my 1st community tank and some of my lovely fish
Just changed water so water a little sandy hope you like - not such a good camera had to stick it right up to glass :o) really liking taking pics though and i think the fish are starting to get used to me lurking with the camera so more to come me thinks hehe may have to invest in a better camera (maybe santa will be good to me this year lol)
those are good pics! nice fish they are so cute... so is the shrimp! how big is your tank?
Hi thanks :o) the tank is only small :o( 63litres (uk) which I think is about 16 us gallons (been a while since I checked on conversion table)
60cm long, 30cm wide, 35 cm high
Already planning my next - BIGGER tank (but have to wait) I love keeping fish :o)
Great pics! I love the first one of the cory peeking out from the hole in the wood.
nice pictures! i like the shrimp.
could you post a list of what exactly you have stocked in it?
2 male dwarf honey gouramis
3 cherry barbs (1m, 2f)
5 cardinal tetras (6 originally)
and 6 corys (all same species) - originally 2 but I was told that I wouldn't be over stocked if I increased to 6 and they'd be happier, hope this is right.
got 3 cherry shrimp (which I thought were eaten when I didn't see them for a week so I got 4 pinocio or long nose shimp and the cherrys came out BIGGER!)
I got an air stone in tank as I thought it night help as it's well stocked and I clean the bottom 2 times a week - water change once a week.
I like the tanks with plants in the middle of tank as well as at the side but not able to do that as tank's small.
Lovley tank. :)
i like the honeys,never able to keep them myself,
great picture of the shrimp.
You have a lovely setup there Wendex, great job - it looks fantastic! :-D
hi thanks Willow. When I set the tank up i wasn't planning on corys cos I thought they'd all be 2 big 4 tank so I put gravel in. Then when I got the 2 corys I put a sand area in the corner of the tank but now I've got 6 corys I'm thinking of putting more sand in maybe 80% of bottom if not all, is it ok to put it on top of the gravel or should I remove most of the gravel first?
Sand is a bit of a pain cos it makes the water cloudy when you clean the tank and when they dig around in it, but if it's what they like who am I to complain eh.
just setting up to get email notification so I don't have to keep logging on to check - thought it was already set up - must have stopped when site changed and it's taken me a couple of days to twig ;-)
