Default Tank cycled! Finally. Peacock gudgeons?

My 12g eclipse system is finally cycled.

0ppm Ammonia
0ppm nitrite
20ppm nitrate

Thinking of getting peacock gudgeons. Does anyone have any experience with them?

I'm still wondering what a gudgeon is. I'll go research and get back to you. And 12 gal Eclipse? Nice. What did you pay for it?

i love the little gudgeons..a bit odd looking but very interesting...they need lots of hiding places....

Yes they're really cute. I have two LFS who have them stocked usually. I just added in 6 pygmy cories so I'll get the gudgeons soon.

I paid $90 for my eclipse system. I believe Drs. Foster and Smith has it and Amazon.com too.

That isn't a bad price for a 12 gallon.

Seriously Loha? Wow. I'm still wondering just how many tanks you own, let alone keep fish in.

I'd honestly imagine loha is probably around 1000 gallons. How many tanks, not sure. In 3 months or so I'll be upgrading my tank and I'll have 345 gallons total. Getting a 220 and have a 125 now.

in my basement there are approximately 70 aquariums up and running ; give or take a dozen or so...sizes range from 2.5 gallons to 135 gallons...
out in the yard are about 40 or so more tanks plus 5 stock tanks at 110 gallons each..more to come next spring...and there are probably 15 or so more in my storage locker with the biggest being a 125 gallon set up..
hopefully when petco has it's $1 per gallon sale i can pick up a few 40 breeders and 30 longs....also thinking of building some plywood tanks as well....

there is no such thing as too many fish or too many tanks or too big of a tank....

I've never heard anyone say: Give or take a dozen or so (tanks). And I'll have to look into that PetCo sale. Is it a national sale or local sale? (Sorry, hijacking a lil)

the water bill is pretty high...but you should see the electric bill...$350+......

the $1 per gallon sale is national...never had any idea when they had them ; but i guess i will now..

almost everything with me is give or take a dozen or so...guns , knives , pots and pans , kitchen gadgets , fishing reels....used to have about 100 of them...lol
