My 20 gallon long fish tank
Here is my 20 gallon long fish tank.
It has a Top Fin 20 power filter 20
Top Fin fake plants and decor
ten gallon heater (will upgrade soon)
the bubblier is a broken barrel by Top Fin
The fish I have are 5 tiger barbs and 3 bleeding Heart tetras
I know it not the best fish tank but i'm new to the hobby and i'm still learning.

Looks nice, I'd say get a background for it, they cost about £2 and will finish it off nicely, also it hides from view your cable running down the back of the tankMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

+1 on the background - I've also heard that covering at least the back/sides of a tank provides fish with security.

Just a quick update on my tank. All my fish died except for my new algae eater because of ick. I got a new bigger heater too. I'll upload pics when I get more fish.But I might upload old photos.

that's too bad. before you buy new fish read up on cycling a tank

As for the little thumbnails, don't worry about it. We can click on them and they will enlarge for us in a separate window. Using this forum's "manage attachments" function, they naturally post that way.
Sorry about losing most of your fish. Do cycle your tank before adding anymore. Regular water changes will make things easier for the survivor.
