Default New 150 gallon setup

Here's a quick, SD iphone video of the new setup in my office. I will make a more detailed video in the future showing the filtration and stand setup. Stand is steel framed, with a 3cm granite top. We had custom panels made to shroud the stand that match the cabinets in our office. They're held to the stand with industrial velcro. Filter is a 55 gal sump with filter socks and seachem pond matrix as the main bio media. Pump is roughly 1300 gph. Vortech mp40 and k4 are used for water movement.

Stock is petro longola and ilangi tropheus. A couple of BN plecos from my breeding group are in there as well. Lighting is a 48" t5 HO fixture with 4 bulbs.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks guys. The move came at a price.... The group that got along great in my 180 went bonkers once they were moved. Lost 3 males in 2 days. The group is much smaller now, but at a better ratio at 2.8 in the tank. 2 males were killed overnight in a tank with zero rocks or decoration...

Nice! Those Longola are big. I count about 10 of them, what the ratio? and how many Ilangi do you have there?

Hope you get some fries soon.

They truly are jumbos. A buddy got some wc and I was blown away about how much bigger mine were at only 3.5 years of age. There are 2 males, 8 females. I have a male that I was able to save that will be a single in my 125 troph tank.

There are about 20 f1 ilangi from mixed sources. I don't even really like ilangi, but I got them for a great deal and needed the dithers for the Petros. There are 2 in there that I suspect are nkondwe that I need to remove
