:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: Firestorm you have NO IDEA!! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: It is a Job & a half! and takes some time! But Well worth the time. It's a Family Event. I do the Gravel Vacuum, one of the Kids hold the other end of the Vacuum while it's going in to the 5 Gal Buckets, I have several lined up, as soon as the one gets full my GF runs it to the SInk to DUMP it, so on and so fourth. Then when replacing the water it is a Chain of My Children, My GF, & I running the Buckets of new Water to the Tanks. FUN FAMILY TIME. :woohoo:

You really need to invest into one of those Water Python things. I am lucky to have my 55 Gallon close to a window , so I can just run the gravel vac out the window. I cant stand fish water in my sink or tub , so this works out great. Lol. And the second 55 Gallon will also be close to a window. I dont really mind carrying the buckets of fresh water , its kind of like a work out. I tried a to run a water hose from the sink to the tank , but by the time I got untangled and hooked up I was so aggrevated that I decided to not do that again. :lol:

Same here, kinda wondering what tank size's you have, and how many. Can't really tell in the monsoon of pic's. Which are awesome by the way. :)

LOL Monsoons of Pictures!!! I'm CRAZY about taking Pictures! You can never have to many. All my Tanks are 55 Gal. I am in the Process of Buying 4 120 Gallong Tanks. So my Bigger Oscars would be put in to the 120 Gallon. The Babys would be Separated in to 2's and placed in there own Tanks. My African CiChlids will all be Separated eventually and as someone had suggested Placed in a Tank Specifically for Breeding. I am also going to Breed Feeders so I know they are Good. Sorry for all the Pictures, As I said earlier I LOVE taking allot of Pictures and I LOVE looking at a bunch of Pictures. All of them are my Babies, so I'm a PROUD DAD and Love to show them off. I wish I could have better Pictures. Oscar & Aundres Tanks appear to have taken the BEST Pictures. I am happy to say that ALL my Tanks are Crystal Clear Like Oscars is. The other reason I put up so many Pictures is that a little while ago I was suffering through ICK with my Baby Hope! It was a TERRIBLE Experience Heart Breaking and a PAIN to go through. Since then she has Grown and is very Healthy. Thank You to everyone who has commented. I'm glad you have enjoyed the Pictures.

Oh Sorry I forgot to answer about my Plans, although I already posted about what I am in the Process of doing, I am making a Aquarium Room. The room is going to be Dedicated to all my Fish. I am Custom Making all the Stands and the entire room. When I am done it will Look GREAT. The New Filter System will then be under the Tanks. It's ALMOST going to be like a set up that you would see in a Aquarium or Fish Store. I have allot of ideas running through my Head. It is going to take at least a year until I am finished. Once I do I will post Pictures from Begining to end. No Worries by the time I am done none of them will be Crammed. Thanks for the Compliments I appreciate it.

I think right now we are all curious as to which fish are in what size tanks. Because if I read everything correctly from previous posts I am counting at least 6 to 8 Oscar and at least 6 AC's divided into 2 or 3 tanks ? I know you have great plans for a fish room ; but you don't have a year before things will go bad with all those fish crammed into the tanks you have now. It already looks packed , and they are all still babies....

Absolutely understand where your'e coming from and sorry I wasn't Clear. I have a 55 Gal Tank I am buying on Saturday for the Baby Oscars. I was supposed to have it on Wednesday but that never happened. They weren't available. It only seems Crammed because they Swim together in Packs. I Ordered 4 120 Gallon Tanks for my Larger Oscars. Felix & Hope will stay together no matter what because I honestly think they are a Pair! with 4 120 Gallon Tanks That opens up my 55 Gallon Tanks the Larger O's are in now as well. So Sooner rather then later they will be in Tank Paradise! I'm certainly not waiting till I have the Room done to Seperate them. I am keeping all 6 of the Baby O's together to see which ones will Pair up. But for now they all Swing and stay together. Has anyone ever seen a Oscar whos Bottom Fin looks like a Shark? I was VERY Curious about that! It's the first time I've ever seen that before. I LOVE all the Baby O's Designs. It's really Cool looking at the way they all have Different Markings.

Funny thing is with ALL the room they currently have they ALL Stay to the Left side of the Tank for some reason! I'm, not sure why! They have Double Set ups but they all hide in the Same areas and stick together! Cute but Curiously done. As the one Pic shows RARELY they will venture over to the Right side of the Tank. That side is Darker too because the Light is out so i'm wondering if that may be why. I'm not sure why though! But if any of them Break the Pack they will wonder off over there for a bit then come right back over to the Brighter area!!!
