Picked up an 80 gallon tank and stand today, found on Craigslist. It has weird dimensions though, it's tall, long, and narrow. Just have to figure out what I want to do with it now!

Nice tank! I'd so do an angel tank with that. Good luck with putting your arm in there!

Trying to catch up!

Well I am back from my trip. Glad to be back! The trip was pretty much awful for so many reasons, No problems with getting to and fro.

Didn't get to hunt for my new manzanita wood, friends hubby who was gonna look for me on his mountain bike trip lost his brand new iPhone and didn't get around to finding any for me, understandably.

So maybe next trip.

Helped my mom and broke down her 60 or 80G tank with two 12 inch Koi in it. For the past year and a half she hadn't been able to take them to the lfs where she trades them for credit when they get some size on them. She had been struggling to take care of them. Very beautiful golden with black markings pearl scale and a white one with some black markings like lines on his sides and head.

Got them to the lfs for a credit, and a neighbor came and bought the tank.

So very happy to get those fish where they could go to a pond!

She has one hex tank left now with just a few fish in it. The projects she needed done kept me over my head and I couldn't get to that tank to update it. Probably going back in a month though, so I can fix it then.

My tanks are all fine, some got too much light, one got none (and no food either I think), I filled them all from evaporation.

Now I need to catch up on pwc and clean off a little algae.

My cat thought the big jar was her new water bowl, but she was perched on the rim and slipped in with one foot. Spilled a half gallon of water on the floor and the table, big mess, but the fish were okay.

Been thinking about my fish and tanks...

Think I finally decided to rehome my 37G and some fish locally, and maybe my 16G too and get a 12G Edge for the Shrimp instead.

And I am on the fence for my Koi pond and Butterfly Koi and goldfish. Don't have time or energy to build a new pond at my new place right now. I might be able to rehome half of them maybe until I have more time. The above ground pond won't really work at the new place, need to dig a hole for that too. Anybody local, give me a PM!

I think it took me an hour to read all the pages here for this thread I missed while I was gone, I really need a new phone so I can keep up!

It is a pretty neat tank, it's 4 feet long and 1 foot wide. I'm tossing around the idea of some angels for it, or maybe putting my fancy goldies in it and using their bow front for something else. So many decisions!
