Sunny, sorry to hear the lost. same here, I just lost my Katumbi female that hold 47 fries for me too when the male was trying to spawn. I have my smaller female is holding now.

I didn't think that I would lose her that fast. Lesson learned.

Sorry to hear about that Lien. Same things started with BG but I managed to pull out the best up ones in time to save them. Very soon I'll have about 16,000 gph in powerheads to keep the BG working out all that aggression. "Only" have 12,800 gph right now plus 3,000 gph return pump.

WOW!

That's a lot of power. I am no where near your level. I will add more powerheads. Thanks and hope they will hold for you soon!

They were showing Andrea Bocelli on TV, a concert he did in Portofino. Thought it might get these fish in the mood LOL

Thanks Eddie. The local rock yard sold that to me as green granite and I've never been able to find any more.
