Re: Rheophilic fishes, their evolution, requirements

Most highly oxygenated water does flow fast. As far as evolution that is a great question I am not really sure someone could even remotely come up with a best guest time frame.

Re: Erik his tank

It seem as though those to our east can get fish that we seem to have a problem with getting in the states and they are almost located in our back yard. More power to you.

Re: 120 filtration help

Well if finances is not much of a problem. Get an Eheim 2250 or 2260 preferably the 2260. Otherwise get a couple Aqua-clear 110 (formerly 500) to hang on back but keep in mind the cost of 2 aqua clears will run you 150-200 dollars. The good theing about AC is that they don't keep nickel and diming you

Re: Wondering what age agression starts in Vieja Argentea's

Re: ID H.Carpintis or H.Cyano New Photos and Video

I think Tonivic has some of the best pictures of cyano (Texas). I believe the Texas and Carpinte have been crossed at times which is why you will see very small dots with a somewhat blue/green color. But there is a carpinte from the escondido area with much larger blue/green dots.
