Small photoshoot of the tropical tank

Finally added a background to the 55 gallon tropical tank and planted some of the bulbs. Not much difference with the plants, so no focus pics of them. Instead lots of pics of the fish, and the new guy! Yes, a new guy. A beautiful high finned sunburst platy. High finned is an understatement though, his dorsal is so tall that he can barely erect it. Instead it looks like a long, yellow veil on his back :)

Here we go:

This is actually 4 photos edited together to give a nice non-flash view of the full tank. You can see the onion plants and aponogetons between the flower pot and the driftwood.

The new guy, still nameless. He really stood out to me at Pet$mart.

The other platies. Rocket (silver-blue base) is such a cool looking fish, and Lucky (red) is turning into such a pretty little runt.

The black neons are still a full dozen! I am proud of my angels for not eating them :rofl

The angels again. "Moon" is really the most perfect name for this fish

"It's a trap!"

The two big boys like to stare each other down through the divider. They do this literally half of the day LOL

Your tank is so clear! I love it! Everyone looks very pretty. And that newbie has some serious finnage!

How come you need the divider?

You see the two angels that stare each other down? Cid (the golden pearlscale) will totally beat Locke's rear without the divider. I'm waiting to get a lot more plants and have the two small angels grow full size. That way the plants will give more privacy and with there being three "targets" instead of one, this might keep these fish from murdering each other if I remove the divider.

Angelfish are such a PITA. :rofl

The divider only keeps the angels separate. There are small holes cut into it which allow all the smaller fish to move back and forth, and the big pleco simply glides over top of the divider :)

Thanks! Just too bad the glass is quite scratched up. But even with that, it was an amazing craigslist deal since so much stuff (fully functioning wet/dry filter with tons of bio balls, and a UV filter) came with it and it was only $ 50. I'm not gonna say NO because of the scratches :D

gotta love craigslist especially if you would like to get shot and buried in ohio.

anywho, i love your new yellowfish, and i think his name should be "Yellow Fish" (like the green lantern) i enjoyed his yellow cape, he's a super hero!

I really like the new background! It looks great!

Why no pictures of sucky fish!? He's my favorite :(

Sucky Fishie demanded to be paid $ 20 per photo. I didn't have that much money at hand, so he got mad and decided to hide in the big cave during the photo shoot :rofl

Moon is such a beauty! :) I can haz her?

No you can't haz!!! (I tend to think it's a he though :P:D )

I think it's so great that you cut holes in the divider so the smaller fish can swim back and forth!

You have such a great selection of fish, Fang.

Thanks for sharing.
