Photo Caption:Cowaco one of my fantails, by far the biggest.. but by far the biggest LOVE too. She models for me when I take pictures!!! She absolutely adores people, swimming right up to the tank when anyone is near.. But watch out shes got a far range of spitting water!!! :o)
Description: We have a 55gal. aqaurium, that we purchased from Wal-Mart as a starter kit. The kit came with the lights and 1 60-120gal. Aqua Tech Filter, we have since, added another filter to just pump up the cleaning power, 1 filter is fine but we decided to go with 2. Keeping the water clear was a challenege for the first few weeks, But eventually everything setteled into place and is CRYSTAL Clear. We LOVE our fish tank. It is as we like to call it our own personal interactive television! We can sit for hours just watch all of our fish. We have All fantail goldfish and Koi in our 55gal. We love and adore them!!!!
Advice: If you want a fish GO FOR IT! They are so amazing to have in your living space, and VERY inspirational and relaxing. You can design your tank to fit YOU!!
When picking out a tank don't fill it up with fish too quickly, pick out your fish slowly and make sure you don't put any specific breed of fish with others they wont get along with! Just basic aquarium knowledge really, and most of all ENJOY IT!!!!
