TheresaM's tank thread

Like a few other members I decided to start a tank thread...one place for updates, photos, etc of all the tanks rather than multiple threads I forget to update

I did some rearranging and moving over the summer so I now currently have:

16g
2x 10g
2x 5g
2.5 g

I think the next step here will be to get some decent FTS, post those, and introduce each tank

Wonderful! You have some non-run-of-the-mill fish in those tanks. Great to be able to see them all in one thread.

It's funny because I don't plan that, just research and get what interests me. I recently added green neons to the 16g and realized that after 15+ years in the hobby they're my first tetras!

I love my tiny fish but it can be difficult at times at my eyesight as gotten much worse the past year or so

You certainly picked some cool looking first tetras. I think embers are my favorite tetra.
When you post the FTSs, be sure to include a descriptive blurb (tank size, stocking, filter, lighting, etc) for each tank.

A Mr B follower, that's great! I've been behind updating the page though, really need to get back into it.

I researched a lot of schoolers before deciding on the greens, they ended up fitting in so well with the colors of the fish already in the tank.

Such great colors...funny how with them and some of the other fish you can actually see them even with tank lights off!

Ok, quick post while I have some new shrimp acclimating....this is the tank I call the jungle:



Standard 10g
Black sand substrate
Least killifish (H. formosa)
2 otos
RCS
Flame moss shrimp cave
Lots of misc plants

This is a no-tech tank: no filter, no heater, indirect northwest sunlight only. I do water changes maybe every other week.

Need to do something about the plants in this tank. Either remove the dwarf sag and just let the najas take over, or cut back on the najas.

I love these tanks! so simple but elegant.

And the micro fish too, as fresh and others said, those are not your ordinary fish. Very cool!

Definitely simple, just never felt like I could get the hang of aquascaping

In the past I bred shellies (stapps, multies, occies) but otherwise I had larger fish. Got back into the hobby after the betta I had for 4+ years died and I saw CPDs...been hooked on the nano fish ever since!
