Finally! A couple bad pics of my first tank!
My first tank, about a week and a half after adding da feeesh. 2 bala sharks which are camera shy, 2 cory cats and a pleco that are equally shy, and my torrent of tetras!

sorry for the terrible picture quality

nice tank there for the tetras,salmon is a great colour. :)
when will you be up grading for your balas ? :)

theyre still only maybe 2 1/2 inches or so willow. I've been told that they wont get too big in a community tank but Im not going to count on that ;) I think even for the cories the 29 is a bit small, because I want to get 3 or 4 more. SO its looking like towards the end of this year if the balas keep growing I will be looking at a 65 gallon or bigger tank for my freshwater dudes, and perhaps turn my 29 gallon into a saltwater tank. Or i might get another tank for the sharks, get them some tankmates, and leave my 29 for the tetras, cories, and what not, in which case ill buy a new 55 for my first saltwater extravaganza :D

im so indecisive about my pets, for all I know ill teach my rat molly to scuba dive and stick her with the tetras rofl all i know at this point is the balas are going to need a bigger home before TOO long!

i wish that we all would just start off with a larger tank.

i started with a 10 then a 20 and now i have a 55gal...

i wish i would have known what i know now... it would have saved me some $$$

I dont know about that... the way I impulse buy sometimes If i had a 125 gallon tank id STILL be in there with a crow bar trying to fit a 10' great white into it :lol:

hay there :)
well at least you are going to do the right thing with your balas
and get them a new house,nothing worse than someone saying
ohhhh they'll be ok,they never grow that big.!!!!!!
i must admit that when ifirst started i had a 4ft tank,
i think that some people are frightened of large tanks,
and i can see why.However most of us do go on to
have a combination of sized tanks.i have a 4ft,a 2ft6 and a
1 1/2 ft.
oooooooo loks like i have MTS,group hug everyone. :lol:
