hi everyone, glad to be back. quick update, moved a few months back. no longer have the Tiger Oscar, gave him to a friend that has a pond, was out growing that 55 gallon, happy to report hes doing fine.(plan on getting a bearded dragon for that now empty tank).
I did however haul my African tank to the new place. found pics from 17 months ago when I had only 12 fish to start with and then...they started breeding and havent stopped. Ive only lost 3 of my original fish including the biggest one and my fav, the bumblebee.lost her and one female yellow lab to getting stuck between rocks. :( :( :( found them still alive but pretty scratched up and Im sure lack of oxygen for who knows how long played a factor. 3rd loss was an albino zebra I found bullied to death, first instance of that even with all the babies. i redid the tank after the move and created a bigger nursery area on the right of the tank you will see all the cichlids in diff. sizes and the new batch of yello lab fry are everywhere. my jaguar synodontis cat fish peeks out from the green cave then is seen better in video at the end.

pics from 1 yr 5 months ago:

Lol..the spiderman was a 'tank warming' gift from my buddy that helped me move the tank. I do happen to be a fan of marvel comics, proud owner of a nice comic book collection I amassed when i was younger and hope. To one day sell. and the plan was to create a battle scene avengers style and PetCo stopped selling the characters. :pinch:

Anyway its in there to not be rude regarding the gift and I kinda like it
