Bad call, bad watch on my part... We had raised 2 adult tilapia 21inch Nile and Blue in the "less aggressive" 4500 gal for 5 years, who were complete and brazen hogs and outcompeted everyone for feed all the time. So thought to try the new Nile adult in the jumbo 4500 gal hoping that the size, smarts, and attitude might save it, but only to have it killed by the big catfish on the third day. The sneaky cats managed to fool me and did their damage when I wasn't looking and when I noted the damage, it was too late, the tilapia hasn't recovered from the stress in QT.

Thank you Eric. If you've reached this astonishing conclusion having observed only my foot and maybe part of leg, it'd be a good idea for me to be more chaste in my future filming...

I was doing housecleaning in the 25K gal, blowing sediment out of the liner folds and saw something small dart out at one point. To my dismay it was a second crayfish! I've no idea how they survive surrounded by predators. Now that I took out most rocks, it decided to hide in the liner folds, I guess. So it has gone into Lucky's 240 gal for now. We'll call it Lucky2. The original Lucky was adopted by a family of friends and rules a 2 gal tank in style at their place.
