    AA's and Demi's Tank Competition!

    AABatteries and I are going to have... A TANK COMPETITION!

    We are both getting fish tanks on the 25th December (Christmaaasssssss!) So we decided to have a competition on who’s tank will look the best and compare notes and updates about our progress ;))

    In my case, Christmas is tomorrow, so I will get a teeny-tiny-head-start in the competition... Well actually not really, because I haven’t got anything mapped out, where as good all Batteries has everything planned LOL

    We hope to have heaps of fun with this competition and we both hope everyone enjoys reading about it too! <3

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Cool. If a would've made at this thread, it would've been about one paragraph. Good job Demi.
    I'm going to post my plans in a few minutes.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Yup, in the great Aussie outback, it’s Christmas today!

    I opened my biggest present... MY TANK!

    I measured it LOL and it was about 85L! Yaayyy!
    That’s about...erm...uhhh... 22 Gallons!

    Its footprint is:

    L = 30”
    W = 12”
    H = 14”

    It is a really nice long tank! It came with a terrific wooden hood and stand, not to mention 2 filters, a 100-watt heater, a bucket full of gravel and 5 pieces of large dried-out coral.

    Its such a lovely fish tank! Not a scratch or gouge to be seen, despite it being used before!

    The gravel can be easily be mistaken for sand. The grains are tiny and cream in colour – it looks very cool! I have 2 pieces of coral in their at the moment and 3 small fake plants.

    THE BAD NEWS:

    I didn’t notice the gravel was embedded with millions of Malaysian Trumpet Snails UNTIL the gravel was in the tank... Before our eyes, each snail suddenly got up and started to move around the tank! CRAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPP! <crys>
    Grr! Now I have millions of these ugly-disgusting MTS in my tank! They had not been in water for atleast a week! I need to figure out how to get them out <sobs>

    Heres a piccie of my tank... It looks bad, but believe me lots of plans are being mapped out for this tank!

    Congratulations, Demi. I wouldn't worry too much about the snails, they help keep dead spots from forming in the substrate. Also, they will stay hidden for the most part when the lights are on.

    Not these ones! They are all over the glass and make the tank look... ICKY! LOL

    Besides, they don't appeal to me at ALL - Sorry to those MTS lovers LOL :)))

    The water is still pretty cloudy, but the filter thats in there was seeded, so the tank should already be cycled - or almost anyway!

    We plan to add a goldfish or two to carry on the cycle until we know what fish I want :)) Then when we are done with the Goldfish, the darlings will be released into an enclosed haven... in otehr words a nice huge pond with other goldfish! LOL
