Default New Ilangi Setup

Finally sharing some pics of my WC Ilangi. I purchased a group in March of this year (thanks to Steve at Valley Aquatics) and just moved them from their 75 gallon tank to their new 180 gallon setup. The group is only 12, but I have another 20 in quarantine that were purchased about 2 weeks ago (also thanks to Steve). They are probably ready to move right now, but I am anxiously awaiting the first fry from the original group (currently have 4 holding) and I don't want to disrupt anything.

It's amazing what a difference in breeding activity since I moved them to the larger tank. They always showed signs of it in the small tank, but never held anything. Almost immediately after moving to the bigger tank, they were nonstop dancing and a few were holding. That was almost 4 weeks ago, so I'm expecting any moment now!

Beautiful tank set up and congrats on the coming fry! How are you filtering your 180 since you can't see any intakes or outflows anywhere? That's what I would like to have!

I'm still playing with lighting. Right now I have two 34" compact flourescents 10000K. I have two empty spots that had actinic blue - not sure if I use these as sunrise/sunset lights or combo with different flourescents. Open to suggestions.
