Delapool's 150 gallon tank

Tetras are going great - tank to themselves and enough of them to keep them out of mischief.

Tiger barbs are gradually dwindling away - seems like one gets harassed, then the next one, etc. Maybe Iíll try a stress free school of plastic fish next

Rosy or cherry barbs Iím thinking Iíll try a school of. Need something near surface but wonít get picked on. Tetras donít seem to last in this one.

I was never happy with any barbs I tried. Always chasing and fighting. I have been happy with my Dwarf Neon Rainbows.

Rosy barbs are not nice in my limited
brief experience. If it's a community tank.

Hmmm - maybe rainbows could be the go.

Iíd like to add some really tall plants at back so could grab something next visit.

Someone gave me fish one time when I went to buy a small tank (I didn't want them but they pleaded for their lives, saying they would die there,) and there was a very nice Cherry Barb. It was a male and never bothered the other fish. Never kept a big group of them. Very colorful.

The Rainbow fish are a great suggestion.

One of my favorite long plants is Crypt Balansae. The leaves are crinkly and they are long and flow in the water, gorgeous.

Sigh - so both Tunz CO2 diffusers had the tube pop off the powerhead last week. Solved with a Ďtemporaryí rubber band to hold it all together. Got back home last night about 8pm from work and one of the blockheads has one of the rubber bands hanging out of his mouth. Promptly vanished in the weeds (er, planted tank). So this weekend will be trying to track him down to retrieve it. Plastic plants, plastic fish - life would be simpler

Thought that rubber band was a worm by golly. Like little kids, can't turn around for a minute. My 2yo grandson, while I was standing for just a few minutes back to him with the other GS, less than 2 meters away, colored 2 huge scribble circles, in 2 colors - one for each hand, ambidextrous, on the newish hardwood floor. Luckily they were water removeable, and we both will live another day.

Good luck in retrieving the fish. Who says, I didn't eat the giant worm, honest. I hope you can save him from himself.

And hope the repair in the tank works without the need of a rubber band.

Yes, Iíll have to think of something different other then rubber bands. Or maybe a really thick unbreakable one haha.

It was almost a sigh of relief to read the floor and not a fish tank had crayon on it good news it came off ok.
