i'm not really one for journals, so i'm just gonna post pics of my current set ups, and hopefully, i'll post pics as things change from here on out.
currently, i'm running (2) 20L, (1) 55g, (1) 8g Ebi, (1) 125g, and (1) 60g. i also have a small emersed set up for my crypts. sorry for the crap pics, but they were taken with my cam phone. maybe one day i'll spend $$ on a camera instead of tank stuff...lol
ok, here we go:
Tank 1. my 125g. since i was a little boy of about 8, when i started keeping fish, i always dreamed of having a tank of 100+ gallons. well, here we are, 35 years later and i finally have it! it is my crypt haven. i'll add a list of them if anyone is curious. here's the pics for this tank.
tank 2: my 55g
this started as my primary tank, and has since been turned into a sort of "grow tank" until i really come up with a scape i really like.
tank 3: 20l #1 "the river tank"
this tank has gone through a bunch of changes recently, however, i finally decided enough was enough and gave it some permanent plantings.
tank 4: my Ebi. i love, love, LOVE these tanks. trying to talk the bed bully into letting me put one of these in the crapper. so far, all attempts have failed.
this just got a major rescape a couple of weeks ago and the shrimpies really seem to love it now.
tank 5: 20L #2 "the kitchen drawer". you know how everybody has that kitchen drawer that collects everything you have no idea what to do with it? well, this is my tank version. it's a grow/quarantine tank, nothing more. it is going to be replaced during the next $1/gal sale since i was dumb enough to whack it with a piece of glass and put a chip and crack in it, about mid-height. still holds water though. after i get it's replacement, it will be wither a dart from tank, or a fire belly toad tank.
tank 6: my newest addition, a 60g. footprint on this puppy is the same as a 40B 36x18, but it is 21" high. other than my ebi, this is the only other tank that has been deemed "shrimp only" from the start. i just set this up friday evening, so it will be quite some time before there is any change to this tank.
and last, but not least, my little emersed set up for my crypts (and a few other things)
that's all of 'em. oh, here's a few other shots that i kinda like :
my "wall o' water" the 60 next to the 125
20L and Ebi together. had to crop the heck out of this pic as to not offend anyone with my "stripper calendar poster" LOL
looking down the left side of my tanks
that's all of them. i'll post older pics later for comparisons. these keep me pretty busy, but they aren't the only tanks i have supplied with fish and plants. in our house, we also have my wife's 55g, my son has (2) 10g's and my daughter has a 15g and a 2g betta tank which currently houses Barney the Betta. they can start their own accts and post pics, i'm freakin' exhausted!!LOL
as always, enjoy and comments/suggestions are always welcome!!
