45 gallon fish tank
hello everyone, here are some pics/vids of my tank
I have an orange dwarf gourami
4 or 5 goldfish
2 female adult guppies
2 bala sharks
2 moonlight gourami
1 blue crayfish
They all eat goldfish flake food and the occassional feeder guppies,lol my goldfish eat the guppies also.
p.s. I gave the other brown crayfish to a friend because he was getting beat up by the blue crayfish, but it died in the process of my friend moving to his new place.
Be prepared for extremely rapid growth from your Tinfoils. They grow much faster than any fish i have ever kept. They could easily grow at a rate of 1'' per month and be a full 12'' to 14'' within a year to 18 months.
The Bala shark is also a fast growing fish which regularly develops bacterial infections in the mouth area, especially if not given adequate swimming space.
This sort of growth is going to require massive water changes on your part several times per week. Just be prepared!
I have been looking foward to their growth so i have a reason to get a bigger tank but these guys haven't been growing. I've had them form like 4 or 5 months and their all the same size.
Most hobbyists never have the "opportunity" to see this occur because fish in these setups rarely live longer than 18 to 24 months, despite having a natural lifespan in excess of 10 years.
Don't feel bad. This is a very common mistake. Fishkeepers should not wait for fish to grow to get a larger tank. In fact, getting the larger tank will encourage proper growth and development.
