could stand to have a background of some sort
Bondy {Frontosa fan} » posted 2007/08/07 09:13 am  
dont like backgrounds really

Is it true that fronts are only bottom feeders. Ive heard that if u feed them up top they will catch a disease called the bloat or something dealing with their stomach????

How well does that FLUVAL X-5 work. b/C I was interested in purchasing one??
Bondy {Frontosa fan} » posted 2007/08/07 03:49 pm  
true its called float u cant surface feed them
the fx-5 is awsome great filter i have had top of the range ehiems in the past and the fx-5 is so much better

I had a beautiful Blue Front and Now I know how and what happened to him. I always surface fed him and never heard of float. Then one day he wasn't looking good and started acting funny. I thought he was lonely and then he died.

Rocks need to be arranged so fronts can hide in them. Too much at one end and what about some other interest like plants.
Chris Miller » posted 2007/09/03 05:48 pm
I love this setup. Simple and emphasis on the fish.

I agree, the fronts are stuck swimming in the open space. I don't understand the setup you have and its usefullness to the fish. I also hope you don't plan on breeding anything in there other than fronts because the rest are lunch.

Nyanja a Umodzi which means Tank of Unity

by Jeffrey St. Clair from Santa Monica, CA / USA


Description

  • Category: African
  • Tank size: 48x13x18 inches = 48 gallons
  • Tank size: 121x33x45 cm = 181 liters

    Just FYI - The top right is air bubbles from the powerjet.

    I have the circulation from the outtake of the filter in a spray bar on the right, then the water gets pushed to the left via the powerjet and back into the intake of the filter on the left.

    No aggression issues whatsoever. Everyone was put in the tank at the same time as juvies, so perhaps that helped. They all just swim around casually and relaxed.

Decoration

  • Gravel: Carib-Sea Aragonite Bio-Sand
  • Plants:

    Holey Rock (Limestone)

Technics

  • Light: 40 Watt 48 inch Hagen Power-Glo
  • Light-Duration: 13 hours
  • Filtration: Rena XP3 with 18 watt UV Sterilizer

    Air Pump: Tetra Whisper 60 injected into a power jet for more air

    Heater: Theo Heater 200 Watt

    Water Parameters:

    Temp: 81 F°
    pH: 8.4
    GH: 111ppm
    KH: 126ppm
    NO3: 5 ppm

Did you hook the UV up on the outlet side of the XP3,or got it on seperate pump.
Jeffrey St. Clair » posted 2007/11/08 04:12 pm  
Thanks for the rating! :) I have it hooked up to the outlet of the XP3, it's a Turbo Twist 6X under the cabinet.
Mark & Kathy Lindamood » posted 2007/11/08 04:16 pm
I was thinking about one for my tank,to help control algae.
Jeffrey St. Clair » posted 2007/11/08 04:17 pm  
Yea, it shocked my how much it worked on algae, and I love that it controls spreading of diseases too. :)

chuck's current 75 gal central american set-up

Description

  • Category: American
  • Tank size: 0x0x0 inches = 0 gallons
  • Tank size: 0x0x0 cm = 0 liters

    75 gallons U.S..a quite peacefull community tanks that was first a rainbow cichlid breeding group tank...to these, a female, h.nicaraguense and another girl, a C. salvini came to add some color as well as character!non without forgetting a xiphos group , occuping the upper region..and finally, the last but not the least,a A.robertsoni, possibly male came to close the circle

Decoration

  • Gravel: none, white sand
  • Plants: artificial, in silk, hanging from the back wall of the tank( due to digging/swifting habits of fish,its hard to maintain plants, live or arti. anchored to the bottom, i solved the problem)also, juvenile fish prefers the calm zones created by plants near the surface than the open, swift moving water zones occupied by bigger fish

    rocks of various size, placed to create crevices and caves, mopani and drift wood

Technics

  • Light: 2X40 watts aquaglow fluos
  • Light-Duration: 14h /day
  • Filtration: eheim, unknown model... actuallty the tank as a built in overflow system that could allow me to boost filtration but i dont use it, the canister is enuff( i dont want to loose smaller fish into the overflow way)
