Decided to start a proper tank journal on one thread, instead of making several separate posts every time something new happens! This thread is documenting V2 of Aquaria Nationale! (Sadly, all the original members of my V1 tank of guppies sadly passed from a crazy columnaris outbreak and some internal parasite that I was never able to identify.)

pH:6.9-7.2
Temperature: 78 F

Hardscape Used:

Sculpted Wonderstone
2 slabs of Utah Ice

Substrate Used: CaribSea "Samurai Soil" 9LB. mixed with 1lb of TopFin Sand Substrate
Filter: Aquarium Solutions "Mini Bacto-Surge" Sponge Filter Kit
Air Pump: Aqua-Culture 5-15G Air Pump

Tank inhabitants:


  • 2 mystery snails (one albino and one black)
  • 1 zebra nerite snail
  • MANY guppy fry
  • 15 total guppies:
    • 1 blue moscow MALE
    • 2 yellow moscow MALES
    • 1 yellow moscow FEMALE
    • 2 dumbo santa MALES
    • 6 assorted fancy FEMALES
    • 2 cobra tiger MALES
    • 1 black phantom MALE
(YES, I know I'm a tad overstocked)
(YES, I know my female:male ratio in my tank is WAAAAAAAY off)

Plants in my tank:


  • Java Fern
  • Dwarf Saggitarius
  • Rotala Green
  • Water Sprite
  • Anubius Subulata
  • Anubius Nana
  • Pennywort
  • Dwarf Hairgrass

Sadly, we lost a breeding (and pregnant) female to an internal parasite (that has been luckily neutralized in my tank as of a few days ago)...

We lost one of my tiger cobra guppies. Poor thing was unrecognizable by the time I realized it was missing...
