freshwater fish - carassius auratus - oranda goldfish stocking in 55 gallons tank - I have almost "40" tropical fish in my tank, but is my dude introducing.... "BULLWINKLE" one of the coolest LionHeads I got. plus he cleans up as much as he messes up!
freshwater fish - kryptopterus bicirrhis - ghost glass cat stocking in 55 gallons tank - Glass Cats AKA (kryptopterus bicirrhis & k. minor)
fish tank picture - the deconstruction of Fish Land 1, and when i say seperating different color gravel sucks belive-u-me!!! maybe thats where the idea of using the window screen and sand came from. live and learn
fish tank picture - a not so good pic of how the 55 used to look; white gravel,skimmer setup and all of the plants I own.
fish tank picture - In my experience, when dealing with SAND slow and steady is the way to go. so slow in fact, I left the water at this height for about 30 minutes to let the sand settle. and that was after i rinsed and skimmed it in a bucket over and over and over again.
fish tank picture - Light's off, thanks to my girl for the nice camera, it takes goooood pics.
fish tank picture - Light's on
fish tank picture - more of the build,deciding driftwood and gravel placement,also note the use of the window screen mesh...i figured i'll give it a shot.
fish tank picture - Yep!...all the crap! and the 2-10gallons underneath the 55. the stand is real basic but it affords me MORE space, unlike the wood or furniture style.
fish tank picture - one of the final steps before adding (home depot playground) sand.water and construction time of important thing i tried was using window screen under both gravel islands which helps if i want to pick up all of the gravel at once to do a scene change ...if you look close it can be seen under the river rock. plus it keeps the gravel in its place...more pics on the way!!!
