Koko's New Guppy Tank

Recommended Posts

Photos as soon as I can :)

 

TD and I have been talking for a while about either upgrading the tank or a Puppy for Justine.... Well the Tank won as We have 3 cats and Well We dont think it would be good right now :) As 2 cats are inside and one is a out door. :(

 

So any way.. TD got me a 36 gallon Bow front tank. I have always wanted a bow front for the guppies or goldfish. Bow fronts are just so neat to me.

 

So now I got to fill the tank up as it looks so naked and well now it looks like I have hardly any guppies... It also looks like the old ponds heater that I was using isnt working right as we cant set it right, also the light it came with I dont like as it wont support the live plants I want to get in there again....

When they where in the 10 they where crowed again :lol now I feel empty :rofl

 

Hey I see some Mollies coming I think. I lost both of my girls but the Boy is there there... :)

 

I got to get plants in there :o

 

Oh and the heater got to warm and made the tank 81F :yikes... Its a very old heater used for the pond, so I think its going out.. So we took the heater out and now I got to figure out how to take a Sick Justine to the store and fix the tank before more jump out... yup two guppies trying to leave :(

Mollies will help fill the space too!  OH no that is hot for little guppies!  I love my jager heaters... I have never had any trouble with them in the whole 6 months I have had fish tanks :teehee ... don't know about long term yet!  Whoa there guppies!  Tell those guppies life will get better and they don't need to end it so drastically just yet!

 

Oh Justine, that is not good you are sick... you will just have to get a treat to help you get better.... some Mollies maybe?  or maybe something rhyming with Mollies??? :teehee (I didn't say the word Koko so you are not committed!) :hi

Yeah they thought it would be cooler out of the tank :o I had one of those a while ago, but the pond killed it :rofl

 

No no, no other pets for us.. I still got a betta too :thud:

Well sounds like a beautiful 'Fishy' :teehee   And good plan with the lollies.  I was in the same boat when I was little.  I thought up until I was well past five that the icecream man or mr whippy van that used to drive around our neighbourhood blaring green sleeves was just that, a music van!  It wasn't until my stepfather bought me a soft serve one day that I realised it did more than play music.  :thud

 

Sorry I derailed your thread somewhat.  My bad!  :sorry::

 

What plants are you planning for your guppy tank?  What sort of substrate?  Oh I cant wait to see it all progress!  :happydance
