    Been awhile since I posted an current video of the 125. Everything and all the fish are doing well. Now I have some 6 inch loaches that showed themselves and my male blue acara are 6 inches as well. One of my red heads is probably close to 5 to 6 inches and the others aren't too far behind. Their some ferocious eaters and I have to do two water changes a week to maintain their excellent water quality they are use to. I do an 80% on Fridays and a 50% on Tuesday's.

    Both those pieces in the tank are oak and the other is some line of hardwood. They didn't Leach much tannins. So I the purigen in the tank and that takes the tannins out of the water.

    I have a large piece of slate attached to the bottom of them to keep them down.

    I use flat slate pieces and a masonry bit to drill through the slate. And use water for lubrication.
