Finally have fish :)

Alright. I kicked off my vacation with a few purchases since my cycle on my 55 was done. My fiance and I just purchased a 150 gallon (for $300, plus 2 canister filters, penguins, heaters etc!!! Talk about a steal!) and will be getting that next weekend. I think the big tank I will do white sand since this one has black. Anyways! Here are a few (terrible) pics and one (terrible) video. I will bust out my camera this weekend (we are going to the Ottawa ComicCon tomorrow!) and attempt better shots...I thought bettas were hard to capture...these guys NEVER stop moving!

The ryukin is Smaug, ranchu is Samwise Gamgee and the butterfly is Eowyn. Smaug is HUGE... once the 150 is ready to go, I will put him in there.

Here are some more that kindof show better size/colors/patterns. Eowyn has a really striking color pattern... which I am finding impossible to capture. Her base is white, with splashes of a deep orange, and black on her tail and dorsal edges.

I really like the black sand that you are using and I am planning to get some , but is it easy to see the debris during water change ?

Water changes are super easy! The debris that doesn't get sucked up into my filter just rests on top of the sand. Easy to see and suck up. I have a planted 5 gallon that has fluorite, and am realllly thinking about making that sand too, and just using root tabs (along with my other ferts).

And thank you everyone! I am so in love with them! Glad you like them too :)

I want to get some more plants for this one. I'm not big on decor, save for driftwood. I will pretty much do the same thing with the 150. And Aowyn is a girl! She was being chased relentlessly the day after I did a big wc...Smaug and Samwise are also definitely boys. I guess I now have to do another big wc... lots of eggs for such a tiny girl! I was quite surprised! Guess they like the tank :P
