    Haha thank you :)

    I'm hoping to get more Apisto species to fill it.

    Hi @Chandz , thinking of adding apistos to the 1,5m and wondering what you think of the idea and if you have any to sell at the moment?

    I don’t have strong species preferences but you mentioned earlier in this thread that Cacatuoides, Borellii and Agassizii are the easiest to keep so that sounds like a good starting point?

    Current inhabitants are corys, white clouds, danios, khulis, an SAE, shrimp and snails.

    Hi @A new day, I just saw your setup now and I think it's a great idea! You've done an amazing job, it look stunning :)

    Any species I have should be fine as I convert all my juveniles to plain CT water and they do great (even breed).

    In a tank that size, those tank mates won't be a problem. They might eat your baby shrimp though.

    I currently have a few Hongsloi form iii pairs, Macmasteri males and will soon have Agassizii double red pairs available.

    Wonderful thanks @Chandz , that sounds fantastic. I’m very keen to buy from you. Lemme do a little bit more species research and confirm with you but currently thinking perhaps start with a Hongsloi pair, then an Agassizii pair once they’re ready?

    What temp range do you suggest? I know what the internet says but would appreciate your opinion? Tank currently runs at 23-24C but sometimes drops to 21-22C.

    Yes, those two would be good.

    23-24 is fine, but I would try keep it stable at that temperature range, not lower.

    Yep! He’s still settling in but I’ve sent @Chandz a couple of vids and she things he’s settling in well considering that they can sometimes be a bit shy initially

    Yes, he's settling very quickly and already looks happy in his (stunning) new home :)
