    Tank is looking great, the Bala's look so happy :) The Sev and Oscar look like BFFS!
    I really like the Balas in the dark tank, but I think they looks really sharp with he back of the tank painted white as well! Do you plan to keep it white or do you think you will go back to black?

    I have no idea what I will do. Probably keep it white since it is easier.

    Not really sure. The first of the fish are fine in the tank. They were older. I moved the tank and everyone was fine at night for a point ( around 12AM I noticed they weren't swimming well), but in the morning, 4 were goners. I did treat the water, temperature was the same. Ammonia and nitrite were 0, nitrates were 20ppm after the move. The ammonia, nitrite were 0ppm before and nitrate was around 40ppm before the move. pH was 7.6 before and after.

    Well after cleaning up I figured it out I believe. I use seachem safe and I dissolve my dosage in water first so no fish can eat it. Well, I forgot to add it....so 100% water change with no chlorine remover...

    It was a distracting day but I am glad I found a reason or I believe so.
