    AlexW's tanks and fish (update 4/1)

    thought' I'd follow the advice given and post up some pics of my tanks and their inhabitants...

    Start with the 29 gallon hillstream tank:

    a couple inhabitants of the hilly tank:

    This one's my 2.5 gallon RCS tank:

    My CRS tank:

    My 38 gallon micro fish tank:

    Not too nice at the moment for all the money I've put into it, getting a T5 in a couple weeks and hopefully a pressurized co2 unit shortly after...

    Beautiful tanks and fish! What type of plecos do you have?

    Thanks!

    Right now I've got a ALF bristlenose, regular bristlenose, 2 male flash plecos (trying to find some females... seems just about impossible lol), 1 snowball pleco... and 1 L260 queen arabesque, my pride and joy that took my over 3 years to find lol

    Hopefully today I'll pick up an L136 and maybe an L134, still debating those though. And if I can catch him, the snowball is going back to his owner after babysitting him the last few months...

    haha, only have a pic of the L260 up so far, the rest are difficult to take pics of... the other suckers in the photos are from top to bottom, gastromyzon ctenocephalus (hillstream loach), homoleptara sp. (lizard loach), Nannoptoma sp. peru... hope to get some parotocinclus on thursday :)

    Thanks Butterfly! I know we really shouldn't have favorites, but if I did then that would be my favorite tank :p
    Least expensive of all my tanks, most active and most fun to watch... I'm thinking of picking up some stiphodon to add to the diversity of that tank, what do you think?

    Thanks everybody, just about finished getting the pics done, there are so many things to take pics of lol

    it's actually a crappy point and shoot lol, I'm trying to use the big Cannon camera that my dad uses (he's a proffessional photographer) but so far nothing that I really like has come out

    I'll have more pics up in a couple hours
