I did tx for parasites before and he had no signs of anything then. I am adding live plants soon. He is still looking great and they all seem to have gone through a slight growth spurt as well.

Im no expert but when I expected there was bacteria or fungus in my 75g, I used Pima fix and Melafix together and my fish couldnt be more happy. They are right about the two filters. Its nice to have one you can start another tank with quickly. Good luck with your new tank. :wink:
