Here is a short video of my 150-gallon SA community (don't tell the rasboras!)

I have 22-25 of the geos that I got two months ago as fry, and I'll be culling the group considerably once they get some size on them. I'll also be adding a group of wild angels to go with the single leopoldi angel I have in there currently. There is also a wild Bolivian ram and a pair of blue rams, as well as assorted tetras and rasboras.

This tank is kept relatively warm at 80, and the water softened with almond leaves (you'll notice the water has a slight tea-colored tint to it). The sand is very fine sugar sand (aragonite), with pH about 7.

Well, the geos are getting their color, and some are getting their orange heads. They are still extremely active and curious, and come rushing over every time I come near the tank. I've added some Bolivan rams to the group, since they'll hang out in the rockwork where the geos don't go, and I've added some H. bentosi ("peppermint tetra") that show off well with their red/pink color. It won't be long before I'll need to thin out the geos and add some wild angels to go with the leopoldi. I've set up a 45g to (hopefully) house a pair of geos for breeding once they get mature and pair off, and leave some in the 150 display.

Very nice set up! I currently have a 55-gallon community tank and I'm looking to expand to atleast a 75-gal. Canister filter set-ups get kinda pricey so I'm afraid of going much bigger than a 75-gal lol.
