I've had tanks for most of my life. Love them. Look at them for hours. This tank is the best one I've cultivated. The water is pristine. Just got my test kit and the water could be better but you would need magic to get it there. That good. Live plants help. It's a 29 gallon tank. I'm keeping "sharks". Red tails, Balas, ID's, Appolos. Also Catfish, Gouramis, White Clouds, Mollys, Rams, Penguins, an Angel, a Loach and a Siamese Algae Eater. The glass is as clean as the water. I keep the water temp closer to 80F to keep them active. I can still watch them for hours.

cool, i'm planning on building a very large dry tank for a couple poisonous snakes. I can keep them as long as there indigenous to my area. Was wanting to catch an eastern diamondback, but they get so big they could break the glass if they struck. So probably a timber or a couple copperheads.

If its a dry tank, use plexi-glass. Then you wont have to worry about them striking and breaking the glass.

All my fish are mean, they drink all my beer and have a nasty addiction to L5D =(.

We have an outdoor pond too and they are so much nicer, we have turtles, frogs, big gold fish, some sort of catfish looking thing and a water snake.

Very nice Aqurepid, oops: Intrepid.

Another pic with some of the varieties would be nice.

Since nobody has called you on the penguins yet, had to go a searchin'.
Thankfully found a member of the Tetra family, called the Penguin Tetra.

I love white clouds...such a cool little school fish. Sounds like a really fun project. Watch out when those Bala sharks get bigger...they'll terrorize the tank.

Awesome! I used to have five tanks of various sizes, but I've dropped back to just one 55 gallon tank now. Mainly various tetras in it. If I remember, I'll take a photo of it tonight and post it tomorrow. I may add a second tank at some point, but I keep talking myself out of it. I wouldn't mind digging out a small pond in the backyard at some point.

Lovely. I've always wanted one but hear they are a lot of trouble and will "nickel and dime" you to death. How old is your oldest fish? Do they drop like flies?

But yours is beautiful.

Once set up properly it costs little to maintain. I just started this one 4 months ago so the fish are young. I've only lost 2 fish. One to aggression and another when I was in the hospital and forgot to tell my daughter about it's eating requirements.

Getting better with the phone:



Well, I got 6 species with that one. The Rams on the left. Loach next with a Dalmatian Molly above it. On the right Apollo and Red Tail sharks with a Gourami on top.

Beautiful! I just love fish! It is so peaceful having tanks, decorating them and filling them with lovely fish. Thanks for sharing your pics!

Once you have the hang of tank maintenance, fish will live surprisingly long. There are a few fish in my current setup that are several years old. You have to know which types of fish will get along with each other, but honestly, as long as you have that down, and keep up with tank maintenance, it's relatively easy.
