State: Michigan
Country: United States
Description: A natural Amazonian environment with plenty of driftwood and natural rocks for a pleasant environment for all of the fish. I created caves and crevices out of the wood and rocks for the fish to hide and relax. It is full of fake plants for a more beautiful environment and hiding places for some of my fish. I maintain natural black water by using almond leaves and driftwood. The dimensions are 40"x12".It has standard lighting provided upon the purchase of the tank. I have 1 Quiet Flow 30 Gallon Filter, and 1 AquaClear 50 Gallon Filter. I also use 2 30 Gallon Aquarium Heaters to maintain a constant temperature of 78F.
Advice: DO NOT BUY CHEAP FISH OR FISH FROM PETSMART. DO NOT OVERCROWD OR OVERFEED.
Fish Kept: Black Ghost Knife Peacock Eel Albino Polypterus Plesoctemus Geophagus Weather Loach Red Finned Shark 2 Angelfish 2 Gourami
Corals/Plants: All fake, live plants cannot live in blackwater.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Quote: theres more to fish than meets the eye.
About Yourself: I first began fishtanking when I was a little kid with a mere 5 gallon tank full of goldfish I won at a carnival. Ever since I've just always loved watching fish and owning fish. I love designing the landscape for the fish to explore. I just recently converted my 25 into a 55 Gallon tank, and only a few days ago made it into a black water environment. My favorite fish would have to be my black ghost knife which I have watched grow from a few inches to almost 9 now. I take great pride in my tank.
