It looks Great! What about a blue ram for the center piece?


All things bright an beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord, God made them all.

Sounds like it might be a nice place for blue or golden rams. I love mine. Add in a few hatchets or small schooling minnows like a long fined white cloud.

45 gal custom
4 Blue rams
10 Zebras

125 gal
just fixed
Die cast cars are no good for glass aquariums
2 blue rams
2 angels
10 Rosie feeders

I think you have the right idea. Put a bunch of plants in from the start so that their numbers can minimize the algae. I might were it me,, even place some more plants in. When they begin to take off and need pruning you'll have plenty of starts for other tanks (you know it's gonna happen) or to give to friends. maybe even trade with fish store for credit.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Ok, here's an update. 5 days later and it looks like this. Wow, that's more growth than my low light tank achieves in months ! I set up my CO2 system, and it's working better than I could have expected. I've got air bubbles coming from my plants! More pictures will come when I move my guppy fry over which hopefully will be soon.


Thanks for all the nice comments .

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

I think you should also put in some apistogramma species or blue ram and marbled hatchetfish. Tank looks great!

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

Trying to catch up with you thread!
Your tank looks AWSOME!!
Cant believe how fast your plants have grown!
How about some Bolivian Rams? They are really as nice as they say they are, never see mine picking on anyone. Allot less picky about water quality than blue rams, mine are starting to mate regardless of there high ph and nitrates.
Good luck with what ever you do with it!
What a great find!
