My 600 gallon Rainbow fish Community Tank
 
I am new to the tropical fish keeping website, but I have used it in the past to get info, so I decided to join and maybe share some the incite I may have gained over the years with those on tropical fish keeping site. My show tank is a large one with dimensions of 8Ft Long X 4Ft Tall X 3FT Deep well over 600 gallons and over 4000 lbs, with over a hundred Juvenile fish; Bosemani,Aru II,Madagascar, Parkinsoni, triasciata "Goyder river", Giant Danios,Tiger barbs, Albino Tiger barbs, A family of Magenta Mystery Snails;Etc. Having a great time!

You can view an eleven minute video of my tank on YouTube/ I hope you enjoy!:-)

Very nice! With it being 4 ft tall isn't maintenance a bit of a pain?

Thank you; I use a ladder and I climb in to do plant maintenance, and all my maint. equipment is 3ft long. I do get some exercise periodically.

You climb into the tank with all those fish and do plant maintance?! That is so awesome! I wish I had a tank big enough to do that.

It's so beautiful! Wow, what fun to have such a tank. Is the second half on the tank not lit? It looks like it goes to a darker section.

I do 75% water change each month and when I do it I climb in and clean the acrylic walls, add substrate fertilizer, do my plant maintenance and the fish nibble at my legs while I do it; it feels scary at first then it feels pretty good. I have a ball. The dark areas are wide open and the fish go there daily and hover and go into the driftwood. I am going to add more anubias and java ferns and other low-light plants at the boundary areas as soon as they arrive and then I will video them for you guys. Thanks
