I've found a couple of scources that can order them.

Really? I've never seen them in the area, outside of one iffy seller who happens to be one town over from me.

Vals can use the bicarbonate in water to extract their needed carbon. Don't need CO2.

I wanted to correct what I said about the val from Tanganyika. Seems that it's not so much the lighting that influences the height it grows (as I originally understood) but the hardness of the water. It stays shorter (like 2-4") in harder water like in Tanganyika and grows taller (like 12") in softer/avg water. So apparently the water hardness is the limiting factor more than the lighting. But again, I have no idea if that's typical for val in general or not. Always learning....

I got my multies from Bluechip.  In their tank raised they have quite the selection.

I got my email a day or so ago. I'm not upgrading either.

The dimensions for that tank are awesome! You might  need more wattage on your heaters. I haven't found wave makers to be necessary for tanganyikans. I would stock the multies, a dwarf Julie species , a hardy open water swimmer like giant danios.

Good luck, post pics when you get the tank.

Setting Up for Shell Dwellers / New tank
« Last post by c_man7 on July 17, 2017, 10:23:30 AM »
After starting my first Multi Colony a few weeks ago I fell in love with these fish. I find myself watching this tank way more than my reef tank. So I decided I'd upgrade my tank in a few months. I'm in the process of selling my reef tank. The tank I'm looking to get is the Zoo Med low boy tank 48"l x 24"w x 10"h. I plan to add a 3d background to hide my equipment and intakes. Plan to have
2x SunSun 302 filters
2x SunSun 500gph wavemakers
2x 50w heater
1 air pump with dual bubblers.

I'll add a few rock piles and would like to add a few different species.

I will move my multie colony over to this tank. I know I want some smaller species of gombe Julie. What else would I be able to add to this tank? and  Sand or rock dwellers or open water swimmers I could add?

I've been searching through some of my other forums posts to replace pics but it is very tedious, however I don't have too many pics on forums, mostly equipment related.

Good question on the cost of uploading to the forum owner since they will now be hosting the pics.

BTW, I just got the dreaded PB email regarding upgrading plans.  Not going to happen for me!
