lol i like to think for the cars but her real name is Autumn named by Kyles mom. but we call her audi for short.. she responds to audi.. and stinky..


i really like the low profile on this tank. its unique.. and a longer tank makes more room for more plants.. i can wait to start finding some more mosses.. my friend who has all my shrimp has some christmas moss that im stealing a chunk off of.. hahahah she'll never know

Whats the measurements on that tank. Looks like a great size. I only ask because it looks custom built.

well turns out that after my guy at fusion glass looked at the tank he said it would be cheaper and better put together if he just built me the same tank with new glass.. perfect! and the glass will be slightly thicker.. i guess the old stuff was super thin and all different widths... hahaha i guess thats what you get for a dollar.

so in a couple weeks i get my new tank. then cycling can begin!!!

still havent been able to locate my filter... the evil ppl at "not so local fish store" where no help at all so i will just buy it online i think. everytime i need something i have to drive about 2 hours to a store, so i will be taking this tank slowly.

Haha! All that hard work just to get a new tank. That totally sounds like me. Cannot wait to see the tank come in. I absolutely love my 15 gallon tank. Stupid American question here: Do you guys use gallons or liters typically in measurements?

They use liters sewingalot. America is the only country that uses the standard measurement. Lame I know, but at least the tried to switch back in 78' (says my dad). I derimmed my 15 and found that there is a half inch of glass that overlaps the bottom pane. I think it might look cool or like a piece of crap...You did a great job!

Thanks, Caton. I am pretty sad for not knowing that answer and I was too lazy to google. Let's spam SkyGrl's journal until she updates us. j/k

lol we only use gallons for fish tanks so HAH! lol i think if you tried talking to anyone in liters for fish tanks they would look at you like you came from mars... or USA.. j/k

im really looking forward to scaping a low profile tank. it gunna look sooo cool. i picked up my substrate, black flourish sand. 2 lrg bags for 24.99.. couldnt pass that up.. and i picked up my filter that im cycling on a spare standard 15 gallon i had laying around in the basement. its been cycling for a couple weeks ish now. i seeded it from one of my rena XP3 that needed a cleaning anyway. its currently housing a preggers dayglow...

spam away.. i love idle conversation!

So my question wasn't so dumb after all! Sweet steal on the black sand. I am really jealous now. How is the dayglow doing? The pair is a beautiful couple. You are going to have some good looking children. Great idea on cycling the filter while you wait.

Since I am spamming now, did I mention I like your picture in your avatar? You look so happy.

i worry about her all time.. for a couple days i thought she had dropped her babies during the move from the 170... lol but i was worrying in vain.. her mouth is expanding daily i attempt to feed her crushed flake hoping she will suck some past her babies but she doesnt seem intrested. i think im a little overbearing but this is my first real fry raising experience. (well besides the pregnant yellow lab we got a year ago.)

lol i want to set up the tank asap so i thought why wait the extra time for the cycling and start it now... plus i wanted to play with my new filter... ive never had an ehiem before and MAN im converted! i love that everything is so well built.

that was a night out with one of my besties! we always have so much fun and tend to get into trouble when we go out together... but i love a little trouble. it makes the night more fun... a random need to cause trouble... by myself im meek and innocent.. when im out with a friend... watch out.. lol

Tell me about. I still worry when my platy fish get preggers and they are always breeding. I would be a nervous wreck with another mouth brooder. When we had cichlids, I would check the tank several times a day when they started breeding.

Eheim is definitely my favorite filter as well. I have others, but they are the easiest to clean and can be dropped quite a distance full without breaking, lol. Don't recommend doing this. You will get a floor full of fish water.

You are making me miss my college friends! We used to have loads of fun, especially my last year of undergrad. Sadly, they have all moved back home or to other locations. But boy did we get rowdy!
