Re: My 3 ft (30 gal) tank

I love your stand. I like dark wood very much. Great job I don't really know anything about carpentry ... so I had to buy a ready-made stand. Maybe I'll order a custom-made stand for my NEXT tank (whenever that will be ... lol ). As for the tank, it's coming along very nicely The plants look beautiful, green and healthy. Love your loach too! ;D Good luck with the tank.

Re: My 3 ft (30 gal) tank

Look at my clown loach - lucky I have read bout these funny fellas and how they like to pretend they are dear or swim upside down etc.

I knew he was playing when I saw him but I SWEAR he has holding his breath and gills were not moving !! lil turd !!

The tank and stand are beautiful. Your sucking cats are chinese algae eaters if you don't know. They grow to about 11". They are great algae cleaners at first but get lazy when they get older.

Thanks mate, I read that that is what they are ! Damm ... it will be many years before they get that big though. I have thought about moving them to a larger tank that belongs to my cousin. That way they can have a better life.

They can be very territorial as well.

From my signature you can see I have 2 in my 36 gallon tank. I only got them due to the lack of info from the petstores where I got them from. One is about 2-3" and the other is >2" and the larger chases only the smaller one around and sometimes the other way around for a second or two. They are very energetic and neat to watch when zooming around in circles.

That's where I read it .. I saw it in your sig and thought .. "leaving at 3" " ?? wonder why

SO I read up on it a little and yup, they are CAE's and are territorial and get extremely large, after a few years though ...

I might SELL it back to the shop that I bought it from. THe large ones sell for AUD45 !!!! AUD4.50 for one when they are small ...

More pics - this is about a month after setting it all up. Have done some landscaping and got got some more plants. NOW no more sticking my hand in the tank.. they are getting worse for wear !!

Enjoy ...
