John's Tank Journals
Hello everybody! This, is my post for my tank journals... I am 17 as of writing this and go to high school in a suburb of Chicago USA. Lots of cool fish stores around here. I'm super busy all the time so updating this won't be very easy.
Personally I don't believe in writing long paragraphs, because some people who have paragraph-phobia (ADHD lol) like me don't enjoy reading paragraphs upon paragraphs. If I do write paragraphs, it is only because I didn't have time to film a quick video explaining the tank update. I will be updating tanks with short videos, long videos maybe, and possibly text. I have 10 tanks. I get my tanks used, craigslist, ebay, garage sales, etc. I have a 29 gallon super planted and a 10 gallon super planted both with co2 in my bedroom, I have three 10 gallons, two 20 gallon longs, one 36B all in my basement. I have a 45 gallon super duper tall in my dad's office. and some other empty tanks too.
29 and 10 in my room - just beautiful aquascapes. They aren't in their prime now, they are just being used now to float extra plants so you can't really see the scape. 1 of the 10 gallons and 1 of the 20 gallons downstairs are used to raise my fry from any fish I breed. I have a system: breed the fish in the 10 gallon, raise in the 20 gallon. if the 20 gallon already has fish in it, move the fish to one of the OTHER 10 gallons that just hold shrimp and plants.
Any other 10 gallon or 20 gallon other than the ones DESIGNATED for breeding hold shrimp, spare wood, rocks, etc, and PRE waterlogged wood. the 36b holds mismatch fish that either don't have a school or are the last of their school. EX pleco, single species of rainbowfish, a few danios, etc.
I am turning one of the 10 gallons into another aquascape as I am trying to move more toward aquascapes now that I have already experienced the breeding/selling part of this hobby. I am working on the hardscape and will post pictures and updates later today. Maybe a video update tonight?? Who knows.
