    That... and I just haven't had much to update - this build took some time and I took down my grow out in the house too soon. The wife wanted the big tank in the house gone and I thought it would come together faster. But between work and a family it took a little longer. It's ok though - I took my time and did the build right.

    Right now I do just fine selling to locals, some LFS's and to wholesalers. At some point I will make it official and start selling online but as it stands I want to get my stock back up first. I'm just starting to hatch again as I'm expecting the new grow out to be ready in a couple of weeks.

    As for the rest of the build I'm working on the right side of the room now. I have 6 20L's and 2 40 breeders that are getting plumbed in now. My hope is that once the cycle is done I'll have water flowing to the rest of the tanks.

    So how is this going to work?

    The overflows look huge.

    What size clowns are going to go in there?

    Do you still have all your pairs?

    Still have all my pairs...

    I have screens for the overflows which are 2" and flowing into a 3" drain line. One the right I'll house the 20l's and 40bdrs. So the plan is to hatch in the house... get them through meta and ready for grow out. Then they'll move into the 20L's and once they are about 1/2 inch they will move into the 100g tubs. The tubs will be broken down by size so as they get larger or if the next hatch is too small to mix into that tub yet I'll start adding to the next tub.

    Quick update! I got a new pair of spawning B&W's (Thanks Scott!) Scott got a new pair of baby Snowflakes! It's going to take a little while for this pair to settle in and start to spawn again but that's OK... I'm in no hurry.

    I'm having trouble keeping all my thread updated - I'm starting to focus more on keeping my Facebook page going - feel free to tag along - Pickles California Clowns.

    I'll still do my best to pop in here though - I'm always looking to see who I can help out next!
