What's in your community tank?


Recommended Posts

I thought it was time to have another thread about something other than Bettas (gasp!).


I'm running an Aqua One Aquis 700 and and no-name brand internal filter rated for 1000l/ph, nothing but sponge in it.

6 x Angelfish

2 x Pearl Gourami

1 x Ghost knife fish

1 x Bristlenose

12 (?) x Rasbora Espei

1 x Otto

3 x Siamese Algae Eater

1 x Panda Guppy

5 x Apistogramma Hongsloi Fab Form II

1 x Male Betta who needs to come out when I can find a spot for him

My tank is overstocked to the max, haha. Please note as I do work in an LFS once fish get too big I can and do take them back. It's nearing that time with some of the Angels but I would rather upgrade and keep my school. Looking for a much bigger tank now. :)



Mr Big, the male from my breeding pair.


A little koi who I believe is a male and may end up being sent back to work for being an aggressive little snot.


Drop dead gorgeous Smokey Leopard angel.


And the absolute best way I've found of keeping everybody happy.. A never ending supply of food. They would gorge themselves at first, and new fish will do it too.. Then they realize, oh, it's always there and eat when they are hungry and often partake in group feeding sessions. Not a skinny fish in sight!

So what's in your community tank? Pictures required ;)

Probably a bit overstocked Busman, and geez. Couldn't really settle for a schooler, could you? hahaha. I despise the mixed batches of tetra/rasbora look sorry. :P

Also, to everyone, I am sorely disappointed at the lack of photos! And I'm still winning in the overstocked category, haha. I should of made you share your filtration too! Go back and add that, everyone..

I'm running an Aqua One Aquis 700 and and no-name brand internal filter rated for 1000l/ph, nothing but sponge in it.

I dont know if i can name my filter, it came with the tank and is in the hood, up the inlet into the sponge/floss/noodles and back out.

So your fish only eat worms ? how often do u top up the worm net

No they get Tetra Colour flake and Tetra granules as well. I've also got some small sinking Spectrum pellets for my Apistos and what not but all the smaller Angels will munch on those too.

They only get a small amount of one of the above once or twice a day, if they beg. Before I used to be throwing food in every time I walked past the tank because they would always sit there begging which is when I came up with this out of pure laziness, lol.

The net varies. If I get a small bag of worms (15ml) then that usually lasts 2-3 days, but on the bigger bags of worm (30ml) that will last a week as long as the worm stays good. Sometimes it's a bad batch that doesn't last as long and I've got to quickly feed it off to all my fish before it all dies. FTR I also grab out small amounts for the channoides and simplex.
