Nice work Killer Very Happy you really are into big tanks!

I love the 100 galls! you say you keep Corys in that 100 galls - tell me how are their barbles? I ask because of the gravel size. Also do you run any CO2 or exel in there? Thanks!

I see you plunged into salty water too Very Happy so what do you think of it so far?

Regards, Dusko

Their barbels are long and healthy, I had some mixed feelings with the flourite when adding them but they have been in the tank for well over 4months and if anything they and their barbs have grown. I used to dose Excel on the 100G...but I havent bothered doing so for awhile. I only dose Flourish ferts on the tank(Trace, N,P,K, Fe, and Flourish) once per week. The amount of plants crammed in there tends to outcompete any algae, I just get a bit of green that forms on the front glass every week.

I was on a hiatus from SW as well, I kept it years ago and have recently gotten back into it...its addictive. Its amazing how nuts one will go over a small frag of coral Laughing This tank is far from complete but I am enjoying myself so far. I take it youve also taken the plunge?

Plants by amount can not outcompete the algae Smile what does outcompete the algae is nutrients (enough of NPK, traces) but most important the right level between the lights and CO2.
That green on the glass will disapaer if you start dosing excel every day.

I see saltwater aquarists as "aquarist on stereoids" Laughing we all go crazy for COLORS Laughing I felt like falling back for a while and see will I go back to salt water or not. I did my share and I work with it full time in my Fish Shop.
In comparison one can find more peace and quiet in fresh water aquaristics, everything is more subtle, IMO Smile

Love the new look of the tanks! Looks like you've definitely got the hang of the plant thing (I'm still struggling, LOL).

Sorry to hear about your fish. Crying or Very sad

How are the 3-spots doing with just the two? The on in the pic appears female, and the one in your avatar looks to be male... does he harass her? I know my male was ruthless with the females so I definitely had to have two. Smile

What have you got for plants on the first tank? I'm trying to work out a similar setup in a 30 gallon. (different fish of course) Smile

F0 means wild, F1 means offspring of wild, it goes on from there, but after what is it? F6? you just say domesticated.
