    20 gallon:
    8 young mollies (product of my unfortunate pregnant birthday present)
    1 strawberry tetra
    1 pleco

    35 gallon:
    1 pleco at the mo'

    next week I'm going "fishing" for orandas and ryukins for that tank.

    Question:
    I noticed that Aqueous has a betta along with some neon tetras as well as other things.. I always heard that tetras would nip at the bettas fins... do they do this in your tank Aqueous?

    I was planning to get some neons after my mollies are all gone and I really wanted a betta too, but I heard that they cant be put together. Is that true?

    I've never had a problem with it. When I put my betta in I had 6 neons in my tank (now down to 3) and none of them have ever gone after my betta's fins. For the most part my neons are just happy hanging out with one another and the odd time they get too close for comfort with my betta he has no problem chasing them off a bit or seperating himself from them. I've also heard that other people have had problem keeping neons and bettas together though. Guess it just depends on the fish.

    I'm usually the one to get the odd fish though :roll: .

    LOL. I bet that tank's got quite a bit of current in it. :)

    Oh and here's my spiffy "new" 5 gallon. It's probably about 40 years old has a slate bottom & stainless steel frame. And amazingly enough, it doesn't leak. I'm still going to run some new silicone along the corners just to be safe so ignore the tape on the glass.

    At an antique shop outside of Kansas City. I actually saw it about a month ago, but at the time I didn't think I had a use for it. I kept thinking about it (if it where a newer, all glass tank, I wouldn't have given it a second thought, but I like old, somewhat unusual things) and I finally decided to go back to get it on Saturday. It was only $4 and came with a free dead june bug.

    Nice tank.... I'm impressed that it's still sealed.
    I had a 50 gallon in that style forever (it was my dad's back in his days) but it got to leaking all the time and I had to give it up. Plus moving that beast was a back breaker.

    I went ahead and added some fresh silicone over the old stuff (looks more like tar/pitch than silicone) just to be on the safe side. I've had it set up for a few weeks now as a quarantine tank and still haven't had any leaks. Because of it's odd dimensions (14 x 8 ), I had to have glass specially cut for the top and I'm making the light fixture myself. When I'm done using it for quarantine, I'm going to put a divider in it, add a bunch of plants (including a moss wall) and move my 2 bettas and 4 pygmy cories into it.

    What type of goldfish are in your 75? Is that just a temporary set up, or is it supposed to be their permanant home? Even if they're the smaller, fancy goldfish, 18 is an awful lot for a 75 gallon.
