As mentioned, the Big Als Floss comes in a roll. It's more rigid than the Walmart floss so it can take a higher current. The Walmart floss is a lot more fluffy but surprisingly still holds up under...

I think the beach pebbles worked out quite well. Gives the tank a nice rugged look. Attached is a picture of one of my 50g tanks.

Is it tall or long?

If it is long, lots of small fish.

If it's tall, a few bigger fish.

I've got a couple breeding pairs. Part of Charlie's Diaspora.

I find they tend to breed most in summer. Likely because I don't heat my tanks and summer is when the water is warmer.

Got me a new Arowana!

Attached are a couple of Pics of the High Back Gold Red Tail Arowana I got last week. He's pretty small right now (About as long as my fist is wide) but he should get much larger in short order.

Looking for a Bigger Guppy

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could raise in a 120 g tank that would reproduce as aggressively as a guppy, be easy to maintain, and grow to 3-4 inches in length?

How long have you had the Pleco's? The female might still be a bit young.

As for the male, six inches might be a bit long for a bushy nose. Are you sure they are the same species?
