Filtration could possibly be as simple as a canister pond filter???

Yes, Thanks. I guess I have a picture in my mind and I have not yet found it. Well, my picture and my finances as often are the case, are not inline. lol


Cool Video of the Rummynose. That tank is awesome but the fish remind me of a swarm of mosquitoes and I would prefer a slower more graceful fish movement in a big tank. It is cool to watch though. Do you think they are swimming for their lives seeing the Altum Angels in there?

Just the tank is what I want, not the stock from that tank. I wouldn't want nippy fish. I would want a very peaceful feel. If I am dreaming, It is a salt water tank that someone else maintains and then it would be just like sleeping on the bottom of an ocean looking at a beautiful coral reef. :) Sounds so peaceful, doesn't it?

Wait, this looks like fun.

thats awesome. this is how i would do it personally but maybe cardinal tetras instead. either way, large tank + live plants + large school of small fish = win in my book.

if you look at around :27 theres a dwarf puffer at the bottom of the vid.

Maybe not in the shark tank though. lol

It is so cool when looking at some of those "Monster tanks" to see so many of those petstore fish that have actually been able to grow up. Look at the Bala Sharks and the Leporinus. How many of those they sell at Petsmart don't get nearly grown because of the lack of room.

Now these water changes would take some time. Especially if I were to do them like I do now. 60% every 4-5 days. I think I need a larger siphon. lol Admittedly, the greenish water wouldn't work for my dream tank. I would need gravel and plants and wood and clean clean water. It's my dream, right? lol
