I have a 125 gallon aquarium. I added six on the first day, 2 went down immediately. I added 3 more and one more went down. I was hoping to enjoy them before they did that!

The 5 in my smaller tank are all down at once. I'm feeding pet sand. Lol.
125 gallon! Wow. That's my goal. 125, 130. I keep looking for deals.

We had a pacu that was in that aquarium for many years. Now that he's gone, I decided to utilize the aquarium for something else. I am loving these guys!
