Hi all,
It is a lovely tank, are your Philodendrons doing better now with the LED lighting?

Thanks, I haven't got Philodendron anymore. Because of the heat that the GU10 lights were producing, the Philodendron was a lost case. I want to try Philodendron sp. Suriname to grow under the LED lighting and see how it will do.

I want to get a 55 gallon slightly planted tank with many caves and I am thinking of getting 2 electric blue acaras, 3 blue rams, a apistogramma, 3 angelfish, and some corrydoras. Will that work if I keep the temperature at about and 80 or less?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
Hi

Hi Fred, do you have any apistos for sale? I'm looking for Apistogramma trifasciata. I'm about an hour and a half from Mtl.
