    I was thnkin of getting a 150 gallon and that's my plan 4 my platys my father told me it might seem like they are all gettin eaten but chances r they r just hiding during the day and coming out at night 2 eat.....the 6 inch 1 I caught I was able to keep it alive 4 2 weeks in an old apple juice bottle I found .......I don't wanna breed it they die after they breed and I don't want that lol

    My pic is the eel I caught not the best pic but u can see it lol and I'm gonna make a custom top that locks so it can't get out with a bunch of underwater filters and a lamp on the wall for light and I like the driftwood idea I didn't even think of that.....I'm also thinkin of putting some kind of pleco in with it to keep algea and food from getting out of hand

    i wouldnt worry about the food and algae shouldnt be much of a problem. from the readings plecos would be food for them unless you get a common, but they arent great algae control. if you are worried about algae then use bare min lights (assuming you dont plant this tank.) and just keep the water clean. you could also invest in snails if the algae does grow.

    some plecos are good for algae i recently learnt bns are good diatom eaters., others will only munch on wood, while others will munch on your fish. never assume that algae alone is enough for plecos tho. they do need other foods.

    if you use lights with a lower spectrum (2700k or "warm white") then the blue spectrum will be minimal and so wont algae. (algae loves blue light)

    I have no idea what light spectrum and all that means but it sounds smart lol and the way to go 4 algea controll so I'm gonna look into it and like I sed I have a pleco at least I'm. 99% sure its 1 I looked up a golden catfish and its definitly not that should I put a peice of driftwood in my tank or is it 1 of the breeds that don't need the drift wood?
