Got a new Boy today, He's a red Veiltail, Mum loved him and $4 was hard to say No. I'll grab pics of him when my Aunty finishes using my semi-macro lens.
Completely redid the tank, added some new bitz. Enjoy!
Ok guys I haven't seen this thread so I might as well post it.
Post the pics of your other fish that don't fit into any particular category.
I'll start, with Barry the sail fin pleco! He's getting pretty big, almost 1/3 of my tank! Need to sell him lol...
Hey all, I will be getting an 16-18 litre tank soon (I got it but has a male CT in it) and was thinking about turning it into a completely self contained tank that I will not have to do anything with or ever have to touch.
I have plenty of rocks to go in it and a fair bit of substrate but I have no idea where to start, what plants or creatures to go in it, I was thinking of one of those special tanks with cling film on top so it never loses water. Now I want to go completely self contained as Mum wants the tanks gone due to electricity costs, but I don't want to sell the small fighter tank as it cost me a fortune.
I don't want to spend much on it because I already have rocks and substrate to go in it.
I'm after plants and maybe a shrimp that can survive in the tank with the oxygen the plant makes.
For the life of me I can't remember what this kind of tank is called! It has a name but I just can't think of it. Just substrate a few plants and little water in a tank sealed with cling film.
Edit: I found a picture similar to what I want, but this one is filled up with water. I like how this one looks.
Sorry guys I already have the tank and the sand + wood + rocks and just want to know what kind of fish would go nicely in it.
I have the filter already. its a HOB filter. I am not planing on spending any money on it apart from a couple fish.
Hey guys I saw an amazing photo of a larger tank with just sand, timber and a single plant and thought about doing a very similar set-up with my 60x30x30. Would a single larger anubias on wood be a good substitute for the lack of plants in the tank? I was thinking of a few of my cory fry for the tank and maybe some dwarf rams? If you have a better idea about these fish as I have no idea please tell me as I would have to put my young corydoras in with rams and find they are not compatible.
As I am useless with most fish other than betta's, guppies and corydoras I have no clue as to what the tank would need.
I want to go minimal with this tank so I don't want visible things like a heater, so a heater would have to stay out. Unless you know a good way to hide the heater and stuff.
Things I want:
Almost no plants.
No visible heater/no heater.
Fish with personality (ie: not guppies, or goldies)
I would like fish that will hang around something and not just swim the entire tank.
Pic below of the tank that gave me the idea.
