    Default CQ's 30g Ghost Ship


    0 Not allowed!
    One of the concessions my husband asked in exchange for setting the aquariums up in the new house was a tank based around this or similar.

    This aquarium is next in line once Tetra Zen is fully stocked--hopefully by summer--so I've been trying to pull together some ideas. Right now I'm leaning towards creating a 'ghost' effect with black/white/silver/see-through fish. Unusual or visually striking fish would be great, but aren't a must. What I'd really like is something I haven't done in the past, so preferably no tetras, live-bearers, or angels.

    Any and all bouncing of ideas would be great.

    Well, so much for no tetras.

    Since I had today off from work and it was too cold to go out, I spent most of my time looking at fish. The upshot of this was that while there still won't be any live-bearers or angels in the Ghost Ship, most of the fish I liked we tetras. Avoiding them entirely may not be possible!

    Options I'm Considering

    Top: gourami (pearl, opaline, three-spot)
    Middle: tetra (white rummynose, red eye, diamond, panda, black phantom, black neon, black skirt), rasbora
    Bottom: adolfo, albino, bandit, panda or schwartz cory

    Any other mainly black/white/silver fish I should consider?

    LOL, was going to respond before but when you said "no tetras", decided I had nothing else to offer. But now, definitely get the Diamonds. They are beautiful in a large group. Love the rummys too.

    You decided your own stocking.
    Pearl for the top.
    10 diamonds or 15 rummys for the middle
    Corys for the bottom.
    When everything goes without a hitch its only then do you realize something is wrong

    Aren't diamonds a bit big and boisterous for a 30G?

    The diamonds will be fine in a 30 gal, which is a 36 inch tank. I have 12 in my 29 gal and it's a 30 inch tank. Just be sure to have 8 or more in the school to avoid fin nipping.

    How about diamond and black skirt tetras and the cory of your choice?

    Penguin, emperor, Priscilla tetras are nice too. Penguins can be bossy so need a nice school. Emperor's are beautiful and I haven't had Priscilla but love the look of them.

    If you mean Pristella tetras, I have some, two varieties actually...the "x-ray" pristellas are very shy, and won't do well with frisky tankmates

    I'm little confused who you were replying to here, since I asked for alternative options to the fish I had already listed. If I missed something in your post that would clarify, sorry; I'm working on about 3 hours of sleep.
