I see that it has been almost 2 and a half years since I have posted photos of my tanks. I have just been busy working and biking, but have also continued to really enjoy the fish. I find the weekly tank maintenance to be relaxing and enjoyable. I continue to make small changes to the system. I have been experimenting with a DIY denitrator for the last two years to reduce water changes, with some success. Also, the hydroponic plants do quite a good job of removing nitrate and as you can see in the pictures, are growing quite well (I have to trim off large amounts of growth every month). Jim- The two Rostratas that I got from you are doing quite well and still move back and forth across the water bridge between the two tanks. They were about 6.5 years old when I got them from you so they are over 9 years old now. The half a dozen Rostrata that I have in addition are getting nearly as large, but the reticulation of their pattern is still a long way from being as fine (small) as on yours. The 75 gallon river tank that I had with Sewellia is now a single species tank with skunk loaches (Yasuhikotakia morleti). I moved the Sewellia to another tank (I had hoped to breed them, but I found that I had all males (six) so that was not to be). Sorry, that I don't have recent photos of the fish (except for the skunks) but here are the tanks.
First, the 300 gallon tank.
