Smile 365 Project - Fish tank style! (VERY pic heavy!)

Hello!

Alaizabelle here, keeper of many tanks! I'm making this thread in a rather crazy way... I'll be posting a picture of each of my tanks, everyday! You'll see the good, the bad, the downright algae covered ugly! (and hopefully some good progress from where they are today!

As a side effect, I'm hoping it will better motivate me to finish scaping and such

I suppose I'll write a bit better of an introduction, later!

Haha, possibly! I'm going to make them fairly small pictures, but if I do run out of space I suppose I'll make a part 2 thread

Also, I'm toying with the idea of splitting this into two threads, one for the bigger tanks and one for the smaller ones!

Edit:

I did split it into two threads! Here's a link to the Nano thread :P It's still being set-up at the moment!

I decided that I would post at least one picture everyday, and not necessarily a picture of every tank everyday! I'd rather spend the time rescaping instead of resizing pictures!

I have for you today a closer pic of the 55, and a newly rescaped 10 gallon CO2 tank!

The 55:


The 10 gallon CO2:


Man, it took FOREVER to plant everything in this tank today! So much glosso and whatever that other runner plant is o.o There are a whole bundle of stems behind the rocks... hopefully they grow fast!

I'm really excited to see this grow in!

I'm posting a few more shots of the 10 gallon CO2 tank early today, just because I'm so happy I finished planting all of that at 3am thismorning :P

10 gal CO2:


Oh that glosso.... someone kick me if I ever say I want to plant more of that stuff!!


This is a shot showing my CO2 actually doing what it's supposed to! There are bubbles, wooooo!!!!!

I was worried about that in the beginning, but they have never shown any signs of being irritated by it! They've been in the tank since early last March
I love watching those little guys, they are great!

Here we go! Today has been a fun fish tank day!

Actually, I'm still working on things... Hopefully I can finish before midnight and post some more pictures :P

Right now I'm working on upgrading the guppies and wanted to post a few progress pictures!

The guppy tank:

Ready to move to the kitchen!


The guppies in a little holding tank

Those guppies a really colorful. How did you catch them all? o_0
It's always fun to have the other pets help out with projects. My dog used to stick her head into the giunea pig cage. He'd come right up to her and the dog would lick him on the nose.

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

Haha, it was a real challenge! Luckily they are predisposed to all crowd in the top corner if I walk by the tank because the want fed!

There are a few fry left in the old tank, I'll let them grow a bit before catching them!

That's so cute! I love it when animals interact nicely
