@Tex Gal-- Eh, the HOB kinda ruins it. I'll post a still after I get the other filter on it.

Now that is what I call hardcore dedication.

Good job with finding the rocks and nice story too. You haven't even set it up yet, but the look of those rocks are simply stunning...to us hobbyists anyways.

Imagine a non-hobbyist mistaking it for a pile of old rocks. The horror. lol

Hi Steven,

Looks very good! I tried to find "Black Medaka" listed and all I can find is the standard Japanese Rice Fish.....is there a black variation?

Anyway, a long overdue front photo



I kinda lost the medaka-- maybe temperature issues? I wasn't really liking their swimming pattern either. I'm thinking of some tetra or something to be the main schooling fish.

Amazing rocks. Nice tank. Great adventure in finding your own rocks. The rocks will cost you a fortune at the LFS...if you can find some.
