Submitted By: Brian on
Photo Caption: My fish habitat. 55g. I wanted it to look more natural to a real environment and not overly designed. Although it wasn't meant to mimic any realistic environment. I wanted to try to expand the space for the fish and try to make it so there were many things to swim around and varied locations for them. I took wood from the ohio river for the vertical pieces and screwed them to thick plexi which is under the rocks and couple of different kind of plants. Its currently hads 2 golden gourmamis, 5 glass fish, cori catfish, red tail shark, bushy nose pleco, and a zebra danio (my first fish from two years ago!) Just today i set up CO2 for the tank. I'm excited cause i will be able to get some plants i have wanted to get so it may change quite a bit soon.
