garbage tank - hurray

well i havent posted any photos in a long time, mostly because all my tanks are ugly.

so for xmas, my brother got me a new 33.. which someone threw out into the trash... it was pretty nasty but i cleaned it up, got it going, and now theres some fish!


i tore down my 15 gallon tank first, which was my first attempt at a planted tank, which failed miserably because of algea. i was able to salvage some of the plants, and pruned off bad leaves, and put them into my 33, which is going to be semi-planted.

right now theres two cories and 4 pristella tetras. i after xmas im going to be getting otto cats, adding my kuhli loach, and neons. if all is well, i might add more pristellas or another tetra or more cories

ok well this is how its starting out, note that it only has the contents of one tank out of the 2 its replacing. and i dont want to take out the other stuff because the fish like to hide.


Male Cory of my breeding pair.


Pristella tetras

i think the tank will look quite nice once the water clears up(not that it doesn't now though)

Good looking tank! Is that feathery looking plant on the right and up top fake? If so, where'd you get it/who makes it? If not, what kind of plant is it and what are its lighting requirements?

I use to have that same plant in my cichlid tank. I love that plant, but trying live plants now.
