  1. My white clouds are pretty active with the chasing and the males doing their synchronized swimming dominance display. I can't say that there is actual nipping or physical contact though. It seems to be mostly chasing and display. Now that I'm down to only one male, things have calmed down quite a lot. I love those fish and am thinking that when the goldies die, I'll have a tank like you're planning - White clouds & a gourami.:-) Good luck! Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  2. Hey Shawnee... Got a new 55 gallon acrylic and stand a few months ago. I LOVE it!!! Haven't had time to post any pics...I do know the saying "Pics or it didn't happen" and soon I will post some. But need to resist the temptation to set up a second box of water...sweetie has said that 55 gallons in the living room is more than enough!! And I agree. Cheers!
  3. I upgraded and have a 55 Gallon acrylic tank and stand for sale. 48" long x 13" wide x 18" tall. It is a used tank with a few scratches, but you can hardly see them when it's filled with water. It does look a bit dirty in some of the pictures, but that's just algae that will easily clean off with a bit of elbow grease. NO LEAKS!! The stand is brown wood, it has a shelf inside and a hook for hanging equipment. Also available - brand new cherry oak stained canopy - does not match stand. PM me if you're interested. mj
  4. Good morning! I'm on my second to last commute before I take off for 6 weeks. Getting excited! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727 using Tapatalk 2

  8. Ooooh! SG She's lovely! I like Melba, too. Congrats! Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  9. I've used one of those for a peace lily and philodendron. I just took a cutting of the plants and hold them in place with extra filter media. I have 2 lucky bamboo in a whisper 20 filter as well. I haven't noticed a difference with the nitrates yet. It's been a few months. I think I may need to add more plants for it to make a difference.

  10. I agree! It's a beautiful tank and the fish are amazing. Thanks for sharing. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727 using Tapatalk 2
  11. Meant to be! Glad stripey fishie likes her bubble wall. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727 using Tapatalk 2
  12. Lovely! The fish have grown so much! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727 using Tapatalk 2
  13. Lovely! I'm jealous of the bubbles in the background. I think I need a stronger air pump...my bubbles never loom like that. Congrats on the new look. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  14. Stunning fish, Helen! Thanks for sharing. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  15. Good luck, Mike Doyle! I've had good results with metromeds for swim bladder issues. It can be a pain to use, but it was quite effective for Fluffy for some time.
  16. So cute! I can't decide which I love more - cutie baby fish faces' or the chubby grumpy grown up ones. Congrats!:wub: Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  17. Mr. Blue the first lived for 2 years...but I was stilllearning about fish care. I hope Mr. Blue the 2nd will be with us for longer. It's funny about names. I put a lot of effort into naming them, but they both get called Mr. Blue...
  18. I hear you spillie. I had 7 wcm's to start with. 2 mysteriously disappeared. One died of a weird wasting disease. They are all too big to be snacks now - almost 2" long.
  19. I love my minnows! I've had them for almost 2 years. I have 2 pairs so there is lots of breeding behavior. Never any fry because of the goldfish cleanup crew. I'd like to add some more but I'm a bit overstocked.
  20. Wow! He's gorgeous! Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  21. Ohhh! I want one! Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  22. Yikes! I was reading this great thread and drooling about planning such a set up, that I forgot I was draining the tank. Next thing I know, fluffy was splashing to let me know that the water was getting too low! I've really enjoyed reading about your plans and look forward to seeing the pics.

  23. It's looking great! Nemo is so pretty and I am sure he's loving his new home. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2

  25. I like the idea of an olive green background, too. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
