    Had two heaters at one point, but it was getting to warm staying above 82, even with readjusting the heaters. With one it’s staying steady at 76-78.

    Update on the new Tetras! The Neons are doing great, and have a good appetite. The angels still leave them alone. I normally have issues with neons, but these people ones seem to be doing well. Still looking for the Panda corydoras.

    I couldn’t find any panda corydoras, so I got Juili corys instead. They are happy little guys. I got the 6 the store had left.

    you're not really overstocked however you're dangerously low on water level. I would ougrade my filtration to different types of systems that sustain large amounts of bio filtration such as a powerhead in a round sponge, a canister with plenty of bioballs, and a back powerfilter with a bio sponge....just my humble opinion. Good luck

    I have to top it off, when I get a chance to. My room gets warm and water evaporates. I’m thinking of getting a canster filter, but that’ll be awhile.

    Where the tank is located , I can only go with a HOB, I won’t be able to do a canister. The tank is sitting on a solid wood dresser, one side has a bookcase and the other has a fan and a door. :(

    Haven’t updated this in awhile. The tank currently is sitting dry, I’m planning on setting it back up. I have the decor in place, just need to add water. Replaced the Cascade 300 Filter with a Marineland Emperor 450. I have three goldfish for the tank currently growing out in my 37. A lionhead, Ryukin and a comet. I do know the comet may out grow the tank, if he does outgrow the tank, I do have a place to put him.

    What's the story on all the "sitting dry" and changing stock, if you don't mind my asking? Once I get a tank going, I typically let it roll indefinitely.

    There's nothing wrong with letting an aquarium sit for extended periods of time empty. Sometimes it's possible to get in over one's head and need to cut back.


    I know personally how many aquariums are running, and how many are empty here. I don't think I need to explain to anybody
