Here are a few pictures I took a couple days ago.



These are all of my Labidochromis caeruleus, I got a 30gallon aquarium for them currently (most are still young and small, a larger aquarium is in my forcast).



This is one of my Tiger Loaches (his name is Shere Kahn), they are also in my 30gallon tank.



This is my heavily planted (at least to me it is heavily planted) 29gallon tank. It houses a trio of Apistogramma cacatuoides (1 male 2 females), I've had these guys a little over a month now, and they have gone through 3 batches of eggs (all unsuccesful so far), but they are currently working on their fourth.



Here is a shot of one of the female cacatuoides (sorry its pretty blurry) guarding a shell. I believe that she has laid again because she chases my bristlenose pleco, and the other female cacatuoides away whenever they come close.

More pictures will come...

Cool fish, your 29 looks very nice! It is nicely planted, but maybe some buched plants in the back will give it more depth and contrast! But for now, it's nicely planted...keep it up Smile

Arrow What is that bushy plant towards the back, in the middle?

I would suggest a background for your tank. I like black but really its hard to go wrong.

Very nice. I like the rocks and plants. I would put a dark backgound up. It will be easier to focus on the rocks and plants and should bring out the yellow in your fish.

Nice fish!

I think I know you from another board.


The big lab...that'd be Cornelius?

Looks good, but I think a background would make it look great! Very Happy

Actually there is a mirror background already on the tank. I bought the tank as is for 25 bucks, and the 29gallon came with a hood, filter, thermometer, and a background (which was already attached to the tank). I agree that a black background would look much better (I made one for my 30gallon out of black construction paper), but I do not feel like going to the trouble of scraping the existing mirror background off. It is hard to get good pictures in that tank because of the mirror reflecting the light back to the camera, but the background will be staying.

Noname - Yep, I know you from Fishinthe.net (formerly theaquarians.net), but I don't see you much over there anymore... Cornelius has grown a lot since I first got him.

Raul - Are you referring to the bushy plant next to the filter uptake tube? That one is Hornwort, as for the rest, I am not completely sure.

Nice tank you have there. BTW I had a tiger loach with the same name as yours! He was an aggressive little thing that's for sure, had to separate him from my much larger yo-yo's because he wouldn't stop biting them. That's a great photo of the tiger loach!

in the pic of the electric yellows it looks as though you have only 1 female? (the one with no black stripe??) and a lot of males. Are you concerned that they will stress her to much? Perhaps it isn't a clear view of the pic
