About Yourself: A little less than a year ago I decided to buy a 10 gallon tank for my wife because she used to have african dwarf frogs and liked them. So I decided to get her a tank for them and add some fish. One thing led to another and one tank led to another and now I have eight tanks providing me with over 300 gallons of freshwater fun. By the way i want to add that this tank is a combined effort of my wife and I. We do this together and we really enjoy it. I recommend it to any married couple as a means of bringing you closer together. Now if we could just find more room in our house for another tank. Just kidding..... Or am I?


Thank you for your nice comments. Very hard to explain how we did it. Short answer is styrofoam, quickcrete, and non-toxic sealant. We had to attach it to background because it floats. We also have caves in the background where we can see them in the background. They have been doing well for over a year and are breeding. fish avatar
