My very first tank - a 55 gallon 22 inhabitants
Ok - let me say that this is the very first bulletin board I have bothered to post to and that this tank and the fish are cared for with great labor. I am not sure if everything I have done is correct - but I hope so. The tank is 55 gallons, there are 7 tiger barbs ( 4 standard, 3 green ) two red dwarf gouramis, two powder dwarf gouramis, one neon gourami, one pearl gourami, one opal gouramis, one gold gouramis, one pink kissing gourami, 4 giant danios, 1 very lucky minnow, and one pleco. All plants are real and all decorations are natural. I really have strived to create a good enviroment for these guys. I have had the tank a little over three months and this is the result of my labor. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.
that looks pretty pretty, it looks neat with all the gouramis
Welcome to Fishforum.com, Jay.:wave:
Thanks for your kind words Meg and Lupin. The whole aquarium in the home is a new concept. I rather enjoy watching these guys socialize after a hard days work. I adopted the tank, stand, filtration, a south georgia brim, 3.5" comic goldfish and lighting ballasts for 50 dollars. I have had ich in the tank and have read the article on "texas remedy for ich parasite" - does salt really work? I used coppersafe. And currently the tank has a high nitrate level 80ppm + after two tiger barbs have completely vanished ( I originally had 9 barbs - the 2 smallest have vanished ). No sign of their bodies. Hmm. Otherwise the tank and the fish seem well. :?
hi and welcome,
looks lovely,any chance of a full tank shot ?(don't mean to be rude)
have you done a water change ?
i always do extra changes when i have lost fish,as they decompose in the
water real quick,and turn the water,and raise the toxins.
have you got any other readings at all ?
i love the gouramis by the way. :)
it's really nice
