Please Post pictures of your Freshwater Aquarium

Just as the title states. Post pictures of your freshwater aquarium(s). I love seeing all the aquariums and their "scaping". It really helps me and other users get ideas on aqua scaping. I also REALLY love the natural aquariums, but really, I love them all!

Closeups of decor, plants, a certain corner, etc are even more admired! ++

Here is my 75 gallon. It is waiting for it's 6 baby angelfish. Right now it houses a lone striped kuhli and 2 amano shrimps(temporary algae control). The babies should be here Weds, Thursday the latest. This weekend, 5-6 kuhlis will be brought home for Old Man Purp

Kuhli Corner

Volcano spewing hornwort



And this is my 5.5 gallon. It is home to my crowntail betta, Spike. And is the permanent home to the 2 amanos.

Awesome tank Fishyfishy89! I have several bags of sand waiting to try in my next tank. I like that look! I'm hoping to get another 75 like this one but it will be for my turtle. I took this with my Iphone so the lighting is off, sorry. This is all live plants now but I keep cutting things back to make new bunches in hopes it will fill in more. No CO2 just ferts 2x a week. The Giant Vals in the back left are so long now they are close to 7 foot long. They reach the other end of the tank and curl around to head back to the left. lol. Makes the tank dark for the other plants underneath. Guess I could cut them back but I'd hate to do it. In this tank I have 5 Congo Tetras, 4 Boesmani Rainbowfish, 4 Turq Rainbowfish, 3 Swordtails and a Molly. Also some Cory's.

Thanks! Just 2 48" bulbs.... 6700K and T5. Nothing extra. This is my first EVER planted tank and I am loving it! I stare longingly at the planted tanks at the LFS and finally tried it. It was slow at first but it's doing better now.

A better request might be to use the Aquarium Log section (top of forum) and post pictures and details of your tanks there. The on any post, folks can click 'Aquariums' beneath your handle and see your tanks and details.

Father Knows Best but Abbey knows everything! I once knew everything, then I asked one question.

Mine is almost always up to date... so far. But here are a few shots that I just uploaded anyway.

Pic one, tank as of yesterday I think, maybe Sunday.

Pic two, Oscar posing for the camera, he seems to love the camera as he is always bombing into the photo, this time he got it all to himself... I think he knew it too. "Look at my long flowing fins and weep from envy", for some reason I imagine him having an Arnold Schwarzenegger voice. (yah, give me the odd anthropomorphic moment)

Pic three, one of the dozen barbs... they don't like the camera and, particularly because it is a cell phone cam, it makes it VERY hard to take pictures of moving fish in the tank. I should opt for short videos I guess.

Pic four is Scrappy and one of his 8 buddies, scrappy due to the damaged dorsal. These guys were added Saturday and seem to be figuring things out OK. I do keep thinking that they came from a river (stream?) in Peru last week so they must really be out of sorts. They've coloured up a bit and are looking healthy and have figured out that pellets on the bottom must be food. They've almost stopped rooting for bugs and worms in the sand as they are coming up empty. I'd love to get some little wrigglies in there for them... maybe I can hide some pellets with the tweezers for them to find. Sadly, the tank is too full for me to even put my arm in without overflowing it right now in an effort to control the duckweed coverage areas.

Jeff.
