pics of my new 55gal
i just got this tank this week. it is a ten year old tank. it came with the fish. i know one is a pleco(really big) and one is an albino cat. but i dont know what the big white one is. it had a small tiger barb in there, but i gave it to my mom. im really wanting to get rid of all my fish and start a african cichlid tank.

Tcr, the big white fish apparently is a kissing gourami which indeed is quite large. Albino cat is an albino corydoras.:) The large plec is a common plec. None of them are quite compatible to an African Cichlid tank.:)

yeh, i didnt plan on putting the cichlids in untill these fish passed or i was able to give them away. ill probly wait a while to make sure the tank cycles before putting any cichlids in.

I love your pleco! They are the funniest creatures to watch sucking away at the glass. Nice tank and good luck with the Africans!

That's a lovely looking tank you have there - can't wait to see what you do with it :)
