our theme is the movie predator. bunch of junk yard gangstas led
by arnold (the big convict) vs the big old meen armored alien thing, our lobster.
its a 20 gallon. it has 1 blue lobster, 2 convicts, 2 small firemouths and a few some others that i forget 9roomies own em- i own the firemouths). the big black convict in the center, "ahnuld" as we call him, rules the tank: he has a big 'ole fat lump on his skull, kind alike a headdress. he's a tad over 5" and fattttt!!! he is awesome; he comes up to the glass when we come near and likes to watch and follow the girls around the room in his tank. our sort of fish- horny and hulky.
the others (whatever they are), when we see em, are babies still, like 2-3" tops! gonna get em a big 55 during christmas so me and my roomies can get some big gangbangers in there.
the lobster lives under that rock he's perched on. we had a clown loach in there- he was cool, but i think the lobster snagged em one night a while ago cause i havent seen him inside the tank or his shriveled butt outside so he's toast. interstingly, never seen his skeleton either- guess the lobster was hungry.
i lost count of how many plants are in there,m so please don't ask me. we add em all the time since they have a high casualty rate due to many junkyard rumbles.
we don't even bother with making it look nice; we're just so gosh diddly darn lazy its amazing we aren't dead from not cleaning the dorm room.
but, some things we do believe in with these critters: massive water changes and mucho amounts of filtration.
we do once a week 50% water changes.
filter is a millennium 3000 (350 gph
on 20 gallon- ahah, over-filtered for the boyz).
got an undergravel filter in there with an aquaclear 50 pumping it and a sponge filter with air. we just use seahcem excel and flourish with 1 15 watt strip lights, the other broke, or bjorked, lol.
thanks for looking!
