Resurecting rope fish paradise


After almost all the fish died and the glass separated, I am working back to having rope fish again. My plants took a beating but they are bouncing back.

Wow this looks like an awesome tank for ropefish! It will look really nice seeing them swim around in there.

I wanted to keep my ropefish in my 60g originally but worried about them breaking the stem plants.

One month after fish were introduced. My three Rope fish are thriving and often show lumps in their bodies indicating the consumption of at least a few of the hundred or so guppies residing in the tank. My Java fern has excesive beard algea and all the old leaves appear dead or dying, although some new growth has shown up. I am amazed at the way my plants have rebounded from the 6 months abandonded in an old 30 gal.

Before and after trimming pics

Plus a current pic of my home made aquarium stand.

Luongo the kitchen 5 gallon resident.

The breeder tank.

My next project will be to redo the breeder tank, kicking the colored gravel for river gravel and changing the plants to some favorites from the Rope fish tank.

Two month photo. I am concerned that my red dwarf lily has detatched from its bulb. Any predictions?

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!

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.
