scheming and dreaming...
I'm thinking of setting up a 110g Tuff Stuff stock tank to breed / grow out some livebearers (Swordtails, guppies, and /or mollies) outside this summer (Central New York, Finger Lakes region).
I think I'll use a couple of large air driven sponge filters and have a 500w Odessa heater in case of cooler night temps. I have a spot on the east side of my garage for morning - mid day sun, but afternoon shade. I think I'll use floating plants (like water sprite, frogbit, or hornwort) to help purify water and provide cover for fry. I may have some plants down under (unsure). Also unsure if I'll have sand on the bottom or leave bare. I may also setup a green water tub to culture some daphnia.
In the fall, I think I might tear it down and just maybe set it up in the basement for the winter.
Tank On, Mike-
60g Marineland Community, Finnex Planted+ 24/7, Silica (pool filter) sand.
10g, 29g, & 37g fry grow out tanks, 110g stock tank.
What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg of a chicken.
