Hi Edson,

Good to see you here at Loaches Online.

There are a few words in portuguese on your tank setup. Maybe you should translate them to english for everybody to understand.

Hi Marcos,

Thank´s. I´m also happy to meet you here

I believe this is the best site of loaches of the world, and I´m very happy to join him.

I saw the pictures of your new cat in the aquarium forum, that promises many shenanigans. Caution him not to eat Mr. Big Botia.

Do you go to the beach to watch the beautiful fireworks on the beach of Copacabana?

Hugs my friend.

Very nice pics! You have some really nice looking loaches (the other fish are great as well). Your tank is very similar to what I'm working on setting up, though my tank is only ~475 L (125 gal). You've given me a few ideas. Thanks for sharing!

No Edson,

I´m not going to Copacabana to watch the midnight fireworks. It is expected two million people there and it´s raining lots today in Rio. I´ll watch it on TV. :P

EDSONCUNHA,

I have a thread started with some pics. I'm off to a slow cycle with this new tank because I didn't have any other freshwater tanks to take bacteria from. I need to rework my substrate a bit too.
