Hello everyone!

A newbie here (Called Andy, from the UK - hi!) and thought I'd share some piccies of my new tank - it's approx. 16 Gals (US) / 13 Gals (UK).

I'm using it to house my Mollies and Dwarf Gouramis, and yes - they are indeed all getting along really well!

Anyways, here are the pictures:

The Tank:




...more to come...

Mixing the saltwater decor in the middle and the freshwater decor was a little startling at first but it is very colorful and pretty. Sets your fish of just beautifully.

thanks!

thou, how you define an accessory as salt or freshwater is obviously beyond me - I was mostly just thinking "ooooh, pretty!"

lol

It is very definitly "oooh pretty" The reason I said saltwater is because the decor you have in the middle is suppose to look like Coral and other salt water stuff. We all decorate our tanks how we like them and there's absolutely nothing wrong with adding something that wouldn't ordinarily be there. Just makes it more distinctive

I'd love to get a hand on a white (silver?) molly. We just don't find them here in the netherlands. Why did I ever leave the UK?

The white mollys are beautys. They usually have them at the pet stores here.. I wonder why you haven't found them there. is there a store that would order some for you when you get the bigger tank?

I'll take my sweet time before getting more stock I think. I'll need to wait and see what happens to my fry. If they all survive, am in biiiig trouble. (only 11 of them as well. Think when they start hatching really big batches.)

I've been round our fish stores trying to find a decent one on more than one count (not just one with a good choice of aquariums, or just knowing about plecos, etc.) and I always look at the mollies there. Never saw a white one. Could be rarer in Europe?

she is very nice, although, in retrospect - i'm actually not sure I would get any mollies again!

I love them, but having kept them with other fish, I am now of the opinion that they probably do need a species specific tank - silver mollies do seem quite agressive, the other mollies aren't aggressive - they're just too damned greedy to mix well with the other fish, who barely get a look in at feeding time...

i'm actually now investing in a 3rd much larger tank, so I can move the rest of the fish into that, and keep the mollies on their own in the 16 gallon one!

That's really cool. Then you can nip in a bit of salt and increase the temp to make it perfect for them. They are greedy!
