  1. I would love to more about Rusty’s stocking levels and approach.
    Were those big tanks 6×2 or 8×2?
    How many Red Devils did he have in that tank-12+?
    How many bifas did he have in a tank?
    Saw some parachromis in one or two tanks?
    Is there anywhere to look this stuff up?
    Probably the video I’ve liked best thus far!!

  2. I honestly cant think of another situation where i have been so envious of another person , the guy has my dream fish room with 90 ish Cichlid tanks and then just as a small cherry on top 2 HUGE Koi ponds , amazing

  3. I've seen tours of the Wessel fish house before, but I could watch another thousand – those flaring firemouths are amazing! And the swordtails. And the…
    I'm hearing gears grinding in Cory's head… If I buy part of the golf course and put in a huge pond…
    And Jimmy's… You want me to dig 6 feet deep!?… how many square feet!?
    And Joel's… Start with a backhoe, a crew of 8; and then… concrete moorings for the studio on the pier… art installations…

  4. Hi I'm new to the aquarium hobby and I wanted to start out with a 10gal tank and I was wondering if the fish I'm getting would do good with each other and how many I should keep in the tank noted it will have two filters one with a 3 stage filter and a regular sponge filter.
    African dwarf frog-1
    Neon tetras-4
    Bristlenose pleco-1
    Haha I know its alot but I really need help deciding how munch I can actually keep or put in the tank.
    And also which type of substrate is good for live plants?
