What I have been up to lately

Post by l_l_l on Wed Mar 11, 2015 9:25 am

Hello!

You might have noticed that I haven't been that active on the forums lately. There has been a lot of changes in my life in the past few months. I recently separated and moved, had a lot of stuff going on at the same time.. Sad

Everything is much better today than it was a couple of months ago tho. And that means I also have more time for fishkeeping.

Anyways, lets jump straight to fish related stuff.
I'll just post a few pictures of my newest aquisitions and projects Smile

First of, here is my current setup, 2x5 gallon fry tanks, and a 20g long Iwugami setup, it is still very bare, waiting on spring to order some plants for it.


This is a setup I made for my current girlfriend,


This is my new Betta, he's in the 77g community tank.


This is my new Dwarf Gourami, he comes from a local breeder, hopefully he isn't as fragile as the asian farmed ones:


My girlfriend is a big Pleco fan, she has a huge collection and I'm starting to be fascinated by them..
I learned through her that plecos can be fun and that some of them are not ugly.

Here is one of my L201


And here is my L018 (which she bought me for my birthday)


And finally, here is one of the new tennants of the 10g tank, which used to be Fighter's sanctuary. He's presently sharing with 2 other, hopefully I sexed them correctly (1male 2 females). They are also sharing space with cherry shrimp.


Hope you enjoyed Smile

Cheers!

I love the hardscape in your 20 gallon long! Where did you get those nice stones?!

The fish in the last picture: are they the dwarf puffers that they have currently on sale in Aquarius? Caoder got some of those....

Thank you Smile
I got the stones at Aqua Sense, the new store that opened near the Atwater Market. Smile

It is a dwarf puffer, but I got him at my lfs called pattes et griffes,
It was 3 for 9.99$
They have been in their tank for a month now Smile
They already started eating Blood worms but I'm trying to get them to eat other stuff. Of course they have a nice supply of snails..

That is where I plan to get the petrified wood once a new 10 gallon comes in!

Caoder also got them to eat blood worms; tonight I will give him a nice colony of small snails that are bite size for these cuties.

Overall you have a beautiful aquarium! I especially love the colours of the betta. I would almost describe them as neon. And seeing your puffer makes me especially nostalgic about having one!
