Some photos of my Freshwater setups.

Post by Michael Milligan on July 14th 2010, 6:11 pm

Here is my first tank! Community. Just tetras, Cherry Barbs and a Pleco.




There is a couple from my newest tank (ie 3 days old): A betta, 4 panda corys, 8 white clouds and 3 platys







Shrimp in my filter??? they seem to like it in there!





Waiting for dinner to swim past.

Those box filters are life savers in all kinds of aquaria the way they clean things up! Are you hoping for the plants to grow all over the clay pots?

I want plants to grow EVERYWHERE! Smile

All the plants that are in there were stolen that day from my frog's tank. That is a 5 gal with a CF bulb. Plants explode. I think that I will rob more plants from my other tank today too.

I have too many tanks and not enough plant matter. Sad

In that same tank I hope to add a 20 lb bag of gravel. That sand that is in there is river sand after it has been rinsed and rinsed and rinsed... It is WONDERFUL stuff and I think the corys are happy with it. Tank needs wood too.

My first FW tanks was something like...

- 5 white clouds
- 2 dwarf gourami (blue & orange)
- 2 dartfish (idk the species)
- 1 fancy goldfish (went to a pond, minnows were picking at his fins and he wass to big)
- 3 minnows (the gold/pink ones)

- 1 dwarf anubia
- 3 or so bunches of twisted valisnera
- hornwort and elodea

all in a 10g... It was nice though!

You can do a lot with a 10 gal tank... but I think your fish might have been bumping into each other! Smile

Haha ya it was.

Once I got rid of the goldfish and the minnows it looked a whole lot less crowded. Let's not forget the ghost shrimp and snails! But they got eaten.

I love Clown Knifes. I almost got one once. In fact, I still might. What's the average tank size for a full grown adult?

hmmm I'd say 200 gallons min preferably 300-infinite gallons

I've got a hot tub pond ready so I can handle the size but it's food supplies will dent my wallet. a lot.

lol. they like bloodworms and such, so eating flakes or pellets on the first try will be hard. eventually you'll be able to wean them onto pellets and flakes. Very Happy

Nah, I don't feed flakes or pellets to my fish. Only the natural stuff.

That could be. Just stuff they would fine in there natural environment. I would hardly say fish are domesticated in the sense a dog or ferret might be. More so with FW fish. Therefore I feel the need to treat them as wild lol.
