Actually we have 2 planted tanks. The 55 in post 11 and in post 6 that's a 45 gallon that is also an angelfish tank.
My overstocked 120:
Folks new to the aquarium game that are looking at this tread, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. I have been doing this for almost 30 years and it takes ALOT of experience to do this. Keeping fish this way isn't all sunshine and roses. I've had a few murders along the way but I knew it could happen from the start.
It's gotta be hard to keep up with nitrates!
Yeah , I'll be glad when the pothos grow back in. They died back some after I moved these guys into this tank. I also only feed 4-5 times a week so that helps some as well as doing 75-80 percent wc's. I know it doesn't look like it in the pics but this is a 60" long tank.
29 gallon growout:
And a few pics of my South American lungfish
My medium community with a few grow outs. These came out better than I expected seeing as there isn't a light on this tank and it's on the bottom of a double 55 stand.
This is Peachy my old Midevil. She is one of two fish I have ever given a name.
This the other one. We call it the mouse because most of the time all we see of it are it's whiskers. I was given this fish by a LFS because when it was brought in to the shop it was very thin. With a little tlc it's made a full recovery and now lives in my 120 with 7 other syno cats.
My big guy finally came out so I could get some pics of him. Hard to believe a 17" catfish would be so hard to get pics of.
Man those are some awesome tanks. Glad I found this thread!
Last 2 pics may not look like it , but that actually a 60" 120 gallon. I will be reposting all the pics that were in this tread before the upgrade to the site.
Yeah I figured it was a 60 inch. Oscars have a habit of making large tanks look small. Wow man. That is impressive you can successfully keep that many large fish in there. Major props.
He is but he is by far the biggest trouble maker in there and once he decides he doesn't like someone their days are numbered.
What do you do when that happens? Do you try to remove the soon to be victI'm or let it play itself out.
They have to be removed, letting it play out always results in a body.
Well yesterday sucked pretty bad. When I was on my way out the door to work I noticed some bodies in one of the 55s. Lost a Pimelodus blochii, 2 Australian rainbows and all 3 of my spanner barbs and my new black belt cichlid was dead in quarantine. Then when I got home 1 of my Nimbochromis venutus was dead in my growout, probably at the hand of the mascara barb that recently decided it doesn't like them.
Man that's a harsh day. I thought I had a rough weekend but all I lost was a filter
Can you list the fish and amount of each in the 120?
Ok here goes the list:
1 Osphronemus laticlavius
2 Astronotus ocellatus
3 Vieja melanura
4 Coptodon bythobates
1 Chiapaheros grammodes
8 Chromobotia macracanthus
1 Syncrossus helodes
1 Hemibagrus wyckioides ( it will be moving on next week hopefully)
1 Mystus leucophasis
1 Platydoras armatulus
1 Megalodoras uranoscopus
2 Horabagrus brachysoma
1 Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus
1 Pterygoplichthys joselimaianus
2 Synodontis hybrids
1 Synodontis angelicus
1 Synodontus eupterus
1 Synodontus ocellifer
1 Pimelodus blochii
2 Polypterus delhezi
2 Polypterus endlicheri
1 Polypterus senegalus
1 Polypterus ornatus
1 Erpetoichthys calabaricus
and 3 assorted silver dollars
Holy... That is impressive
At this point I'll just be glad when the red tail is gone. He ate my metynnis mola a couple of weeks ago and a convict last week so the longer he stays the less of that list I will have.
The big guy on his way to a new home.
You are the cat fish king no wander you know so much you love them.
