Tyger What a beautiful tank! I think that you could call it a "X Fish Paradise" as most freshwater fish would love this tank! Well, done!

This is a 120gal el natural with 3 Rope fish, I've rescued a rope fish from a 20gal half full no heater, no filter and one algea covered aquarium "decoration". He was fine, perked up in a 30gal el natural.

Yes, the tank purchased used, had silicone thickly applied. I believe it had come apart already and the previous owner had just gooped it together then sold it. When it split the frame of the stand/hood I built prevented the whole tank coming apart, although the top 4" of water escaped.

nesopheus Rope fish paradise in all its' glory. I just pulled out a 2.5 gallon paill of solid plant matter. It was so overgrown after a month that it was dark under the water. The rope fish have reduced the population of guppies to a quarter, mainly feasting on males, and the breeder tank is in full swing. Hope you all enjoy my art form.

nesopheus Kinda funny, calling it a Rope fish Paradise and not providing a pic of the namesake. You can see one in the third pic I posted, top left. There are three in total and they like to come out between 6pm and 8pm. I often see them first thing in the morning and by the moon lights after the lights shut down. Their names are Athos, Porthos and Aramis.

Learner Great Job Man! Love the tank. Any good photos of your beloved rope?

nesopheus The resurection is complete the picture perfect. I want to thank all those who contributed comments and for all the help given during my major die off. This final leg of my journey after the glass of the tank separated and I worked a full rebuild has been very rewarding. Success is your proof. Welcome to my piece of the Niger river, a home for Erpetoichthys Calabaricus, an El Natural, Rope Fish Paradise.

Alaizabelle I have a red dwarf lily bulb in one of my tanks. It will oh so slowly grow a nice little crown, that will root and break off. Then I just move the bulb and do it again! I think I have 4 lily plants in my tank now.

lahune Thanks for sharing these great pictures of your tank. I really like the look and the whole scenery! It's nice to see how the plants have grown since you've posted the first pictures in december. And it looks like a very lively aquarium with many different creatures in it!
