State: Michigan
Country: United States
Description: 40 gallon long (48x13x17). My "Hawaiian Tank". Right side Hawaiian black lava stone with slate cave work. Left side white Caribbean eco complete sand mixed with black. All natural plants. (Had cloverleaf grass but didn't last but a few weeks. Fish are now working on moss covering driftwood.). Dividing two sides is submersible cliff/waterfall filter. Small whisper power filters make for easy targeted cleaning/current. Bubble stones are placed where current-loving fish reside(like cobalts). A full-spectrum led light provides everything the plants need, and using a 36" provides darker area whenever fish desire. Filled with African cichlids, tank is colorful and infinitely entertaining. The artificial tree and hanging plant completes the look AND feel of the tank.
Advice: Study tanks wherever you see them, decide what you love, then learn, learn, LEARN!
Fish Kept: Red Zebra Cichlid, Cobalt Blue Zebra Cichlid, Electric Yellow Cichlid, Auratus Cichlid, Johanni Cichlid, Sailfin Pleco (L-83)
Corals/Plants: Amazon sword, Java fern, rotala, hysop, dwarf sagittaria several types of grasses
Tank Size: 40 gallons
Quote: "No day in which you learn something is a complete loss. ". David Eddings
About Yourself: Just an old hippie who loves the peace and tranquility of fish tanks. Currently, I have nine running, ranging from five to sixty gallons in a small apartment affectionately known as "The Hobbit Hole".
