Today was my lucky day!
so Strand, who i met on here, is moving across the country and gave, (GAVE!) me a 10 and a 15 gallon tank.
both planted the 10 has Corys Cherry Barbs, Brilliant Rasboras, Blue Ramshorn snails, red cherry shrimp, and some nerites.
the 15 has a figure 8 puffer! (i win)
now i have no clue about this figure 8 or brackish tank.
he gave me a run down, but ill take any advice i can get :D
Nice score! It sounds like he was glad to have someone to care for his fish since he can't take them with him.
I can't help with the puffer but I've seen lots of info. about them on the forum.
Good luck with your new fish.
Congrats on your new additions :-D
its unsettling how heavy a 15 gallon tank can be.
i have carried my 55 empty, and once with all ~50lbs of gravel in it
but this 15 gallon, with just enough water to transport the fish in it (about a mile) was almost (and probably was considering my aching triceps) more than i could handle lol.
i cant wait to post some pictures.
1 gallon of water = about 8.3 pounds
7 gallons of water x 8.3 pounds is 58.1 not counting the weight of the tank and other stuff
Nobody actually realizes how heavy water is until they have to carry it ;-)
I was in a hurry haha looking back i have no clue how i got it down two flights of stairs and into my car with out dropping it.
brackish fish are great to look at, but a burden to take care of, lol
i dont see what the burden would be? adding salt?
