dctatts on USTREAM: 220 Gallon Freshwater Aquarium. Fish

Livestreaming the 220 for the next 11.5 hours, until the tank lights shut off.

Still just a temporary setup with my laptop. When I get a tower permanently in the basement I'll be able to set it up at a better angle, and hopefully the webcam I buy will be better than the one built into the laptop.

Well, I can see all 4 of our catfish today. The Banjos are laying out, next to the glass. The other two cats are next to a piece of driftwood. I should add another piece of driftwood.

My husband fishes we have a boat and we boat a lot in the summer my kids used to wakeboard a lot
We just fenced the yard this fall for the boxers so there is a fence that runs right by the pond now which doesn't make it look as nice but the blue herons won't be munching on them

Have been watching the tank.... man those Bala's must be small, I have a really had time even figuring out which one's they are. They are smaller than the Congo's aren't they?
Hard to believe looking at the tank now that you had a week of hell in there.

Thanks SF!

When I get an actual web cam down there, I'm going to try to get the big piece of driftwood framed better, as the Balas hang out around it a lot. I'll probably focus closer on one portion of the tank so the fish can be seen better. I can't show it with the laptop without filmed at an unfortunate angle. It's just not as easy to position as a good stand alone webcam and has no zoom.

Jakie, the Balas are much smaller than the large Congos. They don't even show up as well as the small Congos, because the Balas are darker.

They hang out around the driftwood a lot, the large piece but also in the smaller pieces along the bottom of the tank. Because of the darkness and angle, you can't really see the rest of the driftwood. There are four pieces of driftwood along the back that provide many caves and hiding places, leaning on the rocks and caves. Which is why every morning it's a while before we find all the fish.
