[quote=undergunfire;989413]I redid my 10g tank because I'm just not a fan of divided tanks, so I'm not sure why I keep doing it . Ghost Rider shares it with 6 Pygmy Cories (may add 3 more from my other tank) and 3 Assassin snails. Its a NPT....



Beautiful tank and beautiful betta!

That is a beautiful tank, BarleyBear.

Yep! You're only the second person to recognize the name. Thanks for the compliment.

[quote=kfryman;993661]Here is my NPT sorority. Has been setup for a almost two months, but has only had fish in it for three weeks. Shrimp for about a month.

I just realized it is not up to date.[/QUOTE

Is that a Buddha or Kwan Yin? Looks really nice!

Okay so I'm going on vacation for a week && I'm taking my 2.5 gal tank with me. Its a downgrade for Goblin from a 4 gallon, and I'm taking a gallon of water he's acclimated too so its practically half his water half new water. Here's a picture of the tank I'm taking.

I have a couple fairly large silk plants I can stick in there if need be.

Oh && since I'm going to the beach, I was wondering if I could steal some of the sand (its really pretty white) and use it to start a NPT?

We have beautiful white quartz sand here on the Gulf Coast. I've heard of people using it in freshwater tanks after they rinse it extremely well to remove salt and other debris. I'm not sure I'd risk it. However, BlackwaterRriver and some other creeks and rivers in the area have almost the same kind of white sand. I've used that in tanks before after rinsing it well.

Where are you going on vacation? If it's anywhere on the Gulf Coast, keep in mind we still find tar balls once in a while. Might not be a great choice.
