Hi everyone! I grew up with a 10 gallon tank and enjoyed it immensely. I now have two sons and decided to share this experience with them. We have a 30 gallon freshwater tank. Let the system cycle for 4 weeks and have introduced some fish; 3 giant danios, 1 Otto, 3 Black skirt tetras, 1 bala shark and 1 stripped Raphael catfish. I understand the bala will become large and plan to add an additional larger tank when the time comes. Will post pictures and may ask questions in the future. Thanks.

Here are a copy pics of the tank setup. Dark picture was my oldest son trying to see the Raphael cat at night

Thanks Mr tap water and Shellyx. Would like to eventually do something with drift wood and live plants. For now, the fish seem happy and healthy.

Welcome to AA. I think that the dark picture creates the illusion of an underwater cave with only a single ray of sunshine to illuminate it. Really neat.

Thanks Carriwin, love to take credit for it but that was my 6 yr old boys idea... fairly creative.

Thanks Dela, I told my son that he someone commented on his lighting in the fish tank and he got really excited... Pretty sure I may have created an addict...
