Hey man thanks for the comments. It's a 125 gallon tank (5 footer) filtered by 2 FX5s pointed at the water surface for water movement. I also have a 1400 gph Hydor Evo powerhead at the top left of the tank for additional water movement.

The lighting is a 48in T5 setup with four 54w bulbs (1x 12k, 1x10k, 1x8k, and 1x18k). Only the 10k and 18k lights were turned on in the quick video I took since it was at night. I usually keep all lights on from 8AM to 8PM and then just the 10k and 18k bulbs on from 8PM-10PM. The rocks get a nice layer of algae but my substrate is getting a lot of algae too which is annoying. The reason I thought it was strange that my substrate was getting algae was because I had this exact same lighting setup on my old 75 gallon tank and didn't have the substrate algae problem. I will probably eventually switch to a different substrate eventually.

I saw two of my Kaiser IIs that look that have been holding the past couple weeks. I kind of dismissed it since they are still so young but today I saw two small fry hiding in some of my rock work. What size do they usually breed? The biggest ones are only 2-2.5 inches! I'm surprised they started so early! Definitely pumped though!

Depends on who's ready to "do it" lol. Obviously you're doing something right and they're happy. Congrats on the fry and awesome looking tank man. Fish look very good.
