Rated #63: 90 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank

Rated #63: 90 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank - Where to begin is the question.  Been working on this tank for a few years and finally turned it into a showcase tank.  The Blue Ahli is one-of-a-kind...My large Uaru, Chuck, is all day.  There's a good sized Frontosa in there who is best friends with a Parrot Fish...Go figure.  My Yellow Labidochromis is still pretty young, but he can hold his own.  I've got a school (5) of Emerald Rainbows and a school (3) of Red Hook Silver Dollars.  Hidden under the rock is a 14'' Tire track eel.  Doesn't come out much...and I've never seen him eat. (had him for 6 months)  The two guys on top are my Asian Needle Nose Gar and my Red Pink Tailed Chalseus.  I've also got a Royal Pleco.  You gotta love his red eyes.

Quote: Always do...Never don't
About Yourself: What's up? I'm Pat. I started out with a simple 20 gal. setup. Had it for about a month before I bought my next tank. I've done salt tanks and fresh. Most friends call me the fish doctor. What can I say? Tanks are a lot of fun. I think every house should have at least one tank. hahaha.
Fish Kept: 1 Uaru 1 Yellow Labidochromis 1 Tire track eel 1 Parrot Fish 1 Frontosa 1 Red Pink Tail Chalseus 1 Asian Needle Nose Gar 3 Red Hook Silver Dollars 5 Emerald Rainbows 1 Royal Pleco
Corals/Plants: No live plants.
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: Fish tanks are awesome. Doesn't matter if you do fresh or salt...it's all fun. NEVER THINK IT'S EASY! To keep your tank looking it's best it takes a lot of work. So with that in mind...have fun.
