  1. Ever since I joined Koko's I've been really taken with all the beautiful planted tanks from members here, so over the last few weeks I've made it my little project to convert my barebottom 55gallon into a planted tank. This is what my tank looked like when I first got it with fake plants: This is what it looks like now with anubias tied to driftwood, an amazon sword and a green crypt (the tiny pot on the left is a baby amazon sword cut from the mother plant that Kaji keeps picking at and uprooting, so I buried it deeper in the pot and surrounded it with bigger rocks in hopes that this will protect it). It's really simple and the plants are pretty ordinary, but I really like this new aesthetic and can't wait to see these plants grow!
  2. Hi Everyone, so I have always been a big fan of sand substrate. But since the 4 resent deaths I have gone BARE! I have also added a VU Sterilizer to try assist in preventing further issues. This is a video of my remaining fishes bar one. Bubble has SB issues. He's in a net I made in the top right corner. Being in shallow water helps correct himself easier. Plus the added bonus of being able to monitor how mush he eats and poops I think I might take some of the glass gems out... looks a bit cluttered. lol
  3. Hey all! I just finished a COMPLETE tank make over! Here are some before and after pics, as well as a new tank I'm starting, and some of the best pictures I've ever taken of Aveline! She was hanging out in the new tank while I redid her old one and that tank is near a window so there's wayyyyyyyyyyy more light for better picture taking! Old tank redone: Newer tank: Aveline! heehee that one makes me giggle a lot I'm realllllyy happy with it and think it looks so much nicer. And cleaner! I never thought I would like bare bottom tanks but I am loving the way my plants look in the jars and pots. Thanks for looking!
  4. Just spent half the day doing a large water change and lugging the 40 gallon outside to spray paint. Feeling so accomplished (background used to be black)
  5. I went bare bottomed again earlier and promised some pics...so here you go... http://s1272.photobucket.com/user/jdjn133/media/Tank_zpsed3fe568.jpg.html?sort=3&o=6 http://s1272.photobucket.com/user/jdjn133/media/Fish2_zps1509b0e8.jpg.html?sort=3&o=5 http://s1272.photobucket.com/user/jdjn133/media/Fish1_zps31e19abe.jpg.html?sort=3&o=4 http://s1272.photobucket.com/user/jdjn133/media/fish4_zpsb39a8800.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 (Sushi never stays still long enough for me to photograph him properly) http://s1272.photobucket.com/user/jdjn133/media/fish5_zpsb23b85db.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0
  6. So I'm going to eventually go bare bottom or just have a few rocks here and there but I really just want to see what others have done decor wise for their bare bottom tanks:) So post lots and lots of pictures of your bare bottom tank and of course lovely companions
  7. Hey any advice on removing substrate I would Like to remove my substrate and go bare bottom or use very little substrate
  8. I'm trying to plan for what type of aquarium set up I want. Pros and cons? For those that have tried both bare bottom and gravel/sand, have you noticed any difference in your fishes' behavior? I've read that the reflective bottom can be stressful for some fish is this true of goldfish? I would think that a bare bottom would be easier to clean. And while I haven't tried sand before in an aquarium, I would think that it would be the 2nd easiest to clean since there are less cracks for debris to fall in. Thanks in advance. Sorry if this has been posted once already.
  9. I'd love to know what you think ... And I'd appreciate any suggestions, tips, etc. I'm new here !
