My 30G Hex FW

This is my baby... hoping to get another set up sometime in spring, but for now this is the object of my affection.

contents:
1 H-Line Catfish
1 Bumble Bee Catfish
1 Peacock Eel
1 Gold Guarami
1 Opaline Guarami
1 African Black Kife Fish
1 Needle Nose Gar
3 Black-Skirt Tetras
and about 5 baby apple snails... or at least I think there are 5

I have thought about a background, but it being a hex tank I don't know how I feel about covering any of the sides.... I enjoy that it's visable from all around, ya know?

I love the tank - and the mixture of fish is great! That's a good baby, I hope mine turns out that well!

Have you considered automotive window tint? You could get some of the lighter stuff 35% (not limousine black) and put it on the back three sides. You could still see in from those sides because of the extra light inside but you would gain the extra contrast of your fish and their colors, against the darker background, when you look in from the front.

Just a thought.

Thats a nice, interesting tank. I've not seen too many people with that sort of tank, it's always better to be different.

Love the catfish by the way, how much did you pay for it ? Is it tricky to keep ? Do you find it gets on well with the other fish ?
