My 20 Gal Tank

Hey everyone,

Wanted to show everyone what my Tank looks like. This is the progress I have so far. I put in 50/50 bulbs and now my fish look so much better and brighter. Its not this dull yellow colour anymore lol
My Tank:

My male Swordtail. He was hard to catch a photo of. Back there is one of my new guppy's.


My other Guppy. The baby is there just above the tail to the left...its blurry and really tiny.

and Lastly one of my Royal Blue gourami's. The other one was hiding behind the rock at the time.


Sorry for the photos being poor quality. I used my point and shoot. My SLR is dead right now I'm hoping to get better photos later on. Hope you guys like it!

Looking good, but I'm surprised you can stand the 50/50 bulbs which are really for salt water.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

The 50/50 bulbs aren't bad at all and it beats the incandescent bulbs, and to boot it doesn't affect the temperature of my water at all now. I don't keep it on all day of course tho. About 4-6 hours a day tops.

Thanks. It was the only blue one in the tank that day so I had to get it. The baby is similar in colour right now so I'm HOPING it'll turn out the same lol

notice on these 2 the difference bettween male and female....females are usually fatter and males usually have more colour....and the females ahave a gravid spot.....its a black area close to the "behind" this is like the womb where the fry develop :):):)
