A real fish, well I'll believe you, but I still can't help but think something looks too perfect with him/her.

Chrisinha- I'm up north, seen any up there? Haha.

Lets see if I can answer all the questions on the first round :)

Devs, I may breed a few, gotta get a breeding tank set up. There was spawning going on with the gold ranchu a few months ago, but I just let the eggs get eaten. Worried about hovering anxiously over fry :)

Technogold.... I LOVE the larger tank, so many plants and decoration possibilities. It was funny to put the goldies in the first time. I had one keep waggling (her little ranchu butt) all the way from one end to the other, over and over.... SO cute!

Puggirl - I paid $45 for the male black ranchu, by far the most I have spent on a fish so far. I have been wanting a velvet black one for ages now though.

9 Fish total... 6 ranchus and 3 lionheads. Three are just babies. I paid $200 for the tank used and it came with a Penguin 300? and Emperor 400 (I made out like a bandit). Plus I have two HOT Magnums, one I just put on two weekends ago that I got for $25 (fish auction!) and another that I pulled off an existing tank that I used to jumpstart the tanks cycle. So... 400+ 300 + 250 +250 is 1200 gph. I was planning on adding a Fluval canister or wetdry filter when I get the funds. I have 2 triple tube lights on the tank (hence the algae bloom). Only big problem I have is the support bar is made of glass and takes up a 3rd of the top... it makes it hard to add lots of filters.

Panda - I just got the plants two weeks ago, they have grown 2 in since then with the lighting. As for leaves... there are some that come off, normally I just scoop them. I have more problems with floating java moss than them.

Cheers everyone! Thanks!

That's a fantastic tank and fish. I love the way you've got the scene going from a forest down to a lake-shore.

I've recently seen a few pics of a new trend in Chinese aquariums using a flat piece of opaque glass half buried in the gravel to simulate a narrow river (with little bridges over them), but you've used the bottom itself to simulate a whole lake! Brilliant!

PS. After experiencing the same problem all the time with the water going green from algae blooms, I can't recommend highly enough getting a UV. Green water gone forever in less than a day!

:thumb: Had to add my cudos to you! I can't wait to put some plants in jars like that. That is a great idea. The tank is really beautiful. What kind of lighting do you have??
