45 gallon community tank

Still sick and got bored today so I messed with the settings on my camera and took some pictures of my 45 gallon and some of the inhabitants. Finally found the settings that make the close ups come out clear instead of blurry and grainy. My silver lyretail molly wouldn't stay still long enough to get a picture of, but I got the rest. Unfortunately I lost my sunburst platy about two weeks ago. She survived the ick and the salt treatment I did on the tank that got rid of the ick, but she passed away about a week after. I guess her little body just couldn't handle the stress. The rest of the fish are doing just fine. The platies look very fat today. I gave them some frozen brine shrimp for lunch and they did a piranha impersonation eating them all up. It was kind of crazy.

Looks more like a 10- 15 gallon tank

It's a 45 gallon tall. I was standing pretty far away and zoomed in. I had a good reason at the time for doing that but I can't remember what it was. Cold medicine apparently has a stronger affect on my brain than I thought.

Nice pics. Hope you're feeling better.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
