That is a whopper DIY CO2 system you've got on that tank . Your rainbows look like they use batteries. What are the dimensions of a 70g. It looks to be 4 feetlong ,by 20 inches high, by 15 inches wide? That close?

Thanks yes 6 bottles is a pain....
Nope it's 48x18x18.
Honestly I wish I'd just bought a 72 bowfront or a 75. The 4ft with the curved corners would be sweet.

Ooooh yeah. I'm loving it. I love Rainbows and I see a big clown in the pic and lots of cool loaches. Beautiful tank! Are those Praecox, they must be with the red tails/fins... because they aren't Turqs? Very cool glow. Must be from the lights. What kind of lights are ya running Botia?

I thought I could see some kubotais in the photo. Those are my favorite loaches. Lots of loaches and rainbows, no lack of entertainment in that tank. Looks good.

Nice tank! It looks like a tame jungle. I think I see five loaches in there. It's like where's Waldo...How many loaches are there anyways?




Keep up the good work!

I see 7, 2 more clowns right in the middle. Nice work! Do you also have a ram in there, or are my eyes decieving me?

You're in my heart, you're in my soul, you'll be my breath should I grow old
