Thread: My MTS storie

    Hi and thank you for all your help over the last couple of years. I wanted to do this for a while and will post as often as I can. I started fish keeping in the early 90's with a lack of knowledge. I had a 10 or 20 gal tank with Jewel cichlids over a year the 6 I had went to 2. Then they breed like crazy. OK two years ago my daughter wanted a Fish tank. So the first new project 5 gal set up with pink gravel and Sponge Bob decor. Stock was platy fry and then cardinals and others.

    Now this tank is a Red Cherry Shrimp tank with a Electric Blue Ram guest. lol EBR was a impulse buy. But it is a keeper.

    The second tank is a 20 gal long I picked it up at petco $ tank sale. the five is to small to have a good community. This tank has been through three evolutions so far. Sponge Bob land. then this.
    100_0978.jpg.

    now it is better:100_0999.jpg
    It is stocked 3cardinal tetras 4 glow light tetras 2 black neon tetras, 2 green laser corys 1 albino cory, 3 otos, and a male GBR.

    Now two weeks ago my wife came home with a betta fish and a 1 gal hex tank. and don't worry this will change soon. to a new 10 gal half moon tank.

    and there is some thing in the works

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Thanks you Compass and Slaphppy7, Well She did but also with the gallon tank. I do like the Betta personality. when we got him for the first week all he did was hide. It seems it took some time to adjust to a new house. last night when I got home I could not find him. looked here and there. When I turned on the lights out he came. this crazy sucker made a cave under the led light.

    LOL...we have a little "wheelhouse" deco in the 10 gallon, our betta hangs out in there all the time, when he's not resting on plants.

    When you approach the tank, he'll poke his head out of one of the windows of the house to say "hi", lol

    Also I am trying to test my green thumb in water. the 20 is lightly planted with Petco test tube swords and Kyoto "KevinVA said not aquatic plant" opps. I do want to add a bit of Amazon Frogbit (limnobium laevigatum) later.

    One word of caution...I've never had it, but I have read the frogbit can get out of control quickly, it supposedly grows like mad. Some have commented on it clogging filters and such. It IS a good nitrate buster, though

    I was just going to ask you what those grass-looking plants in your substrate were called! I like the look of them. I'll heed the advice and steer clear, though. Thank you for the heads-up!

    I found an interesting link regarding those plants sold as aquatic that are not quite. Thought I'd share, in case you've not come across it. I know I've admired more than one from this list -- glad I did not impulse buy and came home to look those up first.

    Riversgirl, Yes the plants were impulse buy but worth a try. Just want to try and leaf out. I will read the link later when home. I think it is what i listed but will ck at store to make sure.
    slap, frogbit might grow like mad but suction cups and fishing line can heard them I hope away from the filter.

    there are plans in plans that are in motion to try to make this better.
