Dream Tank Up and Running!!

Well, after a very long time, our "dream tank" is now a reality! Our 6 Botia "angelicus" and 8 Botia striata were temporarily housed in a 40G long, and our 15 Botia sidthimunki in a 50G, all of which was sitting on a heavy duty shelving unit. This has all finally been purged into a new 90 gallon tank on a stand instead. We found huge pieces of Malaysian driftwood in a store while visiting my mom (about 1,800 miles from where we live), and couldn't resist grabbing a couple of them to mail back to ourselves here at home. We freaked when we stumbled across a whole shelving unit full of the stuff in the store because we haven't been able to find a single piece of this stuff anywhere in Ontario over the past two years!

They all get along fantastic, and look great together too! It was absolutely breath-taking to see these three species all together for the first time, especially with how they immediately took to each other so well and started schooling and dancing together.
