Olympia, that's a rocking education system you have there. :D Here in the States it's all about standardized testing. Forget hands-on learning experiences like that.
I still have to figure out what kind of cichlid I want for the 55gal. Every time I think I've made up my mind, I see another one that I want. And I can't put down substrate until I decide because if I get an African cichlid, I need to put down an aragonite substrate to make the water harder. Why must I be so indecisive?
Here in the States, you don't start to really learn anything until you go to university. And even then it's a crap shoot on whether or not you get good professors.
So, my 55gal is too narrow. It's only 12.75 inches wide. Seems like a tight fit for fish that could get 8 inches long. I wish I'd gotten a bowfront. The piece of driftwood I bought took up the entire bottom of the tank. Not good for fish that like to burrow and dig. So now I don't know what to put in there. That pretty much rules out a lot of cichlids except dwarf cichlids. Maybe I should just get fancy goldfish.
Woah, what are the dimensions on that one?! My 15 and 20 are both 12 inches wide!
Seems like a small fish tank.
You should get some of the larger rainbow fish, bosemani, lake kutubu, red... Lots of colors but they only get like 3-4".
Just a thought, love those fish. Posted via Mobile Device
Effie is in time out, in the breeder net, at least until tonight i think. She's such a bully! Cinderella turned out to be the one who doesn't really care- she's got a nip out of her anal fin and one out of her tail! The green girl is cute and curious now that Effie is in time out. Kira hides quite a bit, and her dark color doesn't really help me see her.
Peach...I sorta wonder if I'll need to put her in a 1 gallon with epsom. She occasionally goes and sits on the bottom, and looks like she's breathing on the hard side. I'll keep an eye on her. I'd be really bummed if she didn't make it. She's so pretty!
The little bristlenose is all over. Cute as or cuter than the cories- i can't decide xD but albino was a good choice, i can always see it.
Olympia, it's a standard 55gal so uhm . . . 12.75 inches wide, 48 inches long, and 21 inches tall. And I can't sell it and get a bowfront since my dad made a stand especially for it. He'd cry. Or kill me.
Bekah, aww, trouble in the sorority? Don't give up! It can take lots of time outs to get things settled. And I hope Peach is okay.
i definitely refuse to give up :U Effie is just so aggressive! i am also really paranoid she's a boy lol. I've been checking still at least once an hour, and while i was at work, mom checked, and Effie was chasing the other girls then too. So yeah, time outs in the breeder net, with a nylon over the top so she doesn't jump out.
The green girl still needs a name. I'm pondering Vera, but i dunno.
also bristlenose needs a name lol. i just want to know its gender! /dies
ALSO my nostril piercing is itchy *resists urge to scratch*
