lol. yeah that's me.

sold the aro a long time ago. it was getting too big for the 4 foot. difficult to keep anyway with young kids running around. the aro used to get startled and jump into the cover and lose scales. happened a few times.

I think my stock level is about there now. maybe room for 1 or 2 more pieces. but have not made my mind up yet on what else to add.
yea that's a good practice
oh what a pity. 2footer still better then none haha.
are you going for a blue and yellow theme for this tank?

Thanks bro. The haps I'm keeping need plenty of open swimming space so I went easy on the rocks and tried to keep it natural looking.

Initially I was planning to get some realistic fake rocks but couldn't find any I liked, so I stuck with the real thing.
