Nikki's Tank

Here is a picture of my new (used) 120 gallon freshwater tank. Let me know what you think! I will be adding a lot more plants when I can afford them. :D



Here are a few of the fish that came with it.....

My monster Pleco :D


My beautiful Rainbow :)


I have a lot of other fish as well, but can anyone identify this one for me?



Thanks

Nikki

Hi Nikki
Great tank! Love the aquascaping. Great photos too.
The unitentified swimming object looks like some type of goldfish although I've never seen a goldfish with those colors.

Good luck with the fish. :D

Thanks for your kind comments Brie,

I think the fish is some sort of long finned barb, or tetra, but i'm not sure which. It kind of looks like a long finned rosy barb, but it's grey. I'll have to do some checking online.

It's indeed a black skirt tetra(called in the UK) or black widow.
The 2nd pic is a Boesemann's Rainbow.:)

Thanks for the info...... I've seen the black skirt tetra before, but not the long finned variety. Isn't the Boesman's rainbow pretty, I have two turquoise rainbows as well, and am planning on getting some New Guinea red rainbows, along with some geophagus surniamensis, and some gouramis. I have a total of four tanks, and have been keeping fish for about 6 years. I can't wait to stock this tank. I traded in my 50 gallon for this one. I think my husband would divorce me if I got any more tanks. :) Are you British living in the Philipines? I am from Britain myself, living in California.

Lovely tank Nikkisan inever realised Rainbow fish came in such variety. Your longfinned black widow tetra is also gorgeous. Tanks are so relaxing don't you think?
