Be careful with the immortal man. I had one and I loved it! But in about 2 weeks it started to get this grey/washed out color. I tried scrubbing it off and I realized it wasn't algae or anything growing on it. It had started to discolor on its own. I wasn't sure if I wanted it back in my tank or not but I cleaned it and tried it only to find the paint starting to bubble next. I immediately took it out of the tank. I haven't tossed him yet, but after sitting for a couple weeks by my sink his red color has returned. The paint has stopped bubbling. I read the reviews online for it, turns out many people had this problem. Just cant be sure its safe for fish after this :/ Which really stinks because I LOVED the way he started off in my tank. It was the neatest zen theme

The second picture is of Berry's home. He was in a 5.5 gal but then he got fin rot so I put him in a smaller tank for a week with some aquarium salt and it cleared up right away. but I noticed he did much better in a smaller tank so he is now in a 3 gal.
The third picture is my 20gal community tank. It has 4 mickey mouse platies, 4 julii cories, 1 VT male, and 1 phantom tetra.
I will have to get pictures of my other tanks still :)
I love your first tank. Did you paint 3 sides or just the back?

I think I finally got Chibi's tank the way I want it. I got him the Spongebob house :), the betta leaf hammock, and some betta plants. Got the heater up and running and the filter baffled. Thanks to your guys' help, my betta seems to be doing great! Thanks everyone!

I redid the girls community tank. Took me a bit to get the decor right, but I really like how it looks now:

^This is my newest addition to the family and he still has no name, but here is his tank.


I will post the rest later when I can find the pics I took. I have them somewhere on my computer lol
WOW!!!! My 5 year old daughter and I are IN LOVE with your tank!! Nice job! Really making me want to drag out our pink Kritter Keeper LOL!

How hard is it to keep the white stones separate from the gravel when cleaning?

Thank you :)

I just take them out and clean everything with hot water and AQ salt. I dont have a gravel vac. It takes time to clean all my tanks, but I find if I set aside time and focus on each tank I can get a great job with cleaning. I also am a great fan of the marina submersible filters. They are awesome in all my tanks 5gal or less.

Kasablanca, you have no idea how tempted I am to try to re-create that with our spare pink KK LOL! I do not think my husband would share in that temptation, however. Haha
