Description: 75 gallon Marineland tank with an Eclipse filter & light system... 48"L x 20"T x 18"W...we bought a wider tank so that when the fish get bigger they still can swim freely. The Tinfoil Barbs & the Red Belly Pacu grow to about 12" in length...
Advice: Test your water and do 25% water changes every week...& I mean every week! Buy a Python water changing system, it is a must have item and makes water changes no problem at all...No more buckets!!
Fish Kept: Tinfoil Barbs, Red Belly Pacu, Tiger Barb, Pleco and the King..Blue Lobster...The tanks owner! :)
Corals/Plants: Both live and fake plants..
Tank Size: 75 gallons
Quote: Love your kids..Always..."Family comes first"
About Yourself: I think I am getting addicted to this hobby! I have two tanks set up now and want more! I would like to build a 200+ gallon tank...and also have a custom African tank...
