This is my work in progress I have pearl long fin danios and my fry (not staying) in there right now not sure what else I can to for it as blue fish are hard to come by for a 21.5 gal tank. The plants will be moved to the sides. Only reason for UG filter was to look like speakers. It's so hard to find hockey decor for tanks. Every other sport but not hockey grrrr so want a zamboni I'm a newbie started in march.this is a Father's Day gift to hubby.

Bercey Figured I'd join in and show my tanks. Gotta try and liven up the Canadian part of this forum. :P

Really like your guys' tanks. Always jealous of other peoples tanks. lol

The first tank is my 20g long. Just re-did it today. Was completely overrun with hair algae and BBA. Was neglected for awhile while I was studying/doing finals at school.
Houses some RCS, neon tetras, a pleco, ottos, khuli loaches, and way too many celestial pearl danios.

The second is plain 5g breeder for even more celestial pearls. lol

The third is my Fluval Edge. Used to love this tank the most, then with exams and how annoying the tank is to do absolutely anything in, its just been left to grow and do whatever it pleases. Some pygmy cories, more RCS, and a few CPD's are in here.

And, saving the best for last, my 10g shrimp tank. Have some super tigers, CRS, and some RCS in here. All the female RCS are currently berried but, nothing going on with the CRS and the super tigers are still juvies.

MarieH Oh that`s cool. I looked up the wormies, I might try that if I can not be impatient next startup. I think the worms are a great idea. I haven`t seen too many gas bubbles, just a few at the beginning. The worms probably would help. I poke the soil with a chopstick so as not to disturb too much. I got 8 galaxies, 4 ottos good advice, and 3 cobra guppies. I found the galaxies shy but with the presence of the joyful gupps, they were all over the tank today and staring back in defiance at me. Life is grand. Where`s all the canucks at? Hockey game lol?

rustbucket Yay! Ottos are schoolers though so three or more would be better if you want to see them out and about!

When I set up the tank, I put everything together, planted it, filled it with water added the worms then gave them a few hours to hide before re-adding the fish.
The more time alone the worms have the better, ideally I would have given them about a month alone but that was not possible since I already had the fish. However the worms are still visible in the tank, so fingers are crossed that their making a colony, if not they also have a 15 gallon dedicated to themselves with no fish to snack on them, just so I always have some around.

MarieH good news is today I see a slight green haze on my glass, tho the plants are doing a great job of outperforming the algae but I think there's enough for at least 2 otos and some cucumber if not. Great. Off to the fish store.Thanks for the info. How do you add the black worms? before you fill? I could see a 90g in my future..oh no there goes the neighborhood lol.

rustbucket Lol, yes worms!! I have mgopm soil, but the worms are California blackworms, fully aquatic and really great for dirt tanks, plus the cory cats are spawning Blackworms are not easy to get in Canada, I ordered them straight form California, but hey anything for a natural tank

I supplement my oto cats with cucumber, or whatever veggie they like that I have on hand Though in a planted tank, there's usually algae Just not always what the otos like.

MarieH Oh thats pretty, 125 gallon wow, wish I could! Wormis in its a garden soil substrate? I used miracle gro organic and garden sand. Was a big mess until massive water changes, then after a few days it cleared but I was thinking big boo boo at the time lol Worms..I thought worms needed access to air and would die being garden worms? Ottos, can`t wait for fav tiny fish.

rustbucket Very nice.

my 125 purely Canadian tank, mostly

Houses all types of good things. Congos, cories, gobies, otos and many others including worms at least until the fish dig them all up
