My 120 Gallon Log

Okay guys, I've been leading up to this for the last few weeks but the tank is finally set up. I'll be using this thread to showcase my new 120 gallon tank. This is my largest tank yet, with my last tank being only 36 gallons. Let's get to some pictures.

First up we have when I first set the tank up with water and gravel.

The tank sat like this for a couple of weeks before I added some drift wood and plants, as seen here.

The tank say for a few more weeks like this until I was finally ready to move the fish, plants and decorations from my previous tanks. What you see here is the current set up.

Now, the tank has already changed in terms of inhabitants. There are more fish than in these pictures so I will need to pictures eventually.

Here is a list of the current stock:
1 - Angelfish
2 - Balloon German Rams
2 - Bolivian Rams
2 - Otocinclus
3 - Kribensis
1 - Opaline Gourami
6 - Odessa Barbs
6 - Roseline Sharks
8 - Celebes Rainbows
2 - Corys
2 - Panda Corys
1 - Albino Bristlenose Pleco
2 - Clown Pleco


So far, all these fish seem to be getting along splendidly. The Odessa Barbs, Roseline Sharks, and Celebes Rainbows ware all schooling together. It's quite the sight.


As always, comments, questions, and concerns are always welcome.

I would skip the balloon rams, they are very terrible fish, and they get uglier with age. I have a couple changes;
Pair of angels
6 bolivian rams (like groups)
5 otos (group fish)
Do the kribs or the bolivians
I would skip the opaline
10 odessas
8 roselines
15+ celebis (very small)
What type?
10+ panda cories
4 bushynose plecos (more active with a group and i think they like it a lot more)
3 clowns (same thing as the bushynose)

Yeah, those are fish I had already. Everything was in my previous tanks except for the Roseline Sharks and the Celebes Rainbows. And yeah, the Angel seems quite happy being able to swim around this tank.

I took a few more quick pics.

Woot, glad to see that you finally have this bad boy set up!
I can tell by the photos that Fred is enjoying himself in there.

So, not sure why, but every single Roseline Shark died. Every other fish is perfectly fine. Water parameters are great (did have an ammonia spike after all the death but did a water chafe), fish are active, everything seems fine.

I'm not sure if it was the fish themselves but I'm monitoring everyone else closely.

Where did you get them? What is your ph? Their colors do look a little washed out.

Aww, were they old or did you buy them just for that tank?


Anyways, freshwater advocate time. I'd encourage you not to purchase more of them. They are an endangered species and as far as I'm aware most if not all of them are fished up illegally in India.

I got them at my LFS. My pH is around 7.6

I think they were young, that's why the colors look a little on the less vibrant side.

They were new for the tank so its kind of annoying, they weren't cheap either. I probably won't be buying more.

In other news, the male Celebes are trying their best to do their flirty dance for the females. It's quite fun to watch them stick all their fins out.
