How about a thread where members upload a single pic of their complete set up (or of each of their set ups) with all other interesting details (especially breeding success) - could be a good way to learn what works and what doesn't as well as give some aquascaping ideas. Maybe it could be a thread where no commenting on the tanks is allowed, just a single editable post per member - that way you don't have to wade through pages of "Nice set up dude" type comments to get to the good stuff.

Excellent Idea!
Been a very busy and have not been able to get the images off the camera for the new addition to the frontosa family room.

This is an old shot, I will see about getting a new shot up soon. there have been a few additions.

Well as I started this thread, I'd better put up my tank so here it is:

Image

Its a Juwel 400 which is approx 100 us gall. It is filtered by two Tetratec 1200 filters and heated by a Rena 300w. The rocks were taken from a beach near Land's End. (They took some carrying.)
I have 4 female and three male Wild Tembwe, although I am trying to sell one more male. They breed roughly every month in a rotation. So far I have had no fry but I live in hope. I have a female holding at present.
I change 50% water once a week and add a little bicarb and epsom salts to the water as a matter of course as well as about 1 desertspoonful of Marine salt. Temp is kept at 79 degrees F.
They are fed on NLS, shrimp, krill, bloodworm and fresh fish whenever I catch any.
The background is supposed to be blue but as you can see, it is a mess of algae. I need a plec.
