Not getting a warm and fuzzy on the Ocellatus. I'm going to separate it tonight, I think there is too much feeding pressure in my quarantine tank.

Here is a vide of the DT with a more yellow spectrum. I think it looks a lot better.

Went out and got a few new foods tonight and actually some small successes the Ocellatus. This video is from the third or fourth feeding of the night. It might not look like much, but it's actually a lot of progress.

Then of course there is the big fat puffer that eats everything...love that fish.

Hi there Caribfan, I'm loving your tank. I've always loved angels and butterflies and would love to recreate a smaller version of your tank with butterflies and angels that would be happy in a 110 (primarily dwarfs). What would you say are your biggest success factors?

Sad day yesterday, my tank is officially broken down and moved out of the basement. We're moving this Saturday. We are going to be living in an apartment for 3 - 4 months while I renovate an old farm house.

Fish are all at my parents in a 150 gallon and a 50 gallon. Everyone seems to have survived the move.

I was more emotional than I expected to be, I think it's because I've had a lot of those fish for quite some time

Hoping to get the tank set back up in July or August after we've moved to the farm, will surely keep everyone posted.

Good luck with everything Matt.

I hear ya on the emotion part, especially when you've had them for a while.

Glad you had an option to keep them somewhere in the interim. Hope all goes smoothly for you!

Appreciate it guys, the next four Months are going to be intense between starting a produce farm, renovating a house and continuing full time at day job. Plus I’m supposed to be a husband and father in there somewhere too.
