Zombie Tank!


GloFish Electric Green Tetra

Someone posted about making a Zombie theme in the link above. It got me thinking, and I may do a Haunted Cemetary Theme. But I can't figure what size tank to do. Someone also posted they look like White Skirts, which is what they look like.

Plants (Hopefully!):
Downoi
African Water Fern
Dwarf and Regular Hairgrass
Red Lotus (Maybe?)
Red Root Floaters (Maybe?)
Fissidens fontanus or Taiwan Moss or Java Moss on the rock "gravestones"


I am thinking:
GloFish Tetras I have 2! (Getting 3 more atleast!)
Glass Catfish (5 Minimum)


And/Or hopefully....
Solid White or Red Betta
Glass Bloodfin Tetras (5 Minimum)
Indian Glass Fish (Unpainted and 5 Minimum)
Blind Cave Tetras (5 Minimum?)
Albino Cory Catfish or Albino and Regular Kuhli Loaches (5 Minimum for each)

I would think a 29+ would be good, give the tetras room to school and I think its that or like a 50 that is the minimum recomended for glass cats..


I am sorry.. I feel as if I may have had a part in this

I have read 20-30 gallons for glass cats and the same for the White Skirt Tetras.

:p Either way it is going to take me a while to set up.

Your in Bentonville that is like 4 hours away. My family and I had to travel past Bentonville to Missouri to get a dog. Do you have pictures of it?

Oooh forgot to mention. Going to LFS to look and price.

+1 on the 29 or larger.
One thing remains to be found out about the new fish. Skirted Tetras are quite often fin nippers. Glass cats won't tolerate much of that.

Well, I am still in the planning stages of it. I was also thinking Glass fish and Glass Bloodfin Tetras. But not sure.

Since I may be responsible for the initial suggestion(and I like the idea) I will do some looking on the web to find some cool "artifacts" that would lend to the theme but be "fish friendly" because deep down I would like to do this myself but I know I would tire of it all too soon(I'm a naturalist at heart).. also I'm in Canada so getting glo-tetras anytime soon is not likely.

That is what I have been doing.

I am thinking, using live aquarium, overgrown haunted cemetery with the GloFish Tetras, since they look Radioactive Zombies. Substrate is black sand with Blue LEDs to create a Moonlight effect. A picture background of the Moon with either a haunted house, Mausoleum, or a church.
This is my FIRST theme tank. I love horror movies and stories. I also have never really liked tetras before these.

There is a Zombie Pleco! O.O L070 Pleco. I kinda want it to go with the whole Zombie theme. lmao
