Default Amazon biotope in the making...

I mentioned on Chaz that I was putting together a 90g tank, and now I can finally post some pictures. It was originally going to be an African tank, and for that reason I still have some African species, but I am slowly rehoming them. In the meantime the tank looks like this:

The rock on top of the main manzanita piece will be coming out once it stops trying to float. I intend to also put some leaf litter on the bottom, and the tank water is normally darker than this, it is just clearer because I did a water change right before the photo.

The fish are as follows:

2 Cupid Cichlids
1 Clown Pleco
6 German Blue Rams
3 Pictus Catfish
2 Leopard Ctenopomas (lost one a couple weeks ago )
9 Tiger Barbs
1 Krib

So the italicized fish are the Africans, and they are the ones I am currently in the process of rehoming. Once they are out of the tank I plan to add in around 20 Bleeding Heart Tetras to make a nice school, and possibly a school of ~8-12 cories. I will only get the cories if I rehome the pictus, which I am also considering doing since if my cichlids spawn the fry won't have chance with the pictus in the tank.

Anyway, on to more pictures!

So all those guys were the German Blue Rams, and they are so far my favourite fish in the tank. I have kept them before, but these guys are wild caught from South America vs. farm bred (I had to go through a private dealer but oh so worth it) and already I am seeing such a difference. They look a little bland at this point but these guys are still juvies and I am expecting that as they finish up puberty (in about a month or two) the colours are going to come in nicely.

Cupid + Tigers + Leopard's face on the far right

I could only get 1 photo of the cupid as they are incredibly shy. The one I got though is the female, she seems a little more bold than the male.

I will post more updates as things change if people are interested Sorry the pics aren't that great, sadly I can't figure out how to take good shots with the cannon and am therefore limited to the iphone.
