For my first tank, (Ten Gallons My old tank that Im cleaning out and getting ready again) Im just going to do some Tetra's and Gourami's I think. Just something little for it.
After that, I intend to build a large tank. 5 Feet long, four feet high, and two feet depth. With the water going to a little over 3 feet. The tank would be a freshwater tropic, with some angels, Larger tetra's, (Going to Try) Clown loach and hope they can get along, Some Platies hopefully, If you guys have any suggestions (I really like colorful fish) Let me know!
I'm really hoping to get a Box Turtle, or a painted turtle, as they are apparently almost completely vegetarian right from the start, preferring Bugs if they are going to eat any thing other then Vegetation. I have been researching how to build a 3D background, and intend to build one that can also serve as a land base for the turtle. With a Lamp over it.
Im thinking with the turtle, I may have to go three feet depth though. to ensure he has enough space to move around up there...
I also intend to run two filters, a wet dry, and a Canister, (Both with UV
's) To try and cut down the bioload, and keep him clean, (And my water/fish)
The Clown's apparently need a larger tank eventually, so when I do have to, (Hopefully thats a looong ways down the road) I will build a larger tank for them all, and get some Bala Sharks.
And then turn this tank into a a Salt water.
