Default Fish.

I got 6 neon tetras for my birthday yesterday, so I thought I'd take some current pictures of my tank, and of my fish.


My beautiful tank. Hood courtesy of MOTH. Thank you so much, I just realized that I still have your thank-you card on my mantle, so I need to send it. XD I appreciate it so much, it's beautiful, and really just completes my tank.

Some video of my 3 babies. Not sure if they're guppies or danios yet:

All done!

The tank looks great

I am glad you are enjoying the hood

What a great tank! Is that a 15gal? How many fish do you have?

What darling little fish! Your tank looks terrific, and made me nostalgic for a minute! I haven't had a tank in sooo long.

Thanks guys!! It's a 20 gallon long. I have 6 neon tetras, 6 danios, and 2 guppies. I also have 3 guppy fry in the breeders net that I found hiding behind the bubble wand thingy in the back of the tank, and I couldn't leave them in there to fend for themselves so I saved them. XD They've been thriving for a while now, and are getting so big! I think in another week or two they'll be big enough to let out into the tank. I had a balloon molly (as you can see in the last picture) but she'd been struggling with a swim bladder issue for a while and finally died on Wednesday. So I'm in the market for one big-ish centerpiece fish and then I should be finished with stocking it. I'm not sure what I want though. Oh, I forgot to mention there's also a black mystery snail and some ghost shrimp in there.

RD, you should get an aquarium! I absolutely LOVE fishkeeping. I'm almost as obsessed with it as I am with dogs. It's so much fun, I never get sick of changing around the decor, adding cool things like bubble walls, and just WATCHING them.

I currently have this 20gal, a 3.5gal with a betta, and a 10 gal with a betta. The 10gal is my mom's tank. If it were mine I'd divide it and put my other betta in there, and use my 3.5gal for raising my guppy fry, but *shrug* it works out. I'd have a ton more tanks if my dad would let me, but he's said "no more tanks". I don't think he'll care once I have a job, though, so I'm hoping to upgrade my 20long to a 29gal since they have the same footprint, and I can use all my same equiptment for it, and put it in the same place my 20gal currently is.

Wow, that turned into a long post. Anyway, basically fish are awesome. XD

Fish become an obsession quickly

Currently I only have a old goldfish and a 15g planted tank. I am obsessed with planted tanks I can't do fake plants or little shipwreck things I love jungle tanks and the fish love them too.

They do!

That's so cool! I'd love a planted tank. I want to turn my betta tank into a planted tank (the 3.5 gallon) and then work my way up to doing a bigger planted tank. My 20long has more of a whimsical theme, but my other two tanks are more natural looking.

I also want to add more plants to my fish tank, but I'm afraid of killing them. I'm not great with plants.

Do you know what you're going to do for your centerpiece fish?

Maybe go for some marimo moss balls? They require minimal lighting and care. I hope to get one for my betta tank pretty soon here.

Not yet. I made a thread about it on a fish forum I'm on, and am hoping for some suggestions. I want something that gets about 5 inches (that's relatively inactive). My tank's a 20 gallon LONG instead of a 20 gallon HIGH so I have more options with what kind of fish I can get. I love fantail goldfish, but my tank isn't big enough for more than one, and I've heard they really like the company of other goldfish.

I have some floating plants already... I'll probably take the plunge soon and try 'real' plants.

Goldfish aren't tropical, they're temperate. I don't think they can be kept with guppies. :]
