Well I have been spending a lot of time at night with the Lunar LED Lamps on staring at the tank watching the activity at night. With just the Lunar LED Lamps on the fish can not see me on the outside so I can get up close and personal. I pulled the camera out and turned the flash on. I snapped close to 100 pictures and go some really neat ones.

Very cool! Great pics. I have LED moonlighting on my 150 and it is great - all I need now are nocturnal fish.... Laughing

Thanks Liz! I have been trying to get a good count on the plecos. I lost count after the meeting. I had only 3 in there before I left for Richmond and came back with 4 or 5. Not too sure Rolling Eyes . Oh and after last nights feeding I woke up too a huge pile of Chocolate Sprinkles lol! Plecos can produce some waste.

The bad part about having this many is the leavings. I did a complete vacuum yesterday afternoon and woke up to this.

That is the case. *lol* My group of Panaque maccus (clown plecos) leaves this much and more daily and the only saving grace is that the corys drive it toward the filter when they forage. This was the subject of my question about the Emporer 400 which you were so helpful with (on the "other" forum.)

At least most of it gets trapped in the blue pads and we don't have to look at it!

You should have seen the sprinkles when I was growing about 50 out together. Everyday I was vacuuming the bottom.
