My tanks


Just a picture of each of my tanks, taken today.
Wanted a pic of my knife, thus, two pics of the 110.
Crappy pictures because [[insert long story]] and the browser is old and cannot be updated, so Photobucket won't work. Sorry.
I hate the 110, its way too tall and no one wants to buy nor trade for a shorter tank. Plants are growing where I was able to drop and cover with some sand before they floated back up. Feels like swimming in that tank and plants don't like it much. It was a salt tank before with the previous owner, that's all this deep of tanks are good for...or bare tanks, but those are so boring.

Can't, the 20gal is in the way. Both are on the ground since I don't have stands for them.

Wish you were closer, I'd snag that 110. Tanks look really good.

Nice looking tanks. The 110 looks like it has similar proportions to my 45. I just went deep on the substrate and the plants are doing OK. How tall is it?

Taller than me on it's stand...31" water is filled to 30" and the sand is 3" to 4.5" deep. Still not deep enough for me to reach the bottom!
The plants struggled for awhile, maybe 3mo ago they finally started to grow fairly with the light they had to live with.

She's a 7in black ghost, so she'll get to about 15 inches.


My Zebra is 5+ inches from fin tip to fin tip, 2.5in body. Other two are a bit smaller, I don't know their genders, but Zebra is top fish and she/he switches from loving the Marble to loving the Chocolate. She/he's totally undecided, the two lesser bicker and Zebra will randomly choose a side, lol.
Anyway, all the fish get mix wafers- [algae/veggie], cucumber sections, frozen cubes- [blood worms, beef heart, brine shrimp] and flakes- [worm/goldfish/cichlid/tropical/?] mix.
No freeze dried crap, I have never had any fish eat those...lol. I have collected and fed tadpoles, fish go stupid for those! Totally ignore earthworms of any size.

That red tail shark will quickly out grow that 20g. By the looks of it, it almost has already.

He's a 3+ year old male adult. He's also a giant evil turd to all other fish. Same with that Opaline pair. Shark does nothing but protect his little cave or section, that's all he did in the 110 and 75, too. There's no reason he needs a big tank when he just patrols his cave like a paranoid freak.
The opalines need to go, I've put them on CL for free, but no one wants them.
Platies are only wintering over, they go in the 3k pond once the water warms up. If the pair doesn't rehome by then, I'm going to put them and the shark in the pond. The platy flourish in there and I catch them in the fall before it's too cold for them.
