My slice of Amazonia

I've decided to liven up the aquarium in my office. With a tinge of saddness, I will be getting rid of Sam the Saratoga and creating a community tank for fishes native to the Amazon.

I'm planning on getting a school of Geophagus earth-eaters (not sure what species yet), maybe a giant pencilfish (or two), some catfishes, and a few other cool-looking things.

The revamp will take place in the new year since my office will be without power over the Christmas/new year shut down when the University is officially closed.

Awesome! I used to have heaps of warm water fishes..until the thermostat died on me and so did the fish :( One day I will get another lovely tank and some cool fish... looking forward to seeing what you get.

Thanks Cazzie. The same thermostat malfunction happpened to one of my tanks when I was overseas. Of course, it was the dead of winter in Canberra and I lost a really expensive fish that had cost me $590. I'm going cheaper fish this time.
