PotatoFish Posted August 8, 2022 Share Posted August 8, 2022 I've been lurking around a while and have become a bit more active in the forum lately. I currently reside here in South Korea, and here's a picture of the tank (17gal) in our living room. It is in the process of "conversion" from a goldfish tank. After failing to save our goldfish (Loppy) and dojo loach (Jojo Dojo) from ich (long story), I had to break the news to my kid. Little Man (4yo) was really, REALLY saddened by the loss. He was trying so hard to swallow his tears, but he got so happy when I showed him old videos of Loppy and company. People that say, "It's just a fish" can...(keeping it G-rated) go kick rocks. We had a burial and everything. "Bye fishies! I'll see you again, someday!" I decided to change things up to a nice community tank of smaller fish. I've dubbed it "The Boys" tank since all the livebearers are male. Not all have names yet. The Boys kicked BBA butt (shared that story here), and I'm REALLY enjoying being able to keep a wider variety of plants. The fish and inverts all get along peacefully, and the corydoras get targeted feeding if I see their bellies aren't filling up after a feeding. Currently inside: 1 gold dust molly (tentative: B.B.Asaurus-Rex) 1 variatus platy (Blimpy Major) 1 teacup platy (Blimpy Minor) 1 yellow cobra guppy 1 green fancy guppy with a giant black tale 1 otocinclus (Otto Von Bismarck II) 1 mystery snail 3 cherry shrimp 3 Amano shrimp 4 bronze corydoras (Cory Corporation) 6 zebra danios ("The Jets") -Big Bertha (largest, striped with a giant spot) -2 with striped patterns -2 with spot patterns -The Grey (semi-albino/lighter striped) 1 Army of mini-ramshorn snails Plants: Crushed Coral Substrate Water Sprite (in substrate) Water Sprite (floating) Dwarf Water lettuce (floating forest) Cabomba (planted) Anubias petite (on rock) Anubias barteri (on rock) Java fern (on rock) Pennywort (in substrate) Pests: Black Beard Algae (dying a slow death) A bit of a long intro...but being verbose is my modus operandi. If you're curious about anything, I'm happy to share what worked and didn't work for me, but I'm no expert...just an enthusiast on the journey. 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
