New 60 Gallon Tank

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone, it should be a ton of fun raising these little buggers up as they are only 2 months old.

I managed to get some better shots of the fish and just how much room I am giving them. Also a shot of Duke enjoying his first real snowfall just after Christmas.

Here you can see the wen slowly developing. Fish are about 3 months old and ~2" in total length. Being fed 6-7x a day while I am cycling the tank.

How often do you change water in this set up?

How often do you change water in this set up?

It's 60 gallons of water but I'm doing about 50% or more every other day. I never let ammonia get over 1ppm, even if it is Nh4 bound. Not nitrites yet but I'll post some specifics if there is interest.

I'm still going too feed the heck out of them at this life stage and change things up big time come November. I'm keeping them in a hot house environment throughout their first year of development.

It's a Jolly Ball push and play and it's one of the few toys that he can't destroy.

It's big!

We have the jolly ball that came with the rope, he loves that thing but I can see how it would easily be destroyed.

 

Check out the Jolly Egg. Thing is loud as heck on the floors, but our dog goes nuts for it. Wears him out easily :teehee

Great picture of Duke!!!!!!! He is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!

Thanks....I just found out his breeder was awarded the best ADBA breeder in the USA for 2014 and he only produces about 1 litter per year. I consider myself blessed to be able too own a dog of this caliber. 50lb. lap dog that can hurdle a 6' fence.
