First off, I would like to say that you are all great for the posting of your opions, facts, findings, and general knowledge about life. I am a green horn about cephs (it should be noted that I have kept aquaria for about 15 years), but I have been gathering all the info. I can, before embarking on the ceph quest. I would greatly appriciate any insight into the ceph hobby. Now... as for my aquarium, I have an 180gal. reg. with 200lbs l/s. A 55 gal. sump/refugium (sp?) that contains 40lbs. l/s. and plenty of lighting, maybe too much for a ceph. And about 50lbs. base rock for the little guy. Thanks, in advance for any information that you might provide, and for reading my post!
