the oscar is 12+ inches long and the jack dempsey is 8 inches. No pleco. The oscar is HUGE. Pics are coming in a momment.
But to recap - 90 gallon tank, wood cabinet stand, 48in strip light, glass tops, fluval 405, 305, and AC110, stealth 200W and some other 200W heater, bags and bags of food, bottles of prime and gravel.
yeah, the guy must have REALLY needed the money, cause there's almost $500 worth of filters alone.
For stock.... my girlfriends 2 goldfish (1 fancy, 1 regular) from the 29 will be the first inhabitants. after that, 4 pictus cats and a black ghost knife. Beyond that, I don't know yet. It's our tank (the others are either mine or hers) so it's not going a unilateral decision
I'm aware that goldfish "shouldnt" be kept in tropical tanks.
nice looking tank and a good deal.... when we saw our 125 for 450.00 I was like well and then I found out it came with a brand new fluval FX5 that had never had water in it I was like ok..... I guess we will take it lol.
no, the fish aren't in the best shape. they did spend almost 2 hours in a 6 gallon bucket, but they looked beat up before that. I put some decor in the tank late last night and the JD instantly looked better, though its still needs some TLC. the only thing the guy had in the tank was a small terracotta pot.
I went to my girlfriends best friends house the other day and she had me go look at their tank in their kitchen.... and I was horrified at what I saw ... a 55 gallon w no top and two huge coy a 12"+ long JD and a 18" pleco in a dirty nasty tank I felt soooo bad for the fish.... I hated to see that... ohh yea and nothing in the tank but gravel and a filter that was overflowing
When I first started dating my girlfriend, she had a fancy goldfish in a 10 gallon...HORRIBLE. It couldn't swim. Then I bought her a 29 for Fish (the goldfish). Now Fish has a 90 he'll be moving to! What a year - going from a 10 gallon to a 90
That's a tough position you're in. They have had the fish in there for quite a while, so it'll be tough to convince them to rehome the fish....
