The plants look alot more green and bright under the new light. The tank is more "yellow" and less "blue". I'll get used to the change. Here's some pics! FTS and close up of one of the three-spined sticklebacks.

Wow!!! Your tank?! I had no idea!!! I LOVE it!!

What in the hell are you going to do with all of those lol. Do you have a store or something? I see you already have a ton of tanks how in the heck do you pay for the maintenance!?

Thank you Dino! All of the decor (except sand and plants-although hornwort is native to the river) are from the Columbia River. I had alot of fun collecting all the rocks and wood and catching the sticklebacks!

The fish will really appreciate the live plants!!! Now a couple of decorative stones and maybe a driftwood!!!

Hms1085 05-08-2013 01:36 AM

Driftwood is a great idea!! Thanks!

I have a plan for each and very tank. I don't own, nor do I plan to own a store but I do plan on breeding to offset some of my cost. I finally got to a point in my life where I can afford my hobby,
So if I can make a little back in the mean time, so be it.

I really do not think any fish you could raise, unless they are something like some zebra plecos L46, could pay you back for the cost of water, electricity, food, supplies, etc.

I think that's a great idea! You may be able to make some money, maybe get yourself some fish food etc...

If you breed enough and start making a name for yourself and depending on stock it could be fun and work at the same time.

In 72G this AM, still having problems

https://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...ml#post2467906

if anybody can help out more!

Lost a bunch of fish including some of my favorites, Hillstream Reticulated Loach, the 7 inch long SAE, I lovingly called the twins as they were identical and were always near each other...:bawl: My heart actually hurts.

My 7+inch long Red Tail shark has her color back and looks like we could be going in a positive direction.
