Aquariums and Fish
This is the tank that started it all! It was originally stocked with Platies and my Honey Gourami, Rupert, but then I decided I wanted a German Blue Ram. Rupert and his platie friend (Big Mama) went into my mom's tank and I got Gorden RAMsey. He was lost in a tragic filter accident and is now resting in peace under our apple tree. Now this tank is home to my Betta (Patton) and 3 Shwartz Cories and waaaay too many plants. For aquarium lighting, I run about 1.5 watts per gallon using one 5500K florescent light. Filtration is an Aqua-Clear 20 and an air stone for O2.
6 Gallon Eclipse Aquarium
I got this tank for a steal at our local fish club's annual aquarium/fish auction. It's home to my pretty little Betta-girl, Mrs. Lovettes, a snail and one fat Otto as well as too many plants!
40 Gallon Aquarium
Technically this is my moms tank but since I help out alot with taking care of it and alot of my fish have been re-homed into it. It's stocked with Long-Finned Zebra Danios, Peppered and Skunk Cories, two Platies (Big Mama and her lone surviving offspring, "Baby"), Rupert, the grumpy Honey Gourami, and KeyKey, the most adorable Keyhole Cichlid EVER and (of course), way too many plants! Filters on this tank are 2 Aqua-clear 50s. Heater is a Vis-therm 100 watt.
90 Gallon Saltwater Aquarium
This was given to us by one of my father's friends. It's a 90 gallon salt-water, semi-reef tank. This one is probably my favorite tank. I do most of the care and maintenance on this tank too. It's stocked with a pair of Cleaner Shrimp, one Blood Red Shrimp, one Bristletooth Tomini Tang, a One Spot FoxFace, one Lyre Tail Anthia, one blue-green Chromis, Lenny the Lawnmower Blenny and one Percula Clownfish who is "hosting" our BIG toadstool coral, plus random Hermit Crabs and one black Sea Cucumber. I LOVE the cleaner shrimp in this tank. They like cleaning my hand, maybe that is because I give them some flake food after they are done doing their job. We run a sump and about 90 to 100 Lbs of live rock for all our filtering. The sump contains a Euro-Reef In-sump protein skimmer, the return pump, and a Refugium with live rock rubble and algae for nitrate control. Lighting is three 36", 96 Watt Power compact florescent lights. Heater is a Vistherm 200 watt.
