Sold My Frontosa Colony And Dirted The Tank

Well my Frontosa Colony was outgrowing my 40 Gallon tank so I sold them to a nice guy with a bigger tank. He even kept his word and sent me a picture of their new home (see below).

I mineralized some awesome soil, added red Clay, and then mixed in some special ingredients.

I put in a few starter plants and Guppies that were born in my other tank. Oh...and then I got a Cory Catfish clean up crew of four.

Planted Tank

After creating my own blend of mineralized soil with red Clay added, the live plants are growing extremely well.  I also put the tank in the window for direct sunlight.

Frontosa Colony

I have started to raise a small school of Frontosa Cichlids. The largest I purchased  three months ago and the other five about a month ago. It takes almost two years for them to reach breeding age. I will try to post updates often.

My German Rams

Dirted my 30 gallon and added live plants. My German Rams appear to enjoy their new home.  The Driftwood is also my latest DIY project.
