I'm not sure why people wouldn't enjoy Goldens/Snow Whites. A little selective breeding and they can be gorgeous.

Are those shelves from Target? I have a 20L I am waiting to set up, and a stand is one of the things I'm waiting on. I have some wire frame shelves from target that look identical to the shelves in your picture, I thought they wouldn't support that much weight though.

Edit: My bad! I just saw a comment I skipped over saying they were from Home Depot. Thanks for giving me an idea for a stand!

I just got one for my work betta as well. Gonna try to set up a christmas moss tank with maybe 1 or 2 ghost shrimp as well.

Word to the wise, you can get these on allpet for 25 bucks right now
http://www.allpet.com/detail.asp?product_id=523100

Their site isn't great looking but my order came through fine and was really really well packaged. Best deal I'm aware of for this tank.

Do note that the canopy is just 1 piece of glass, No room for HOB filters or anything. However I found you can use 2 of the dividers on the top and that will leave you about 4" of open space, so you could fit in a tiny filter. I'm hoping I can fit a little Azoo Mignon filter in there.

Here's a blurry cell phone shot of the dozens of Golden babies in the tank:



They're turning out to be super-white little critters. The older they get, the whiter they seem to get.

Wow! I love how those goldens look in a group like that. Such contrast!

They've grown up a bit since then and there are more babies.

I'll try to take a proper photo sometime this weekend. Am guessing it's almost time for me to sell some of them off.

Nice! Did you end up purchasing those macro rings?
