Standard 60 gal tank - info on the equipment to come
I have been doing this now for almost 4 years and learned with many mistakes. Take things slow, research everything, and take the time to enjoy your hard work.
1 Albino Frog, 1
Columbian Shark, 2 Dwarf Rainbow Gouramis, 1 Golden Angel, 1 Archerfish, 3 Orange Tetras, 1 Black Ghost Knife, 1 Highfin Leopard Pleco, and 1 Apple Snail.
Drift wood, Rock, Gravel, and High-quality fake plants.
This is my dream....a large tank directly behing my couch....fish swimmig all around my head. I started with a few small tanks but always pictured this one. I work & live in Toronto downtown core. I watch my fish for at least 30 min a night to keep me sane!!
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
