New(ish) 55 Gallon! :D

  1. TrogdorSlayer22 Member Member

    So today I tore down my 33 Gallon, fish and all and I drove to someones house to trade my 33 for his 55, because he was downsizing! And I got it, went to home depot to buy sand and slate, and I set it up.

    Not entirely sure what I want to do with it, lol. But it has old media in it so it should get cycled soon.
    Right now there is:
    1x 5 inch Bala Shark (want to rehome....)
    1x Panda Cory (others died because of shock and heat in the 75 :'( )
    3x Kuhli loaches (will add a few more)'
    1x Blue fin Kilifish
    1x Female BN pleco (planning on getting a male)

    BTW, there's a Aquaclear 110 (500GPH) on it for filtration.

    PS. 200th Post!!!! :D

    I like what you've done with the rocks, looks cool !

    Thanks! It took a lot to get this setup believe it or not.....running up and down stairs with 20lbs of water, adjusting rocks, going to home depot and hunting for sand (which was in the back of the store the whole time o_O )......tiring stuff, lol!

    Looks great! Too bad you're so far away or I'd want to take that bala off your hands ;)

    Thanks! And I should've known, I was just in Ohio! I could have snuck it in my bag >:D
    That's too bad, though, I really could have brought it.... He/She would be much happier in a school and in a bigger tank.... :/

    @OutInFront, Thanks!

    Well some stuff has happened in the past ummm.... 5 days.

    female mollies, 6 glo-light tetras, and 3 endlers. Only 1 endler and 1 tetra remains.

    2. However I have gotten fry out of a dalmation molly that I got at PetSupermarket.

    3. Yeah, I forgot three, lol, anyways moving on.

    Stock now is:
    1x Silver Angel (oh yeah, I guess that was #3)
    1x Bala
    1x Panda cory o_O
    2x Kuhli loaches

    Just a reminder about the Livebearer Auction in a few weeks. Dino was a member at one time and says that you can get some nice rare fish at a good price at auction. Who knows what you might find? :;dete
