Convict, turquoise jewel. Firemouth, tiger Oscar, blood parrot, 2 albino buenos Aries tetras, common goldfish, and common pleco.
I am not a noobie, and I am going to put the Oscar and parrot in bigger tanks when necessary.

Tank looks good.. I am not trying to start a fight, but that goldfish can't be in there. They just get too big. Neither can the pleco, they too get too big. If they were gone it would be better. Just my opinion :)

I wasnt trying to come across like i was mad. Lol. Thanks for your opinion but im going to keep this setup until I feel that they are outgrowing the tank.

Alright, thats no problem. Just make sure you have a good place to put them in case you decide to re-home them

I live in new York. I got the rocks from a stream where I fish for trout. Got about 150 pounds worth. And every now and then I like to change and switch them out.

I have a tiger Oscar, firemouth, blood parrot, convict, and turquoise jewel. And a pleco. Eventually I would like to move the Oscar to a bigger tank, but for now everyone is happy!!

I really like the way your second setup turned out. That really "draws" the eye in & makes you want to take a closer look.

Fishguy1987 01-31-2012 10:56 PM

Yeah I like the big structure to be where you moved it to. Great job I like the layout

johnnteresa 02-05-2012 03:56 PM

Good looking setup

Moved everything around again. Added some real drift wood. And the Oscar is about 3-4 inches in length. He is really getting big

TheCrazyFishLady 02-06-2012 05:47 PM

I love the fake wood on the right! I wanted to get it so bad, but I have nowhere to put it.
