my 4 tanks

After seeing some pretty awesome cichlid tanks, I think my project for next year will be an african tank, maybe 55 gallons, though I'd love to go bigger.... :) I worry about the weight!

Here's what I currently have (sorry, these were the best pics I could get):

46 gallon bowfront:



5.5 gallon with baby platies (can't really make out)


rather sad 20 gallon with the survivors of a red-tail black shark tankmate (gourami, h. rasboras -- actually I saved them -- and some checkboard barbs)


finally, the 29 gallon 'tetra tank' which currently holds only a few black phantoms and neon tetras (and 2 juvenile b-n plecos)

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Very nice aquascaping :) Nothing nicer than live plants!

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

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.

Hi love_my_fish,
Are you planning to keep blue rams? They're not that difficult to keep at all. Mind you, they're fun to watch.

Actually I just came back from the fish store (didn't get anything), and saw they had some blue rams, beautiful -- however they had a pair quite dead on the bottom of their tank and one shy one in the back. So I will wait. I was actually looking for some tetras. Ever hear of Krilli tetras? I may have that wrong, I've never seen them before and I'm not sure how big they can get? They are a narrower tetra with a purplish/black horizontal stripe.

Sounds more like Kerri Tetras.:) They can be a bit nippy but otherwise peaceful.
