My New 90 Gallon Is Up And Running!

OK, I know I have been talking about it for weeks, but my 90 gallon is FINALLY done and my fish are in it! yay! Thanks to my lovely fiance/husband who re-sealed it for me and made sure that the stand was cockroach-free (always watch out for this when buying used stands!). The tank started out with nasty caulking in it, whoever had it before had resealed it over old, gross, green caulking and used way too much. So he stripped it bare and started over.

Then, when we were testing it to make sure there were no leaks, it was christened by one the snails in our yard who thought it was a good place to take a poo!

Then, we dragged it into the house and I got it set up

Took the fish out of their old 55 gallon home

And added the fish to their new, much better home!

And they are happy as can be!

Now comes musical tanks, version 2, moving the telescopes into the 55 gallon!

Thanks! Yeah, they are giant. When I got them they were almost that big and were all living in a 10 gallon tank! They could barely turn around! I was only able to move them into a 20 for awhile, which was a tiny bit better and required daily water changes. But then I got the 55 and they were pretty good in there, although I know still overstocked. With overfiltering and lots of water testing, they were pretty ok in there. They bred eight times even! But the 90 gallon is even better for them, and the 55 will be great for my telescopes. Then, my two year old fry from the giants get to move into the 20 gallon. Musical tanks!

I love your fish Kharma...i want to try and find a black and white telescope to add to my tank, but they are not easy to find around here!

And I just noticed the scary picture of my cat under the tank in the 5th picture...

I love the pic of your cat!!! I thought that was a cute one!

Thanks about Kharma. She actually isn't black and white anymore. She lost the majority of her black right away and just had a teeny bit around her eyes and it stayed that way for months. Then the last few weeks even THAt changed from black to orange. Now she is a mostly white telescope with a teeny bit of orange around her eyes. She's still pretty though.

My orange telescope, Lisa, used to be a calico that was mostly black but she has lost all of the black except a stripe and a spot on her tail. I hate that! One of my black moors has a white belly now though, so i call him a pseudo-Panda moor. All of your fish are gorgeous!

I am worried about Lisa though, she is not doing so great since I moved her into the new tank tonight. I made a post in 911 so we'll see if anyone has any thoughts-I think I will just have to wait and see though.
