    Yeah I knew they weren’t wild when I bought them as they were too small. But they looked “altumy” and were declared as such.

    Oh dear Only one source of "domestic" altums and those are from Simon Forkel.

    Little update. Still got these angels in there, I don’t know where to put them or who to give them to.

    Removed all the water lettuce, it was just trapping too much food and gunk. The hornwort is easier, I can just shake it around a little before water changes and in between. Looks half decent, too.

    If I’m lucky the guy I get my discus from will get a shipment of Nanays this week, and hopefully there are some good ones to choose from. Wouldn’t mind replacing the angels with 8 or 10 discus to fill out the tank a bit more.

    Some shots during feeding from last night. I haven’t fed blackworms with red pigment for ages, yet the enhancers in regular granules, even the ones formulated for wilds, still redden the fins.

    You have one of my favorite plecos! Also, I love your greens. My greens originally had dark stress bars, but disappeared in the light blue background tank. They still looked nice. however, I'm a fan of the bars on these particular green wilds.

    The bars only show when there is some action going on in or in front of the tank.
    When they get fed.
    When someone’s in front of them and they think they get fed.
    When doing water changes and they think they get fed.

    You get the idea.

    The rest of the time they show no bars and are a beautiful gold/yellow. There is by far the least aggression going on between them compared to the other 2 groups. Don’t know why.

    Will add more light soon, so their colors should pop even more then. Need to install the UV first though to keep algae in check.

    They are gorgeous Tobi One of my favorite past groups was the first group to young Tefe's I raised. I prefer to see the fish without bars myself.

    Plants out, angels out, Heckels in.
    The hornwort was still catching too much dirt, not worth it in the end. So more “hardscape” than biotope right now.

    I’ll get 5 Tefe greens and 3 Nhamunda Heckels in a couple weeks, so if everything goes well there will be 8 more fish in there in roughly 6 weeks.

    Couldn’t get a good picture as usual, but my worries that they might look crowded or too many were unfounded. Actually looking forward to squeezing the other 8 in there.
