being small ?

The "mask" has more to do w/ displaying than age....look @ vids of them w/ other cichlids, vs no cichlids....mask is more prevalent when in the company of con/hetero specifics & is intense when breeding.
