About Yourself: Army Staff Seargent, now a recruiter. started with a 20 gal tank that has now spawned into an obsession me and my beautiful wife now spend countless hours in the fish store. we have 4 tanks total ranging from a 55 gal, 20 gal chiclid tank, 10 gal goldfish tank and also a 5 gal in the kitchen


iwant you to look at my cichlid tank, because i was looking at the same decortions you got...check it out. nice start fish avatar
i had the same problem when i first switched to sand, what worked for me was taking the extension off the intake, this will cut down on the sand that is collected when the fish move and so on. Once the sand has been in the tank for a while (2 weeks or so) it will become firm and will not move as easy then. So if you have any more questions just let me know. fish avatar
I'm glad to see USAREC in the house. I'm also in recruiting command. Nice tank, you should put a dark background on your tank and some tall plants in the rear as to hide those tubes. fish avatar
