Please, for the sake of everyone involved, don't enter the TOTM contests. That tank is stunning. I'm extremely impressed. I can only aspire to have a tank that looks that good some day.

It's all about research and planning. You think it's really difficult, but it isn't. After looking at all the crazy ADA tanks and whatnot, your mind can run wild and get all kinds of ideas.

Well sounds like its time for a new tank. Fish are over rated anyways.

Ha, yeah it wont be entered in TOTM anymore. Everybody knows its mine anyways lol. Thank you for the compliment. You can definitely have a tank like this just be prepared to do some research. The hardest part is finding the balance of light, CO2, and nutrients.

Oh I almost forgot to add a crucial change I have made recently. I started doing my water changes with RO water. Since RO water has such a low Ph and none of the key minerals I add them with buffers. I use Seachem Discus Buffer 5.8-6.8 and Seachem Equilibrium (restores and maintains mineral balance and GH). Since the last three water changes growth has doubled.

yep. I had the one rotkiel in my 55 gal "cichlid tank", but came across some "red-spotted golds" and some "whites" that look super awesome. I have already gotten them to the point where they will eat out of my hand. I want to eventually be able to fully submerge my hand with one of their cubes, but as for now I can have my first knuckles under while they pluck away.

..So now I have a "severum tank" and a "cichlid tank". Between me and my fiance, we have 5 tanks set up....what's one more, right?

I snapped this pic yesterday. I recently added a new ADA led light fixture to it.
