Love the new scape, looks natural with rocks just littered around. Those J.marleri are one of my favourite Julies, I'll be watching this journal with interest. I hear that once a Juli makes a bond, its for life until things get moved around?

cichlid_junkie and I attended an auction up in Atlanta and I was able to pick up a few (3) more Julidochromis marlieri for this tank. I found one of them dead on the substrate the other day, so I wanted to introduce some replacements. I still have at least one, probably two of the little fry in there as well, so this makes seven of so Julies. I'm fully stocked...I think :whistle:

Out of all the Tang Fish, I find Julies and Cyps the most interesting. Do you have any videos of the tank JB that are recent?

No, and I probably should take some new video...this tank is really alive now, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

Amazing!

The Eretmodus cyanosticus are definitely my favorites. I love their faces!

I'm sad to report both of my Eretmodus cyanostictus have now perished. I'm not sure if they were not getting enough food, or just didn't fare well with the other inhabitants. I never saw any of their tankmates so much as even nip at them, so I'll have to assume they were not getting enough to eat. The others are very assertive at meal time, whereas the E. cyanostictus are casual grazers...not much hits the substrate in this tank.

Anyway, here is an updated pic from tonight...I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to redo this tank and finally be rid of all these blasted MTS. Although, I must admit, I haven't seen one in this tank in quite some time. :shrug: Oh well, no matter what, I'm still re-doing it. :D

Mine are pigs. They are always in the fray during feeding time. What were you feeding them? They graze algae as part of there diet in the wild. I usually feed some veggie flake or algae wafers once a week. I also try to get algae to grow on rocks for them. They scrape it off with their teeth. Of course my carnivorous Lepidiolamps become vegitarians as soon as I drop algae wafers in. I really have to get a picture of that, it looks hilarious.

I sold this setup today. Almost unimaginable that I'd ever get rid of it, but it's gone to a new owner, who I know is going to enjoy it as much as I did. Guess I'll just have to replace it with a reef-ready 125gal and put a bunch of coral in it. :happy2:
