It's time for a photo update of my 75 gallon catfish tank!  

Recently, a group of Aspidoras spilotus juveniles were added.  
Because they're so young, I've been giving them extra food which all of the fish seem to be enjoying!  
 

It's a real race to see who gets there first.  
Catfish left to right: Corydoras cf. aeneus, Corydoras trilineatus, and Aspidoras spilotus, with cardinal tetras swimming above.


One of the cards drops down closer to the action.

 

 


... As more join into the fray!  
Note the spotted rubbernose Chaetostoma cf. milesi coming in from the right.


Two cf. aeneus, the rubbernose, the small spilotus, and one ruby red tetra, Axelrodia riesei.  
They are a really rich red, in the right setting.


One of eight Panaqolus maccus catfish, also called clown plecos.


Last but not least is one of the banjo catfish.  There are two species of banjos in this tank - this one is Bunocephalus colombianus. They like to stay buried and this is about as "out" as they get!  

 
Here is the mid-section in a pull-back view.  

I really enjoy watching this tank!  besotted

Looks like your cardinal tetras are getting more than their fair share.
Any other pics of your Axelrodia riesei ?

Just this one and it's not that great.  They are not nearly as bold as the cardinals, probably because they were wild-caught (I got them in 2009 and in 2011 from Mark Denaro.)

Thanks, Ron. Very Happy  The food lured the fish into view and then I just snapped away until I got a few good ones.  David's tips have sure come in handy for me!
