I recently shunted all the brackish fish out of the front room tank and into fish house so i could have a bit more colour on display and not have the huge algea problems that come with brackish water, you can see the back is still covered in algea which i am slowly removing a bit at each water change.

Anyway this is what it looks like now

This guy didn't mind posing for a picture, colours are coming on nicely now

Very nice CFC. I have a soft spot for Brycons. :)

Also, those parrots have grown a lot since you first got them! The colors are finally starting to show.

It is a freshwater tank, it used to be brackish but i moved all the brackish fish and water out so i could make it freshwater again.


Is it a Brycon hilarii Kewskills? I was down there a couple of weeks ago and they only had that big silver one with the black stripe and the dorado which i think might be a Brycon whitei. If they have more hilarii i'll be down like a shot but i want to try and keep a same species group.
