Definitely the jeepney, the gaudiest kind! Where you argue with the driver about the fare (ha ha, tell him how many kilometers it is from point A to point B so he can't argue with your math). I was too much of a smart--s as a kid for my own good. Good thing age has taught me that experience sometimes counts for more

Hey @aquafella! I was born in the Philippines and the ten-gallon tank I had as a teenager (ha ha don't ask me how long ago) had a red trim. Purchased it myself in Chinatown (Binondo). Yup, I was a teen-ager runnin around all over the place. Good times. For the life of me though, I can't imagine how I would have carried it home in a jeep. Must have obtained a ride from a relative somehow.
Nice tank you got there by the way.

Awesome @HDBenson..the tank you have is looking great..you should set up the farm tank that you have or get a nano tank and set it up so you can still use those extra plants..
@Tihsho A friend gave me this tank, I'm not sure about the blue trim company but I believe that this tank that I have has been with different owners and has survive decades because the tanks that are sold here now are all rimless. Nice to know someone in this forum that has been here in the PH.

Started with 1 plant. Never intended to be planted. Now almost a year later and I got this mess.
Light is a Stingray, too little for a 37G. Been doing Flourish Comprehensive 2x week.
Now started some Macros and a little Excel. This tank grows brown algae like crazy. This is the clean version pic.
You can see holes in leaves, ripped looking leaves, yellow skeleton leaves, BGA remnant leaves, everything you never wanted.

I had a 120g., it broke, downsized to two 40 gal breeder tanks.
I'm currently shopping for another large tank so I can combine these back together again :-)
top 2 pics are from same tank, 40 breeder, sand over dirt, cheap t5 lighting, no ferts or chemicals. Low maintenance. Stock= 6 rosy barbs and 6 Odessa barbs
Bottom tank is mostly plants tied to wood, t8 lights no chemicals or ferts, stock=8 congo tetras

|HDBenson||@Tihsho.. bc I can. But seriously, just as one of those experiments to see what happens, etc. Plus, why do emersed when you can do submerged and cut out the drastic transition? It also makes a convenient laboratory for trying out new stuff before going into a display. And, I only have one display right now so, I need something to play with... boys and toys ya know?|

@aquafella when I saw that blue trim on your tank it took me back to when I was a kid living overseas in Manila for a couple years, then I saw your location! Is the blue trim company specific over there? I use to have the tank here in the US then one day the bottom pane gaveway during a scape change.
@HDBenson, why have a 10 gallon submersed farm? Why not go emersed?

I've recently downsized to this display and a 10g farm tank:

Here is my first ever fish tank pretty sure its 10g (900mm long 230mm wide x 250mm tall, These photos are from when i first filled it, I need to get some better photos of the plants I have since added, I have put in some hair grass and Glosso (I think I didnt pay to much attention to what I was buying) Also I dont know how much light my tank is getting, perhaps too much as I am starting to get some hair algae and the plants are growing fairly fast. I am thinking of getting a mini Co2 setup to try get some good ground coverage.
Added some Rummy nose Tetras and a bronze catfish, need to get a few more catfish to keep this one company.
I have not tested the water yet or added any additives, going to test tonight and hopefully get everything i need to keep the water under control on the weekend (along with more fish!)
