Having successfully posted my first post in pond pics, I will now attempt a second post in tanks.

we purchased this tank to be a hospital tank and when we were unable to save an advanced finrot koi we had been the recipient of, we converted it into a garden delight.

we like it better filled with healthy fish and plants.

r.i.p. bucket, my first koi failure, but you brought beauty into the room with your passing.

I apologise for the picture quality but my good camera was stolen last week... I will post better when the new one comes in

Welcome to Fish Lore!

You have a beautiful tank. I'm laughing to myself at the thought of a 90g tank being a hospital tank. To me that's huge, but I guess it's small compared to a pond.

yes, I suppose it is a bit big for a hospital tank, but as my wife just said... I don't do things by halves.

thank you all for the welcome.

I shall post contents of tank as I take inventory (the bleedin' tetras are breeding so fast as to be almost uncountable)

Welcome to Fishlore! I'm so sorry you lost your koi.

Your tank looks fabulous! Your rainbow shark looks so happy. The koi's loss definitely brought beauty into your home.

Now you've done it. You've gone and made me entirely jealous of that tank..... which looks exactly the way I'd like my tanks to look..... I may have to hurt you.

Y'know, if you'd kept that as a hospital tank, that sucker's big enough that you would have been able to name each wing. Sheesh.....

Looks cool, I'm assuming the 1500 gallon is a pond if it isn't that's huge. Great looking 90 gallon pictures, wish I could have one.

yes, the 1500 is a pond (pics in pond section). as to the size of the tank... I was trying to have it big enough for an 18" koi (forward planning)

With that size a koi you might be better off with a square display tank or a kiddie pool and a canister filter to give him the most lateral swim space. Being used to have several feet of swim space in one direction a tank wouldn't be the same.

Sorry to hear about your koi.

When I first read the post I was thinking "this post must actually be about a smaller hospital tank for fish in the 90 gallon". I was shocked to learn that the 90G was actually intended to be the hospital! My biggest tank is just a little bigger than HALF the size of your intended hospital tank. LOL So envious! ;D
