So here's a few current pics of our 80g brackish tank. My tiger lotus is doing wonderful.

My favorite part is the snowman. How did you get it to not melt?

Nice job on the plants. The whole thing is just very peaceful looking...

Thank you. I was trying to go for an over-grown balinese garden type feel. The snowman, *snorts* no sooner did I put that up than Ryuu, the bigger of our 2 dragon gobys started "attacking" it. *lol*

Next time I'll bait them. One hides in the standing dragon, the other hides behind the plants.

Thanks. Yeah the mixing can be a drag but I only mix every other water change. Since the gobys are wild caught, they're used to changes in salinity. Research comes in handy. *lol*

I did the something similar in my old "Dragons Lair". I didn't skip adding salt but did change the salinity from 1.008 to 1.010 every other water change. For the exact same reason, they are used to it and supposedly it's good for bw fish.

I try to keep the salinity a little lower because we have mollies and ghost shrimp in there too. I know the mollies can handle more, but I'm not too sure about the ghosts.

So my fiance says:

Tonight as I was feeding the swarm, that it looks like Ryuu is getting big for the tank (he's at 6 inches) and we might want to think of a larger tank in the future.


Now you see why I'm gonna marry him? I see a 120, nay, perhaps a 125 BW in my future. (along with lots of happy times, gotta love someone who loves making you happy)


Muahahahaha

If you look up you'll see current pics of both of them.

Yeah, I know he's fine in this tank, which is 80, but there are two of them, and if the fiance thinks they'll need a bigger tank, who am I to argue
