my super awesome tank
 
i couldnt wait any longer to show u my tank! but its still not done, but its looking good ;)

here are pictures, they are crappy cuz the tank light is on and the camera on my phone is stupid.. (maybe next time ill use the digi..)

its kinda cloudy cuz its lame, and the water is yellowy brown from the driftwood :| but im slowly fixing that!

i think the water is safe.. im not sure cuz since the water is coloured i cant tell if the tests are right or not. well at least for the amonnia test.

but the fish that are in there havnt died yet so hurray! im not moving the corys in until i treat the tank they are in now with tonic salt and remove the plec

OK PICTURES+EXPLANATIONS!

my plec.. i need to rehome him, but while i was cycling the tank i got major algae and he did a good ob cleaning :).. but then he totally covered the bottom of the tank with crap.. seriously, and it was so heavy the vaccum could barely pick it up! GROSS HUH?

This is a rock..dont worry it has a dent in it so it doesnt roll off. the driftwood was too drift so i have 3 rocks on it, but now only one big one, his name is albert.

this is the only live plant so far.. it has suffered abuse from wall-e, and i asked him if i could use it for the 33 and he said ok :)

hay,
yeah i like it actually......i wanted something like that for
one of my tanks. :)
once the rock and the middle twiglog has come out
it will look awsome. :)

MegK 11-07-2007 07:18 AM

there is no middle twiglog, all the wood is that one piece :|

willow 11-07-2007 07:40 AM

sorry,i don't know how to explain it
there is a bit of wood that looks like it's not ment to be there
it looks like it is wedged between the two bits,
umm ok let me try again........
not the bit that the rock is sitting on,the bit underneath it. ?

MegK 11-07-2007 07:41 AM

ok, yea i see what u mean, but that is part of it. the wood is crazy lol

willow 11-07-2007 07:45 AM

that's the fun with using wood,it gives you funky looks,
can't wait to see a clearer update. :)

I really like the wood you have in there. You should find with time (and it could be a lot of time mind you) that it will become waterlogged and stop floating.

I'm somewhat concerned that you have named your rock. :?
