Nice! I just got back from Big Als. Got a heater for the 35 that the red tailed shark is going into. Got some airline hose, decorations, a grabber to reach the bottom of the tank, some thermometers and other crap.

We're going to get the driftwood at 7pm tonight. Tomorrow will be decorate tank day!!

Also have to redecorate the 35 with some driftwood and hiding rocks for the RTS. Going to be busy this weekend.

Sunday we're going back to Big Als to get another big silver dollar for the 55. They just got 3 in that are the same size as mine. So I will have a total of 4. Also going to get the Red Tailed Shark.

Wow, 4", nice. How large are your clown loaches?

What kind of plants did you get?

I picked up my driftwood tonight, but the tank is a little cloudy and it's dark in the basement at night. Can't have the lid and light on the tank while I'm rearranging stuff, so it was too hard to see to set it up. Going to try again tomorrow during the day when some sunlight is coming in.

Added some driftwood and a cave to my 35 gallon (and a heater). Looks much better now. Took out my wife's cheesy alligator bubbler.

Yeah, that's a lot of money for a 3" clown loach. Glad you found them somewhere cheaper.

The Silver Dollar I'm getting Sunday is 19.99, but that's not so bad, it's a biggie, same as the ones I have now. Though they were $5 cheaper, at the same store.

My Big Al's has some awesome Rope Fish in right now. Wish my big tank was cycled! i might just get one and stick him in the 55 until the cycling is done on the 220.

I love those torpedo barbs, but a group is just too expensive for me. They're beautiful fish.

The 3 rainbows today were 20 a piece I'm at the stage now were I'm looking for certain fish for this tank that are harder to find and will have to pay more I would like a few more Parkinson's rainbows some red and dark blue ones and my redline torpedos which you have to buy together and grow or they can be aggressive
Make sure you take pics tomorrow

I'm having a hard time arranging it. I put the light fixture on just to take a look and I didn't like it at all.

This is better.








The little tank isn't new, but the fish that lived in it died recently. I am getting a Red Tailed Shark for it on Sunday. They like driftwood and hiding places so we redecorated it last night.

The big tank is coming along nicely! I had to buy a claw because I can't reach the bottom the tank to decorate.
