    Tank pics - sorry it took so long, Southern Queen

    Advertisements
    I know I said I'd post these a couple of weeks ago, but I have yet to get pictures that I am really happy with or that do the tanks any favors - so decided to just post what I have and call it good

    This is DS's tank - 75 gallon angelfish tank. Its not planted because of his bulldozer plecostomus (pushing 12 inches now and still growing) - even with the heavy wood/rock decor he still "redecorates" on a regular basis. All of our wood pieces are ones we have gathered ourselves, and I think the big swirly/stripey one on the right in this tank is one of my favorites. The pics don't do any of them justice




    My tank - 125 gallon Rainbow Fish community - at "sunset" (the timers are set up to light it with 1/2 hour sunrise/sunset at the beginning and end of each day)


    one end





    the other end - I thought I loved this piece of wood, until I got the tank up and running, now I want it out but am kind of *stuck* with it for now because DH did a lot of work on it for me


    The middle


    DD's tank - 75 gallon mixed community tetras/rams/danios







    We are still tweaking some things to try to get everything balanced out and really get things to take off and fill in - we're extremely low tech with no CO2, low lighting, etc, which has limited our plant options and the speed that things are growing and filling in, but the tanks have really hit a groove lately and we're doing a ridiculous amount of "pruning" every week when we do water changes

    Oh man! I love these! I want a fish tank soooooo bad. Maybe one day. I would love to have one with coral and star fish. I know they're a lot of work. Maybe after we get the swing of farming I'll try it out. I'm curious though Ziva, do you have all of them in the same room? And if so, how are they laid out in the room? Like part of the decor?

    Looks great! I love that piece of wood you aren't sure of! I like tanks that look natural and yours are beautiful!

    Thy are coming along nicely! I don't have the patience for tanks, but once I saw all the work my mom and brother put into their tanks, I really admire tanks, especially established ones like yours, even more!
