    Default 20 Gallon Long Shell Dweller Tank Videos & Photos Added!!!


    0 Not allowed!
    Just picked up a 20g long tank and oak stand to soon start up a Tang shell dweller tank. I have my 55 and 30g tanks, both of which were planted, SA and tetra community tanks in storage now due to space constraints. I have been researching Shelly's/ setup for a few weeks now and am very excited to finally be back in the hobby. I have wanted to keep African Cichlids for a very long time and now I will finally be able to. To be honest, a few members here have inspired me to go the Shelly route after seeing what they were able to accomplish like MCHRKiller and Northerly. I'm thinking I will go with all new filters, lighting, heater, etc. for this tank as I would like to keep the other tanks' equipment and such for those tanks when I get them back up and running. Any comments, suggestions on stocking list, equipment, substrate type, ect. would be greatly appreciated.

    I really don't know a whole lot about shell dwellers, but I'm looking forward to seeing this set-up develop over time
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I share your opinion. There have been quite a few new shellie setups over the past few months that look great. Good luck with yours.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Just picked up a glass versa top and 20lb bag of Eco Complete sand. I pick up Eheim canister and heater on Tues. I decided to keep my other Eheim canisters with their respective tanks for when I decide to set them up again.
