30 Gallon Tank Progress

Looking good. :)

awesome, I really like all the wood. What are those two caves towards the front, on either side? The one on the right looks almost like a half coconut, and I can't tell what the one on the left is at all, but I like 'em.

What kind of fish do you have in there, or what kind do you plan to put in?

Very nice! :D

Thanks everyone. :)

Conger, the caves are both coconuts. While I was cutting the one on the left, the wood split off and made a big opening. I was going to throw it away, but it was a bigger cave and I decided it could work.

I have 3 Red Wag Platies and 1 lonely Zebra Danio (and an Amano Shrimp) in there right now to help the cycle. They were from my 6 gallon. I don't know if I will keep those fish in there or move them to my dad's 29 Gallon.

I plan on keeping 6-8 Tiger Barbs, a RTBS, and maybe some Gouramis, algea eaters, I don't know.

I have been thinking about keeping some floating plants, maybe Hornwort. Thoughts?

Is it a bambu on the left????? Any suggestion about that plant in an aquarium pls?

Cody 02-12-2008 07:51 AM

Yep, it's Bamboo. It was orgnally in my betta tank, but I am not keeping bettas anymore. I just had the stalks in a larger cup with water, and then I thouht I coulf place them in the tank. I like the look.

Stopped by the LFS today and picked up 5 Tiger Barbs. Tey are busy exploring the tank and chasing each other. Very amusing to watch. I will get some pictures if I can.

Next time I go, I think I will get my RTBS, at least 1 other Tiger Barb and maybe 1 Peacock Eel. I love those things, and I have done my homework on them.
