    By the way, you have some green slime to clean off:rolleyes: That reminds me, been a while since I cleaned my tank.

    You motivated me to take a couple of my fish. "Dave" - the big orange one is about 8 inches nose to tail and about 4 inches wide. The Bristlenose is about 4 inches. I have way too many of those.
    SEL30M35 with ring light.

    Thanks. I have a pair of the cichlids; since 2007. Bought a bristle nose about 4 years ago. Last year I thought it would like company. Now there are easily 40 of them ranging from very small to about 5 inches (55 gallon tank). I think they reached critical mass a few months ago and eat most of the eggs. There are a few albinos in the bunch that are really neat.

    I will switch to small fish someday. It's nice to give them a big world - tougher to do with big fish.

    That's what is funny, I want to go bigger.
