I tried another comment (3rd time) on utube and it said "pending approval". Not sure if that means you or utube that has to approve the comment? Maybe check your "utube settings"? Never ran into this problem before. fish avatar
My user name on youtube is Jesterspub. That's funny, I'll try the cell phone camera, surprised it worked better then the digital camera. The comment(s) & video on utube could be "pending" as well, check back later in the week maybe? fish avatar
hey, i did not recieve a video response from u. what's ur username at youtube? fish avatar
i'l check again. i just used a cellphone camera. Nokia 6630. i dont have a digital camera here. fish avatar
Hey,,,I tried a video (webcam)response on utube..Let me know if it worked or not? Video didn't seem to show but maybe the voice caught??? fish avatar
Tried again on utube?? Rating worked though..:) Wanted to know if u used digital camera for the pics and what settings u used? Darn fish always move and blurry! fish avatar
hi jestrespub. thanks again for ur comment. i checked my account on youtube, i didn't recieve ur msg. fish avatar
Hey phoenix,,,checked out your video...congradulations! Can u answer my questions I left there please? Also check out "jesterspub" on utube..have a few videos as well from a year ago. Cheers Buddy Mike fish avatar
thank you for ur comment sir. i'm really glad that u liked my aquarium. more power to you and God bless! :-) fish avatar
WOW!!!! This is the most beautiful Freshwater Fish Tank that I ever seen!! Very colorful fishes that contrast your plastic green plants. How I wish I had this tank! Very realistic and natural looking. You got talent in aquascaping dude. This tank deserves to be number one!!! Two thumbs up!!! Congratulations for a job well done!!! fish avatar
thank u for ur comment kingcichlid. it depends if ur going fully decorated tank or no decoration tank. if fully decorated, u can house 40 pcs. 1 inch fish. i know that my tank is overstock with fishes that is why i change 5% of water everyday instead of 10% weekly. always check the quality ur water every 2 days. if no decorations, u can house 80 pcs. 1 inch size fish. but remember, fish grow. so once they grow big, u have to separate the larger fish to another tank. fish avatar
wow very nice tank you got there. i know over stockin the tank makes the fish less agressive but is there ever too much fish ? since you know more about these beatiful cichlids could u tell me a good number of cichlids i should have in my 80 gallon tank thanks! fish avatar
see video pics of my award winning show quality african cichlids at youtube. just type award winning african cichlids. they are more colorful and stunning than my fishes here. tnx! fish avatar
thank you for ur comment sir. yeah, parrots are south american cichlids. they are not that very aggressive unlike other south american cichlids. as long as your tank has lots of hiding place and u house lots of cichlids, they don't bully each other. :-) u got nice set-up too. fish avatar
Very nice tank u have there! I see u have south american and african cichlids, do they behave well together or one group dominates the other? Parrot is south american, right? Maybe more aggression if u had mbuna? Mike fish avatar
