Country: United States
Description: The local water supply has high nitrates so I can't get them lower than 20 ppm without using RO water. In the upper right corner that ugly piece of sponge is to prevent curious fish from swimming into the overflow. The trickle filter has 5 gallons of bioballs and the sump is a standard 10 gallon tank. I haven't had any problems with aggression, but it is hard to get food down to the Bichir because the Cichlids gobble it all up so quickly. My Syno rarely comes out from hiding, even during feeding time, I'm hoping he will become less shy as he gets more used to his new home. General Information Filtration - Emperor 400 w/ Biowheels & Trickle Filter Air Pump - Powerhead w/ Venturi in sump Heater - 250w Submersible in sump Lighting - 3 ft. 20w fluorescent Substrate - Black Gravel 10 lbs.
