No yellow substrate :laugh: its white sand but because of the dark water due to the use in the sump of black peat it looks that way ;)

Yes they are getting bigger by the day... and "Big" (that's the name of the larger one) as almost twice the size of the others, this will be for sure a large fish :)

No comments on the video? :(

Well... this time I'll be posting some pictures :P

UPDATE 18MAI13

Now housing only 4 Heros Iniridae; 6 Biotodoma Cupid; 12 Tetra Colombianus, sold Thoracata and Bristlenose this last ones where amasing in leaving in the bottom of the tank a black cloud of poo :sick: they are really a nice algae eater but all thar crap they do in white sand its not possible to keep with the daily cleaning needed ... and in a few days a pair of Geophagus Iporangensis and 2 Uatuma wild Discus will arrive, and hoping to get more 3 wild discus soon... :silly:

Ohhhhhhhhh! I changed the layout too... the large wood was cuted and now it is up on the left like a large branch os a tree coming in to the river... next week i'll add some more echinodorus (amazon swords) but i'll get some more lights soon due to the current plantas are not doing that well...
