Holy Toledo!!! That thing is gorgeous! Let me know if you ever need a tank sitter. I've been wanting one of those for the last decade.

Wow! If so, congratulations! What a lucky purchase to already have a second one. I'm very jealous.

Well I am lucky. Not a purchase, recently being back in the hobby I still have good friends from long ago that help me out.

That alone is worth another congratulations! Having good friends in a hobby like this is worth more than gold. I've had more than a few times where a good friend is what kept me going when my tank was ready to quit on me.

They look amazing! I love all the extra color they've gotten since the last picture.

The lower the phosphate the more mix the color they have.

Thinking one might split soon. It is getting big.

You're killing me! Or, more specifically, my jealousy is.

I've been wanting one of those for a long time, but so far I haven't even seen one in person, and I am curious: your pictures show different shades of color, from orange to yellow, depending on the picture. So which one (in your opinion) is the most accurate picture when it comes to the color of a Chicago Sunburst?

It really depends in the quality if the water. Better water quality like lower phosphates will bring out more coloring.
