Talking 40gal partly setup

This is going to be a tetra tank. I have the rock and plants in there the way I want them but I still need to add more fish. I am going out today to buy more and will update with pictures.

I got that tank setup and stand for $90... Nice deal ?: ) I got the gravel and decor separate.


In that last picture there is a fish with red on the fins and blue around the gills. What kind of tetra is that?

looking good and for $90 its not a bad deal at all, the stand by itself is worth that or more.

Lookin good! That's going to be really cool once it's full of tetras :) One suggestion; you need a background. Nice deal!

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

nice tank,i think a backing would indeed finishe it off for you. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

The other kind of Tetra that I ended up with are Columbian Tetra, Lemon fin Tetra and the Black Phantom as detailed in an earlier reply. -My thanks for the id of the fish.

I am going to get a background up. I have paused for so long because I could not choose which I wanted.
