And before myka jumps in here I am doing my very very best to loose the freshie mentality when applying anything to salt :) LOL
Its hard all the patience and time frames that go into this new hobby but it sure is worth it :)

Sold a few in town, shipped a few to vancouver and gave a couple to a friend.
I still miss them and will probably get them again down the road but this salt tank will be my main focus for a good long while lol

Those Aros are beautiful.

Did your rays ever have pups?

I think I remember seeing a pic of your dual 180 stand on MFK, is that right?

finally something a little more up my alley! Fresh water lol love the aros, I would love to keep some, but my apartment lack room and floor support for an adequate tank :lol: maybe someday done the road! for now my focus is my cichlids, and the fry, and My nano, which has been nothing but a head ache so far hahaha. I'm slowly figuring out all my problems with my saltwater, its sure a heck of a lot different then fresh

:lol: Patience pays off. In regards to a reef tank I once heard someone say, "The only thing that happens fast is a crash." Yup. LOVE the Arowanas btw. :D
