Thanks a lot steeler, I'm going with 80 then. (Kinda a lucky number here)
BTW: Would red bellied piranhas be a good idea instead? I found them online for way less than the tetras and I wouldn't be...
Thanks a lot for the answers, both look like great fish to keep.
But the bucktooth seems to be just the mean little bugger I would love to have ;)
Any ideas how many of them I can keep? From what...
after I have finally decided on the sump I'm getting, I'm ready to stock that thing :D
The tank is ~5 feet long and ~20 inch high (water-filled inside).
I'm not going to put any plants in...
Hey guys and gals,
I haven't been here for a while. I've moved my ~300 liter tank to our new office and now want to set-up it with a sump.
What size would you recommend? Will 10% of the size be...
The guys over at the MFK forum mentioned I should get a buddy for the micropeltes so he might be more comfortable and not so shy, so the last time I went fishing I took a Channa Argus home for the...
I wouldn't go for a prefilter in a pond, they clog too easy. Either get a plastic cage for the pump or one of those protection bags.
The manufacturer won't give me anything. Customer protection doesn't exist here yet. But everything is cheap here ;) The 110 gallon tank and stand together cost me about what Petco charges in the...
Don't cut the numbers too close.
You can't overdo the filtering, get the biggest one your budget allows.
I have two pond canister filters for my 110 gallon tank, which together are rated for...
More Snakehead pics.
Ok, I got some root tabs and a CO2 system. I hope the plants will be OK.
And I build an artificial cover using fake plant leaves.
I only got a few problems right now.
1. The water...
Thanks for the reply Lady Hobbs, I'm going to get the tabs first thing tomorrow. Which plants would be suitable for growing in direct sunlight? They should grow pretty high if possible.
I just finished my new tank and planted it a little. The plants are in the tank for about a week now and are slowly turning brown and losing leaves.
I'm using liquid fertilizer and...
What did break? It is kinda difficult to see in the pic. Did the glass pull apart or did only the black plastic get lose? If it's only the plastic you will be fine. If the glass pulled apart you can...
I'm planning on getting some snails for my 110g tank to keep the sand clean from algae and leftover food. Any ideas on how many snails I should get?
Which snails will do the job best?
Isn't a snakehead a "natural" fish too? They aren't banned here.
And finally pictures of the finished tank.
Then I cut out the background and stick in on with double sided tape. I used a "seascape", because I think it looks more natural than black....
First I had to build the intake and outlet for the tank. I used PVC pipes with 32mm diameter and glued them together. (I used a large diameter to move lots of water without blowing the fish out of...
So, I finally got around building a new home for my juvenile Giant Snakehead.
Took me a while and I had to make some changes and get the pump replaced because of a leak.
That's all the stuff I...
BTW: Will it clean the water nicely if I suck the water in at the top from both sides and pump it back in through the gravel?
If I'll use two canister filters can I connect them so that the water...
I just purchased a Spotted Gar and a Giant Snakehead.
I'm going to pick-up my new tank tomorrow afternoon (~180 gallon, 1.5m long)
Now I'm not sure about the way to setup...
today while cleaning my canister filter I discovered thousands of mosquito larvae inside the sponges. Any idea how to get rid of them permanently?
Most of them were still alive and...

I'm feeding it Shrimp now, which for some reason the Oscars don't like as much as pork, so the croc has a better chance finishing them.
The main problem is not the size, but the fact that the...

Thank you all so much for your comments. I'm really glad you like my pond.
I finally had some time to make more pictures:
