    I'll skip the 3 gallons & pond because I don't think they'll be too helpful, but here's my other tanks:

    10 gallon:

    20 gallon:

    55 gallon:

    75 gallon (actually, it doesn't look like this any more. I had to put a divider in so I removed most of the decorations):

    Thankyou. :)

    That's actually rocks stacked up, not wood.

    As for cost, the little vase thing in the 10 gallon cost about 10¢ at a thrift store and the live plants cost about $10.

    The bricks in the 20 gallon cost about $3 and I got the plants at a craft store so they only cost about $12.

    In the 55 I spent about $5 on artificial plants, the 2 resin stump decorations did cost quite a bit ($25 each, I think) and the rocks where just left over pieces of flag stone from when whe where building our pond.

    The pot in the 75 gallon cost about $7. I can't remem $4, and the rocks where free.

    So I think that's about $80 total (not including the sand).

    hey, t-chelle, in your first pic, whats the twig thing in the back? i lie it, and when your not looking im gunna pinch it! hehe.

    my main warm water 15gal is the whole natural bog wood plant thing.

    I went to a carboot and got a two toned piece of drift wood worth about £15 for £3 coz the bloke knew nothing about fish.

    The dark antler looking one on the left is driftwood and the lighter colored one on the right is made of rubber. I bought a box of used tank supplies at a yardsale a few weeks ago for $5 and it had a hood & light (what I was mainly wanting), HOB filter, under gravel filter, heater, a couple fake plants, and that driftwood & rubber branch thing.

    Oh, and that bunch of green things hanging down on the right is pothos roots. I have it in there to help control nitrAtes. And the 2 large leaved plants in the 2 back corners is pothos that is completely submerged. That stupid stuff is actually a house plant but it's doing better submerged than my fully aquatic plants. :roll:

    Yes, I have moss balls. But just for looks as I've heard they only really help conditions in the tank if there are tons of them in there. I do like to watch my pictus cat roll the ball around the tank too, it's the funniest thing I've ever seen :lol:

    Here's what the 75 looks like now. As much as I hate doing it, I really hope I find Charlie a new home soon because I don't like keeping them in such small spaces. I can't keep them together and I can't get another tank. :(

    so there not getting along anymore ?
  17. t_chelle16

    t_chelle16 New Member

    Nope. They suddenly turned on eachother and he almost killed her. In fact, in that picture, they're getting ready to charge at eachother through the divider.

    Wow! t_chelle your 20 gallon tank is nice but ur 55 gallon tank is just utterly amazing! What fish are in those two if its not a problem?

    I did have him removed briefly for pop-eye treatment, but they had started getting aggressive towards eachother before that. They where showing some mating behavior before all this started so I think what happened is he wanted to breed but she didn't.

    No problem.

    The 55 has african cichlids:
    3 Pseudotropheus lombardoi (kennyi mbuna)
    2 P. socolofi (powder blue cichlid)
    3 Labidochromis caeruleus (yellow lab)
    2 Melanochromis auratus (golden cichlid)
    1 Aulonocara hybrid (ob peacock)
    1 pleco

    20 gallon is my fry grow out tank:
    5 pygmy cory cats (permanant residents)
    2 apple snails (permanant residents)
    10 M. auratus juvies (going to the LFS soon)
    10 L. caeruleus juvies (going to the LFS soon)
    4 kennyi/ob peacock fry (look like kennyi)
    3 goldfish fry (did have 11, but I put 8 of them back in the pond today)

    Actually, after I find a new home for Charlie, my plan is to move Sherbert to the 55 and move the africans to the 75 so I can get a couple more species to breed. I'm also hoping to try breeding some bettas soon.
