It would be great for a betta with a few Java ferns and fake castles (sunken bombers I think are available as fosters/smith--that would be appropriate) or something.

In the mean time, put the xp3 in there. If it's too much for the tank, that tank is too small for those fish.

from my observation of this tank, it does look a little too bare. I really would put in substrate along with the ordament you have now. If you do but in substrate it will look a lot better, instead of just looking at the bottom seeing all the dropping from the goldfish. Thats just my two cents

Bad news, i though the tank should be filtered a little more heavily as well. So i got an eheim for my new 55 and moved the xp3 over to the bubble. After 2 days in service, one of my telescopes is already dead and everyone else has raggedy fins. The flow was apparently too high even though it didn't look it. Any ideas for slowing the flow of an xp3? The supplied ball valve didn't work so well.

let see some more pictures of this thing! PS. where the devil would a B-52 have bubbles? they only had 1 turret on the back and i don't think it is a bubble.


see it is a very odd quad cannon.. probably .50 BMG or 25mm cannons no bubble! haha.. maybe she means something from wwII?

I got no gripes with the tank.

I'm just wondering why it's posted in a planted tank forum if there are no plants and never will be any. O.o

From an aesthetic point-- I'd tell you to skip the buddha and funky ornaments and just get some nice big rocks/wood. That's probably the nature-scaper in me talking.

Goldfish in a giant dish? Can be pretty but don't see what it has to do with a plantedtank forum.

Because its an aesthetics thing. You can aquascape with more than just plants. And although your criticisms are well founded, no one appreciates purism. Also, i don't think there will be any pics or decorating for a while, I'm pretty upset about losing some of those guys. I lost 2 20+ dollar fist sized goldfish, on account of something i changed, not a good feeling.

Not my style...for SURE. To each their own though; also for SURE...as long as it doesn't hurt others. And on that point, I'd hate to be the fish living in that! Poor things

Hey...you said "comment away".

As far as the bubble goes, were there any with the bubble on the bottom? Thats what it looks like to me, again, she was widely known for her embellishments so it wouldn't surprise me at all if it was a complete fabrication. Also, i think that the circular shape of the bowl, even though the flow was not too great was turning the entire tank, vortex style, not allowing them to rest anywhere. I can't imagine death from exhaustion like that, i feel horrible. Needless to say i turned the filter off and put in an air stone until i get home and re-evaluate the situation. To top it off, i had to meet with a caterer for my wedding this morning, who was 30 minutes late, making me late to work, and then i have to drive 30 minutes to take engagement pictures. Ugh, I'm in a fantastic mood.

Well i wish i could say that i didn't hurt others. But in my pursuit of making it a better environment, i killed some sweet fish. Also, the volume of the tank is 40 gallons, although it doesn't appear it. So now, with the 4 remaining i have, I'm at a good place bioload wise. Guess that's karma for you.

Hey...you said "comment away".
Most people assume that commenting means constructive criticism. Of which you gave none.

The B-17 had an underbelly bal turret but it was more metal then glass or plastic.

Look at the very top, is that a clear bubble? I could be making that up mentally.
