Recommended Posts

Hey guys, any of you into fish? I know I am and I have a lot of tanks at home ranging from 10 gallons to 210 gallons. If ou want to make this post a place to put you setups that'd be cool.

I used to have a 30 gallon tank that I added sand, drift wood and aquatic plants to. I would go to the Wekiva river and dip my net through weeds and vegetation. I would catch lots of stuff like nice shiners, killifish, baby sunfish, tadpoles, and put them in the tank. Even added baby sirens. It was a really nice of FL aquatic life. Sadly the tank got over run by these tiny snails that hitch hiked on some of the plants.

 

I'm interested in starting one of those Amazon Planted Tanks. I've seen some amazing setups that even rival reef tanks.

I have a aligator gar and a teacup ray in a 75 gallon. They are two of the coolest fish I have ever had, and they both have amazing personalities.

In captivity they get around 3-4 feet. Right now he's 11" and once he gets to around 1.5' I'm going to put him in a 1,000 gallon tank.

Oh and Ryan, your right. In the wild they get huge!!!!

I only have a 29 ga at the moment, with a black convict, jade goby, and a polypterus senegalis. I used to be way more into the hobby, and had an arawana, jack dempseys, severums, and likes. I was always a fan of cichlids as they've got some of the best personalities, be it dopey (I'm looking at you Oscar) or down right mean. Always fun to watch.

 

When I move in August I plan to upgrade my current tank to a 55 with all the extras. I will be sure to post photos of it when it's complete (I'd show off the 29 but it's in kind of a rudimentary state in anticipation for the move.

 

...as for that 120 I spoke of...I still have it...soon to be housing beetles... :wub:
