So I have been away for quite some time, but been real busy getting situated with my career. I am currently in the process of looking for a new apartment, condo or house. In the mean time now that I have a better handle on things and less crazy, I have decided to get back into keeping goldfish again. With the current apartment due to size and lack of space, I am unable to get the tank I want (don't want to move a 125g plus tank in less than a year), so for now I have a couple small tanks until I move.
I am rocking a 45 which holds Poseidon, Oroku Saki, Dr. Jeckyl, and Pompeii. Yes, I am aware that this is overstocked, but running plenty of filtration (Emporer 400, Emporer 150B, Multi Stage Canister Filter C-160, and a Penn Plax Cascade Canister Filter - 1000). Positioned all accordingly so don't mess with flow of tank. I monitor levels daily and make needed water changes based off levels.
My second tank is a 20 gallon, which hold Godzilla and Teddy. Filters of Emporer 400 and Multi Stage Canister Filter C-160.
I will have a fish room in my new place, so the 45 will be turned into a small tropical community tank. Will also be getting a 75g discus tank and using the 20g as a QT tank. Can't wait to get everyone into the 125g plus, still haven't quite decided. Really all depends on how much weight the floor can handle as many places north of Boston are real old houses. If I can get into a newer place, would love to get like a 250g for the goldfish
Feels good to be back again!
Took some photos of my little guys, hope you guys enjoy
