The big red is Ron and the Lutino is Vicky. I made the horrible mistake of putting them in a 10 gallon as babies but this forum gave me tons of help on what conditions they need and deserve. One will be re Homed eventually or I will end up breaking down and just getting another large tank so they each have one. They are still small by Oscar standards. Ron is around 5 inch Vicky like 4. Cycled the new tank with some used media and 7 Danios until I was getting 0 ammonia and nitrate and a slight nitrate reading. Ron beat himself up a little in the transfer but it's just a few scrapes. Vicki took it like a champ tho. They only sulked about an hour and have been darting around and eating since then. Just wanted to say thanks from me and them to all of you that helped point me in the right direction

New set up looks really nice, good job on getting it going. I would love to see a pic of the whole tank. If they are not fighting you can take a deep breath and think on it, but they can't both stay healthy in a 55 for long.

Yeah I know they can't be healthy together for much longer. I have an awesome local pet shop that will take one for me. It's like an spca for fish. You guys got me in the habit of daily water changes and testing and I have a flu Val 306 going that's 2 3rds bio max so they should be OK for a little. As soon as the conditions start to dip I will do right by them and get one to a better home. I'll get a pic of the tank up in a sec

Glad you are making the changes. What tank are they in now? It is easy to keep adding tanks! I had one a year ago and now I have added three large tanks!

And here's the Danios in the small tank. All 7 survived the cycling. Tough as nails these little dudes. 4 leopard long fins and 3 pearls. They never once got stressed. They didn't even skip a beat moving to the new tank.

The new tank is a 55. Originally wanted a 75 but after finding out I would need a beastly canister filter and how much a reliable stand costs I had to go 55. I've only had them since thanksgiving and they have about tripled in size. Pretty sure I was overfeeding the hell out of them at first so that probably didn't help.

Pretty good one of Ron here. Vicky is too active to ever let me get a focused close up
