So last night I came across a ready good offer for a 125 Litre (33 U.S Gal) Juwel Tank on Facebook.
Tank, Stand, Lights, Filter (Fluval 4 plus) and 100w Heater for the amazing price of £50!!!
The person had to get rid asap as they were moving house and could no longer accommodate such a large tank, the reason it went for so cheap is because they were struggling to find a buyer who would take the fish as well.
Not wanting to leave any good fish to be flushed I decided I could give them a good home.
Fish include: 4x Tiger Barbs, 4x Zebra Danio, a catfish (unsure of species) as well as 4 fish i cant I.D (little and silver with a black stripe which continues onto the bottom half of tail)
Before I moved the tank I tested the water which came back as perfect. I have a 50 Litre water container I use for changes so I kept as much as the water as possible.
I was currently running a small tropical tank only 15 U.S Gal, with 3x Tiger barbs myself.
I decided it would be best to place my 3x barbs into a bigger home to school with the others, and it looks great all 7 swimming together.
The only thing I wasn't impressed with is that the tank also came with a leopard pleco (baby atm) which I know will grow far to large for even the 33 U.S Gal tank.
So my questions for you guys on TFK are...........
1. How shall I go about re-homing the pleco? It isnt fair on the little guy to keep him restricted
2. What other fish would you suggest stocking in the 33 U.S Gal? (if any)
3. As I now have an empty 15 U.S Gal Tank, with filter and heater, what would this be best used for?
