Thread: Hmmm new tank??

  1. #1

    Default Hmmm new tank??

    0 Not allowed!
    Someone at my local club is selling this nifty wee tank with a GORGEOUS 3D background, inclusive with heater, Fluval 3 filter, home-made light fixture (florescent bulbs so it won't grow plants but it would be sacrilege to cover that BG up with plants anyway) and other bits and pieces for a bargain price. It's about 27" x 13.5" 17.5", around 18.5g. Someone's obviously put a lot work into this thing. I was thinking it might look good with a group of Lamprologus occelatus (if I can get my hands on some).

    What do ya'll think?

    to be brutally honest I am not huge on the background, I feel like it is a mix of two standard looks (just sand wall, and rock wall)

    I think you could make your own and would look better, or if you want to come to buffalo I have a friend that makes them :).

    Btw, what is the person asking for the tank, if its a good price, grab it

    Not sure about the Lamprologus occelatus but you could have a nice small group of shellys in there and it would look good.
    20 gallon tall: empty
    29 gallon: moderately planted with 9 bloodfin tetra, 1 german blue ram, 11 glow light tetra and 1 BNP
    10 gallon QT: empty

    3D backgrounds are nearly impossible to come by here, and if you can find them they're usually $300+. I do not have the materials, tools nor expertise to make something like this.

    The whole set-up is $100. May sound expensive to you guys, but that's an absolute bargain here... This could easily go for twice that. My second-hand 5g tank cost more than that.

    Limming -- I was under the impressed L. occelatus WERE shell-dwellers?? Sadly L. occelatus are the only small Tanganyikans we have available in NZ, apart from occasionally Altolamprologus calvus for a hefty $120 per-fish. And Neolamprologus brichardi but apparently those things are agro as.
