How did you get the "fog" effect?

that's incredible! why did you let your bf tear it down?

Ticklemebink 04-02-2008 07:35 PM

well first off... thank you!!!! an why i let him tear it down... lol....i figured it was his money that paid for it to be build when he asked me to build it so when he wanted it down.. it was his call i guess lol
its a 125 gallon tank which is mine. it was heartbreaking cus i put so much work into it. the fog is a simple fogger we got for like 20-30 bucks at our LFS. Im new here so im assuming LFS means local fish store lol
but we had a tree frog in there.. a black n red frog, 4 different lil turtles, silver dollars, albino shark, catfish thingy, 2 other silver fish, 2 angel fish and guppies. i was lookin for a lizard to put in there since the orchids and tropical plants were loving it in there. ive always had bad luck with orchids till this tank deal.
we had a lil ich issue in the tank which i cleared up. i was about to get some cichlids in there but we moved the animals into a 20 gallon tank which i made a beach mounted on pebbles. i feel bad cus i built them a whole world and took it away from them. but the 20 gallon isnt that bad. we lost many of the fish to ich so they are happy now since there arent to many fish in the smal area. the frogs catch the crickets alot easier now also and i have 2 prego guppies so its will be easier to check that out.. if the shark doesnt eat the eggs first.

turtle!! so cute

u didnt put them in the 20 gallon too did u?

that tank was a perfect turtle sized tank

Ticklemebink 04-03-2008 02:55 PM

yea i have them in the 20 gallon now.. they are tiny lil ones and all they doo is chill out on the floating island until its time to eat. they ofcourse were more active in the big tank with a whole world to explore but they are happy i think. they each have their special spots where they hang out with a leg up in the air :-)
