Pics from my 55G
 
Well im a first time poster long time reader of this forum. I figured id make my introduction with pictures of my 55 gallon tank.

I started off the year with a 20 gallon and quickly upgraded to the 55 gallon by the beginning of June. By the end of June the tank was cycled and the fun hasn't stopped.:lol: I also took the 20g tank and set it up for my sister in law with 3 small african cichlids.

In the 55g tank their are,

2 Bala sharks
2 Rosy Barbs
2 scissor tail Rasboras
1 Pictus cat
and 1 red tail shark.

I just picked up the RTS earlier this week. The poor thing was housed with some nasty cichlids so i'm hoping now that he's in a happier home he will color up very soon. He has been very very peaceful and happy since I picked him up. Anyways on to the pics

Bala sharks do get big. They reach a size of 14-16 inches. If you wanna keep these guys around, you might want to get a bigger tank.
