State: Florida
Country: United States
Description: 28 gallon rectangular freshwater tank, *new* sand bottom(sand is easier to clean mess off of). I have a mixture of faux and live plants, rocks I have found in our local area, and fish I have caught. 1 Spotted Sunfish(female?), 1 Bullhead catfish(about 4-5"), 1 Razorback musk turtle, 1 River Cooter, both about 1 1/2 yrs. old. I use Tetra brand equiptment and Aquaculture, the normal brands. 1 30 gallon Carbon filter(Coal), and a cheap clamp light with a 60 watt bulb, for heating/lighting. I also use bricks for Decor in the tank, as many houses have crumbled near the rivers, creeks, and bluffs I explore. What the turtles don't eat, the fish eat. What they don't eat, the Catfish eats. If he dosen't eat it, the Crawfish will, so various animals are handy ;)
Advice: Start small! Get a five or ten gallon, and stock your tank with Livebearers(Mollies, Platys, Guppies, Killifish, Mosquitofish, etc.) as they are hardy critters that can withstand falls/rises in temperature, underfeeding, overcrowding, etc.(though you should NOT do that to them!). Sand bottoms are easy to clean, and I bet they feel better to the fish, but don't use TOO MUCH sand!
Fish Kept: ...everything from Sunfish to Waterdogs that lives in NW Florida or South Alabama!
Corals/Plants: ...*shrugs* I have some wild hair grass...and lily pads...
Tank Size: 28 gallons
Quote: "Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups."
About Yourself: Stupid little Gorillaz(chyeah!) fan in NW Florida. We have a pond in out backyard, and we stocked it with Mosquitofish(second chyeah!). I was tempted to keep some, and was pestered even more when the Pensacola Fair came around...all those poor little Comet Goldfish :U !!!
