Hello everyone! I am new to this site, but after searching I wasn't able to find what I was looking for ,so here goes...
I was at a new local Aquarium store with my son checking out the tanks the other day. We came across an unusual tank near the front of the store. We'd like to try and recreate it at home. I'd like to get some advice if anyone on here has something similar.
We asked the store employee about it, but they said "it's just for display and not for sale"...we'd like to try and do our own for fun anyway. I'll try and describe it, and if anyone could help, great!!
(by the way-we are fish "novices" ,,we do have a small tank with a male Betta fish that we've had for about a year, and another 5 gallon tank with a few guppies in it.)
The tank at the store looked like it was a shallow heavy duty rubbermaid tank-it was dark grey in color. Kind of like a water trough, only shallow. It was maybe 8 or 12 inches deep, rounded ends.
They had alot of what looked like sand covering the bottom, and some coral looking things in there and some rocks. They had anenomes(sorry, about the spelling), some small fish that looked like clown fish ,some fish that looked like angel fish (very small), a few guppies, some snails, some ghost shrimp.
The tank reminded me of a "touch tank"...but you couldn't touch anything in it. It was raised up on a sturdy wooden rack to about chest level so you could look in. At the time I didn't notice the filter system..it did have an overhead light shining down on it.
Any advice would be great!! We'd love to do this as a family activity sometime this year.
