new, what i think is a 20 gallon

im prettu sure this is a 20 gallon. as you can see it needs to be cleaned a bit more. i plan on movint almost all the fish in my 10 gallon into there, 3 guppies,a danio,a platy and 4 neons, than i will get more danios, more platies, and probably another guppy along with 2 gouramis.













so as you can see, still primitave. it came with 1 plant, all the shells and gravel you see, a penguin bio wheel filter, and a bubbler. ill go scrub the hood now. :)

great tank,
are you keeping the shells ?

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.

Looks like a 20 gallon long. A fine tank, although I personally don't like the aquascaping. :)

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.

I find that conch tacky for a freshwater setup.

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.

Are those real shells? Or decorative ones bought at a fish store?

Using real ones could cause problems due to them dissolving slowly over time changing the chemistry of the water.
