Description: This is my 55g fish tank, its 4'x13"x1' 9" and has 3 inches of natural colored gravel in it with several artifical plants in it. The filter I use is a Marineland Penquin bio-wheel 350 power filter and I use a 200 watt marineland heater.
Advice: Don't believe what pet stores tell you and always ask on a fish forum on about how to set up your first tank and don't over stock or put incompatible fish together in the same tank.
Fish Kept: 55g- 6 long finned black widow tetras, 4 regular finned black widow tetras, 4 angelfish, 1 common pleco 10g-3 red eyed tetras, 3 x-ray tetas, 1 false julli cory, 2 otto's 2.5g divided- 1 male betta on each side 2.5g divided- 1 male betta on each side
Corals/Plants: none, all are artifiical
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Quote: "Fish are friends, not food" from finding nemo
About Yourself: I'm 15 years old and this all started as a science project in the 7th grade (2 to 3 years ago) with a 10g and 4 black widow tetras to observe how many times they open and close their mouth in a minute but after the project was over I was hooked on fish, then a few months later I got a long 20g tank then a 55g tank

COMMENTS

looks great but maybe you could bunch some plants together and also get a few more that are near the same height of the tank i've found that many of my fish prefer larger bunches to hide and sleep in fish avatar
