    Hi all, I recently joined this forum so I thought I would share with you my story and most recently completed project. About 10 months ago my sister got a betta fish in a 4 gallon aquarium. This sparked the memory of my first ever fish tank. A ten gallon aquarium in which we had several...

    Hullooooooooo! My name's Mouse, I'm new around here, and I have to say I was really surprised to see what looks to be an active aquarium forum in 2019! Dang! :D These days it seems like forum culture has really died down, so I'm excited to jump in and try and get myself situated in the...

    Hey all, I've never started a tank journal before, and I thought this might be a good time to start! I currently live in a small 2 bedroom apartment, with the smaller bedroom converted into what we call the "Critter Cavern". This is where I keep my fish tanks, my leopard gecko, my girlfriend's...

    I don't think I really qualify as a lurker. I joined back in March 2009, when I lived in AZ, and was thinking about setting up a tank. I didn't at that time, and didn't visit regularly for a bit. Then I thought about it again, would visit for a bit, not get it done and stop visiting… This time...

    I found this 89 gallon, custom built tank on craigslist for $150. Couldn't pass up the chance to give it a go. It has been challenging due to being viewable from three sides. It holds a total of 110 gallons, but the fish actually have 89 gallons to swim in. The rest of the water is flowing...

  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey PT, I traded 8 Fire red shrimp (thanks to dmattbfan5 for that) for two CPO's back in June. I quickly went out and bought a cheap walmart 5g glass tank with ans Aquatech filter. My goal was and still is to have as many shrimp as the tank can sustain and then move some to my 55g. I used plants...
  14. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey all! I think the last time I did an update was maybe 3 months ago. My 55 gallon has come a long way since then. I've done two think trimmings and have taken advice about plant placement. I'm still slowly working towards that that symmetric clean plant layout and I think I just need to swap...

    Hello everyone! I've made some big changes to my tank recently, and I thought I'd finally start documenting my progress. I have two tanks set up currently, a 36 bowfront and a 20 tall, with a 40 breeder waiting in the wings. I think I'm just going to focus on the 36 for now. Tank: 36...
