Albert the Fourths Office home

I found this cute office tank and thought it was way too small so I took out the furniture and put it in and Eclipse Bio Wheel 2.5 or 3 gallons I can't remember now but he loves it. Since it sits on my desk at work every that comes in just loves it. I even went so far as to put my picture in the frame on top of the filing cabinet. I laminated it and its just now 2-1/2 years later needs to be replaced. I used the trash can(behind the filing cabinet) as a plant container for some sprigs of anacharis. Then when we moved to a new location the anacharis didn't do well so I brought in the Java plant (I think thats what it is..could be wrong)and its doing well tied into the pot. Its even produced a baby which I stuck in the top of the filing cabinet. I have a turkey baster I use to vacuum the bottom and do water changes usually on Fri. He's left alone thru the weekend and seems to do ok. If I'm gone longer like vacations I have one of the other girls feed him. He's named after my boss! Hope you like it....

Cute! I don't know if I've ever had a boss I liked well enough to name something after. Then again I've never had a donkey as a pet.

Here's the new tank I set up for Boreas. This was the old tank my room mate and I had about 3 years ago. I could have sworn it was a 5g, but it's only 2g. So I gutted it, replaced the airstone undergravel "filter" with the whisper 1-3g filter, replaced the dead bulb and got fake silk plant from the craft section of Walmart and cut it into pieces. Boreas seems to like it much more than the 1g he was in for a few days, so I'm happy. :)

Before you buy more of it, wait a couple of weeks to see if it survives. I'm painfully learning about plants in my other tank and have found a few things.
Red plants need the most light
light green need 2nd most
dark green needs low-med light.

It's possible the red one might wither within 2-3 weeks. I've had stuff like that happen to me and wasted about $20 on really nice stuff that I wasn't equipped to take care of properly (no CO2 injector, low-med lighting)

Well, I've got a fluorescent tube over my tank at the moment. I'm generally giving the plants anywhere between 12 and 14 hrs of light a day. They seem to be doing ok for the most part. I'll keep an eye on it tho, thanks for the heads up.
