Love the fish against the white sand, and the lighting is perfect.

So what are you using for lighting?

Thanks Jim, the lighting is the ole garage double T-12 florescent 48'' lighting set up that you can find at Home Depot for under $10.

I had used some clorox (well not really, i dumped some crushed chlorine tablets in there from the pool) for 48 hours and then rinsed everything out good and submerged the rocks again with a capful of PRIME.
I then removed the rocks and rinsed them good one by one as i lay them in the tank. I aded a few in the Moops tank and almost killed one of my petricola catfish when the rock slipped out of my hand! poor thing was spinning in pain for 15 seconds..thank goodness for them skull heads of theirs. She survived.
All is good and they all seem to love the new look as much as I do, thanks for the comments!

Great scape! Love the simplicity and the black background.
What do you use for filtration? How many trophs are you planning to keep in this tank?

Had 30, now 31, added the Alpha male back in from his long time out, he's the papa of a 3rd of the group, and 2 multi syndontis (want to add 3 more) with the 17 year old dhonti/petricola synodontis (<-- i don't really know what this one is..lol)

Set up for the 90g is one 55g wet/dry under the tank, 110 AquaHagen filter, and a Marinland HOT Magnum filter. The 110 just has the sponge and the Magnum has small (Ehiem) lava rocks in it. The sump of the wet dry has bio-balls and crushed coral rock in there (at the bottom) to help stabilize the ph. The sand was live sand intended for salt water but seems to be working out for this tank. and a Hydor Koralia for some water movement.

All you have to do is boil them.
