Ive meant to do this journal for a while, but there are so many picture to upload, i just never felt like it!
Tonight is the night though!
So, lemme introduce you to my big tank.
Its 50 gallons, and is home to my betta, Tyrion, my original nine guppies, Which all kinda have names, and some of their off spring, some fully grown, some almost, and some juvies, totaling 15-17? I think? Im bad at counting fish! Whenever they have babies though, i hunt those suckers down and put em in my fry tank..
Theres also seven cories, four emerald, and three albino. There was three salt and pepper cories, but one died, and i added the other two into my ten gallon, and one died recently.
There were ten pristella tetras, but i took them out, and they are waiting in another tank to e rehomed, and there was ten cherry barbs, but i had horrible luck with them, the females in particular, getting sick, randomly dying, and getting weird growths and sores that none of my other fish got. So i removed them a few weeks ago, to my QT tanks, and they immediately all got ick and died. But as bad as it sounds, they were such a frustration, and even started hunting in packs to kill my new cherry shrimp, im glad they are gone. It does kinda suck because i really like the look and behavior of the cherry barbs..just not the pack hunting my shrimp part! Maybe one day ill try them again..for now, no more Cherries. =/
Anywhooo...Back to residents of my tank!
Along with my gups and Tyrion, there are my plecos, a rubbernose and a bristle nose,[which rasps the hell outta my amazon sword, but hes just to awesome to get rid of], and some apple snails. Currently there are only two male apple snails [one golden one brown striped] in the tank, as my females were getting way too much 'attention' from the males! I have two females [again, one golden and one brown striped] in separate tanks, and i just recently got an ivory female! Shes in my ten gallon though. I mated her with my brown striped male, because i wanted to see if she was a girl or a boy. When i think of it, i shouldve done it with my golden male, because i just love goldens.
There is also four juvie apple snails, from my first egg sack, and i think 15 MTS, and a handful of cherry red shrimp as well.
On to the pictures!!
Heres a first-ish picture, where all i had was water sprite and parrots feather, and still had plastic plants...
The next picture, i had added caboma, two smaller swords, an onion plant and some anacharis.
The next shot, i added a huge amazon sword, as you can see. Cost me $12 and well worth it!
The next couple of shots was me rearranging the tank, cause i am never satisfied!
Then i got a huge plant order from H4n, and shrimps from NYKitten!
I cant for the life of my find my plant list, so here is me guessing at what i got:
I think that was the list!
Anyways, here are pictures is took of my order.
And yes, i picked through my order and found this subwassertang! [I really nee to get an order of this!]
And shrimpies from NYkitten...
The adults went into to 50 gallon, but didnt survive long, as i found my gups having shrimps sans cocktail sauce about a week and a half later. Half the juvies went in the fifty gallon and half in the ten. Im pretty sure most of them got eaten, though i do still see them, sometimes a bunch at once, so i know they are still there! I do plant on having a shrimp only tank after Christmas though.
So, this is all the pictures i can upload this post, so ill continue in another post!
