My tank has been up and running for 8 weeks with plenty of plants and I have introduced the fish a couple at a time over the last two weeks. All are very happy and the water quality has been maintained with 25% water changes two days after new fish were put in.

Fish in the tank:

I started with the idea that I would throw a couple goldfish in a 10 gallon and let them go. Then I got into the hobby and realized how much fun it can be. My community is constantly changing as I get my hands on different fish and have to move other inhabitants to another tank. Anyway here's what I've got:
Fish in the tank:

  • 1 red finned shark
  • 2 Kribensis (breeding)
  • 2 kuhli loaches (try to breed)

Very colorful and active tank!
Just wanted to update my tank info. I've added a pleco to help me keep it clean.


Owner: Carol
In my 60 gallon I have 2 medium sized Parrots, 2 baby parrots, 4 tiger barbs, 2 green barbs, 1 pleco, 2 mollies, 1 platy, 1 albino cory and 1 bala shark. In one of my 10's I have a small pleco and 4 fancy goldfish-all of which I will eventually move to a larger tank. In the other 10 gallon I have two yellow cichlids (something-"chromis"?) and plan on adding a few other cichlids.(These fish are bullies and I had to remove them from my 60 gallon.) I just set up the 20 gallon and have 2 cardinal tetras cycling it for me...they are cycling champs that I have used to cycle before. I haven't quite decided what I want to put in this tank...so many possibilities! With the exception of the 20 gallon,(which is a new set up) all of my tanks have cycled nicely, I do weekly 30% water changes, and my water tests beautifully every week.

Owner: Rick
In my 500 gallon I have 10, 17-25 inch black piranhas, and 5, 15 inch albino Oscars, this at first was an experiment to see if the two could be tankmates and so far it has worked, it has been 2 years and they live beautifully, but highly not recommended. In my 125 gallon tank I have made it into a salt water tank, which houses 5 Yellow Tangs, 2 Niger Triggers, also not recommended, and 6 Black Sea Horses, in a tank divided section. In my 65 gallon I have 2, 15 inch albino Oscars, mating pair, one 7 inch Red Oscar, one 10 inch Gold Oscar, one 10 inch Rainbow shark, one 5 inch Red Tail Shark, two Rope Fish, both about 5-6, and one very, very, very large Royal Pleco, he is about 20" and about 15lbs!!! In my 35 gallon I have four Red Belly Piranhas, they are breeding pairs, which is very uncommon because they are a very timid fish to mate but these four are very friendly and curious. And those are my tanks.
