My 36 gallon bowfront!
So my tank is pretty much done and fully stocked. I wanted to post here for everyone to see one because it wouldn't be possible without all the help and info I have received from this awesome forum and two because I am very proud of it. I am most proud of the fact that one, this is my first aquarium that was 'created' and setup from the start all by myself. When I was younger I always had smaller aquariums but since I was young and irresponsible, and spoiled, my father maintained them...I just got to enjoy them. Now I fully understand the maintenance and upkeep and have a great appreciation for this hobby and still can't get enough! And yes, there are currently two filters running as I am building up the beneficial bacteria in my new wet/dry sump that you can see in the 3rd pic. I even built and painted the stand...yay! I can't wait to get a bigger aquarium way down the road! Hope you all enjoy!
You did great on the stand, and even better getting that tank ready!!! I love to see peoples tanks, it gives me new ideas, and how great it would be if i could get a bigger tank, and then when they are small tanks, i find myself amazed on what people can do with small tanks
20 Gallon Community Tank
5 Gallon Guppy and Fry tank
SOON TO COME!!
A 55-75 gallon tank, hopefully
*Remember, its not how big a tank is, its how hard you worked on that small tank.
Having a bowfront allows even more possibilities as its wider or deeper in the center. I actually wish it was bigger so I could fit all my black stone in there but I can't for now. Thank you all for the wonderful comments...even though I am pretty much finished with this tank, we all know your never done and the kind words are encouragement to keep going! In my tank I have 23 fish total. 5 bloodfin tetras, 4 pristella tetras, 3 serpae (i think) tetras, 3 emperor tetras, 3 angelfish, 2 green cories, 2 other types of cories, and 1 dwarf pleco. I think my tank is reached it's maximum...my local fish guy tells me all the "catfish" are beneficial and don't count against my tank limit...so maybe a few more fishies in the near future? Hehe. Maybe even some more plants...I love to see a lot of vegetation of all varieties and lengths! Cheers!
