my tank collection

Hi all, I've got a tank thread for one of my tanks, but I thought I'd put up another that shows all of my tanks and how I've got them set up in my living room. I have a 46 gallon freshwater, a 55 gallon freshwater, and a 90 gallon saltwater. We also keep a 10 gallon for the 3 year old, but I didn't bother showing it here :) Minimal decorations, and feeder fish, that's plenty to keep the child excited lol.

Here's the view of the living room, showing all three tanks (pardon the mess! didn't bother cleaning for the pic lol):

Here's the view to the left, sitting on the couch:

And looking to the right, sitting on the couch:

Here's a close-up of the 46 gallon:

Here's a close-up of the 90 gallon:

Here's a close-up of the 55 gallon:

The 55 gallon is an African cichlid tank, currently with only four inhabitants. It's hard to introduce new fish into this tank, new fish get picked on badly, some don't make it .

The 46 has just a single Midas Cichlid in it... I know that a 46 is nowhere near large enough for a Midas Cichlid, but it is a rescue operation.. the fish was previously in a 10 gallon tank . When we move into a house, I'll set up a 125 gallon freshwater, and the Midas will be transplanted there, in the meantime we give her comfortable surroundings and the tank to herself, and she seems to hang in just fine. She's been with us for almost a year now.

The 90 gallon is mostly fish-only with live rock, with a few simple-to-keep corals in it. I'll probably keep it a mostly fish-only tank, I don't plan to add too many more corals. But, I have to catch a 4-stripe damsel before I add any more fish, as he's really aggressive. And they're almost impossible to catch without removing all of the rock, which isn't going to happen!

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.

It looks fantastic. I love a living room that doesn't require a TV to keep you entertained. Very nice

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
