Re: Which One Much Better Between Canister Filters & Sumps !

I have zero experience with sumps but I've always been very happy with my Eheim classic canisters. That said, don't underestimate the amount of filtration a sponge filter can be, especially the large sizes made for tanks of your size. I'd keep it whichever route you want to go.

Re: Neolamprologus Leleupi , experiences and reproduction

Thorough and interesting piece; and very well written. The photography and videography were exceptional. Loved the stand-off with the J. marlieri 'Gombe'

Thank you FMueller and SCORE!!!

Even has it placed in our dining room. She has wanted Fronts ...

Re: Returning to the hobby, need input

I was and am in a similar situation to you. I had a 100 gallon (5 foot) set up but the tank had been moved so much that it opened a seam (with a full Tang community in it). I had melanogenys in that - two things about them: I was told at the time that the 100 gallon was the minimum footprint for the...
