Mts real hits you some time :)




1st up my oldest tank has been home to butterfly agamas, baby green iguanas , skinks, holder for bait fish, was my cray fish tank till it did a houdini act. Now its home to a yellow bass and a bolivian ram. The plastic decor is mostly in there for structure till I can find more natural decor.






Now my newest tank. Is home to 4 males and 2 female guppies(had a couple females die in child birth and one of the replacement females i bought turned out to be a late devolving male.) And a bristlenose pleco.





o and of coures in a mixed sex guppie tank uncountable numbers of fry

Pretty sure that yellow bass would get too big for that 20 gallon long. I don't know too much about the bass so I don't know their temperament, but still might be wise keeping an eye on him as he ages in case he becomes aggressive with other fish.

Rather than decorations, you could get some low light plants (even ones that are fast growers such as water wisteria). I am sure the ram would appreciate the cover the plants provide.

The bass is a grow out for another tank. They usually get around 9" tho the biggest I've caught them from that pond is 7". he is the biggest push over ever there generally very docile. Nothing like there bigger cousins. Yeah plants are defiantly part of that "natural decor" I was talking about that along with drift wood and such. Real just waiting for the weather to turn nicer out before I go on my collecting trips. The ram has claimed the middle cave as his own.

as you can see the white castle is no longer in there sadly my ram got stuck inside it and died :(. The bass has been moved to the large tank so my next grow out can begin.

esox americanus americanus -redfin pickerel

for size reference




Guppie tank is breeding away which is good as the pickerel will be eating them :)

Don't worry about that pleco. My rubber lip pleco goes missing days on end and sometimes I wonder if he died. They're shy for sure!

My boyfriend has a ~1ft common pleco and he hides 23 out of 24 hours a day in the giant castle we bought for him

Don't lose hope. They're sneaky. I swear when I moved my tank, finding that little... B word... Was a real pain. He blended in with everything! They're quick too.

Well at least I'm trying to be positive about it. ;)
