This is the main fish tank, newly renovated today with more coherent decor and a new and improved filter (kept the old media)! Yay! I had a phase with real plants, but these are obviously mostly-fake now. There's still one anubias in the far right and three small water wisteria plants in the middle though. And the marimos, of course.
It's a 10 gallon divided into three, a short-tailed boy on either end and a veil-tail girl in the middle. (Icarus, Eleanor, and Nero respectively.) They have been this way for a while now and everyone is completely fine with one another. I think the boys are brothers, because they're similar-looking, were purchased around the same time, and... well, both have a serious problem with tumors... Taking it day-by-day with that, but they're still very happy and eating well, so... (:
And this is Julius my halfmoon. Of course, he doesn't look much like a halfmoon because, from what I gather, he's a very nervous type of fish. He hates live plants (he eats them to get them out of his way!) and demands no less than four pellets a day or he'll... get paranoid and eat his tail off even more than he usually does. Julius has such odd behavior! Honestly, he's been doing better in this small 1.5 gallon setup than anything else, so that's where I'm keeping him. (:
Bonus tiger salamander larva tank! Got him/her on a whim a couple of weeks ago from a mall stand, thinking it was an axolotl, since I was unaware that there was more than one species that had external gills as larvae. Especially since that's what the pamphlet said, even though it did not identify the species. I did some quick research to be sure I could take care of an axie, since they were selling out very quickly to people who would surely keep them in the tiny kritter keepers they were being sold in... (Ugh, it was just like the betta cups I swear!) I should have been smart enough to do a more thorough search. >_>
Well, after a huge proclamation of "NEVER AGAIN!" I vowed that, since I bought the poor baby with the intention of giving it a good home, I would do just that, even though it wasn't what I expected. I bought a filter that could accommodate lowering water levels and a little turtle landing pad for it to try out. Now, I kinda can't wait for it to become a terrestrial salamander! Its name is Noodle, but my mother calls it Sheldon, haha. The tank is a 20 gallon, about half-filled right now.
I ABSOLUTLY am in love with this tank. AWESOME AWESOME AWSOME, now I can convince my husband I can hae three bettas and fit them in just one tank. SCORE. Thanks for sharing!
