Today, I saw my library had a chiclid (?) tank, and I know nothing about chichlids, but I do know that that tank is grossly overcrowded. :/ It made me really mad! Even my friend, who knows nothing about fish in general knows that it's just not right. x(
Overstocking a cichlid tank is a common practice to help disperse aggression - it helps make sure not just one or two guys are getting picked on. You should see my 75 gal. cichlid tank - it would make you CRINGE! Plenty of filtration & water changes and it's all good, though.
where you do you buy your tanks and the pretty things inside? I saw like 5 or 6 things i like in your tanks.. The turtle, and the frong and maybe a dora i saw?
I just bought a little pumkin holder and put it in my tank ill have to take a picture but im just starting out with fish decor ;)
Here are some new ones of my tank :3 I know its not much right now, kinda bare. But Adamu seems to like it, and look! I removed a few of the suction cub plants and separated to have them float on top, and what do I come back to 20 minutes later? Adamu moved them to the other side of the tank, and has made a nice Bubble Nest :3
I'm going to be redesigning his tank sooner or later as soon as I have money. Which them should I go for? Tokyo-vibe or African-Savannah? I'm feeling more Tokyo myself :P Anyway here are some pics!
(Here's the tank, note how small Adamu is compared to the 5.5 gallons. Is he still a baby? :/)
(BUBBLE NEST FTW! And made in only 20 minutes if I might add in, pretty good for his first one ;)
(Is he a Half-moon or a Delta? I'm pretty sure the cup said an HM but he kinda looks like a delta.....)
(Get dat camera up out my face foo! Stop takin pics of my bubble nest too!)
Hint. Adamu hates the camera.
Anyway there are the pics of the tank, hopefully by sometime next week I'll have it decorated and it'll look a bit more worthy to be in the same thread of some of these other amazing tanks. BTW is a 5.5 gallon to small to divide if I ever got another Betta? I don't want to make Adamu uncomfortable.
