Here's a few pics of my mangrove set up for now. Some people also float them with styrophone (yeah. Spelled that wrong. Lol) or tie them up with strings. All of these ways work (I hung with styrophone at first and still get roots) but the dsb method sped things up a little bit.

When i was about 7 i got my first tank. It was an all in one 5 gallon Betta tank. "Cleaning it" consisted of taking it to the bathroom, emptying the tank washing it with soap, adding new gravel, and filling it up with untreated tap water. Surprisingly jerry survived for a year! Then over the years I accumulated tons of bettas(I got all the way up to jerry the eighth!) and then this past summer I really started reaserching and got my first real tank, my ten gallon tropical community. And now I'm already up to my nose in the awesomeness of saltwater. Yay.

We always had 10 gallons or smaller. Mostly community fish. We had an eel for awhile that would eat from your hand and the seahorses. Since march the wife and I now have a 125 cichlid tank a 29 gallon angel tank a 10 gallon community. For sw we have a 14 and 29 biocube set up and our 125 cycling. We have another 125 waiting to be brought in so i can cycle it a 54 and a 29 all with what's needed to get running. A 46 bowfront that needs recaulked and a 10. That doesn't include our bearded dragon or corn snake lol.

Yes plenty left. 1500 sq foot ranch w a finished basement. Here is the living room and kitchen. The 10 gallon is in a spare bedroom. Forgot I have a salamander in the other spare. Have had him since like 92. The other tanks are in the garage for now. I need help moving the other 125 to my bedroom if anyone wants to help lol.

hahaha floating tank completely doable. huma is on the right track. you pay for the materials, ive got 3 weeks vaca saved up then i can call in sick for about a month before i run out of time .. if your sweety pie wants to do this thing.....

mdavidson, you house is beautiful. thanks for sharing those pictures.

also the six line is still mia. rd mentioned his swam into and through holes he didnt know his could fit. well mine has disappeared into the rock somewhere. i only hope that he finds his way back out and begins acting like part of the tank and not the rocks. at this point im in fear of loosing him.

banggai is a pig. i think if i kept throwing mysis cubes in, he would keep eating.

the wrasse has caused me to move more rock around. but i never found him.

May have died (RIP) but your clean up crew can sometimes take care of em if they are small enough over night
