Strange Mebbid! Haha. My 65 hex was purchased in 1981 and still has all the original seals. Maybe you'll be so lucky too

Thoughts?

You have been switching things around a lot. I would keep the Cories and add a few of the Julii to the group. Trade in Platties. Keep the Guppy producers if you think trading them in periodically can get you some credit towards things you would rather have.

Also maybe try and plan a stock list for the tank using aqadvisor. Then you can add and subtract without having to take them to the lfs.

Remember to QT.

Sounds special - like it should be a nano fish tank or Shrimp... or Dwarf Crayfish pair. In case you wanted any ideas, or a trio of Green snakeskin Guppies, it probably had Delta tail guppies back in the day!

Sent off a raok package.

Having a crazy long work day today so not too much fish fun.

Rock Flower Anemone in the SW tank is still looking saggy. The other one looks perfect, almost like it is smiling even. But it is on top of the rocks and didn't go and hide...

Had TT and BV shrimp coming over to my arm and hand when I was taking out the plants today, that was cute. One of the TT was crawling on my hand and fingers while I was moving over the MTS. Was concerned I was gonna pinch him!

Apparently she kept a telescope goldfish named bubbles in it

No such luck. This tank needs some loving.

Did i hear something about under gravel filters? This one is over 30 years old!

Hah mine came with one too! It crumbled when I pulled it from the tank. I would do some measurements, i think that could be bigger than 30 gallons. My 65 is 24" from flat panel to flat panel, like 28" point to point and 30.5" tall.

Pygmy cories!! (Squee!) I got six, they're adorable, as are my new RCS. Super excited for them all to grow up and go in my big tank!

It's 18" pane to pane and 24" tall.

I am having a problem. Right now, in my bedroom there is a tank that is a 20g high. Hanging over that tank is a light powerful enough for a reef. In that 20g I currently have plants, a betta, a ton of neocaradina shrimp, and some neon tetras.

Here are my options:

1 - Ditch the 20g and replace it with my hex tank. Potentially putting an angel or two in there and keeping it heavily planted. I have an understocked 40b planted tank that the neons would go into.

2 - Tear down he 20g and put the Hex tank there. Place my betta in my 3g salt water tank and turn the hex into a LPS reef.

3 - Keep the planted 20g as is and find another place to put the hex tank.
