Howdy from Charlotte! (updated with pics)

Recommended Posts

It all started September of 2019 when some sixth graders at the school I work for decided to get me a betta for my birthday.  Fast forward a year and I have two tanks in my office (20 long and 40 breeder) and 4 at home (two 20's, 36 bowfront and a 75).  Here are the current contents:

20 long - It's currently cycling.  It was broken down a month ago.  It will house my 9 pseudomugil gertrudae and 3 peacock gudgeons which are currently in a 10 gallon.  It is dirted and I am still adding plants here and there.  The "floating" plants are what I will be carpeting with.


10 gallon who will be getting upgraded soon to the 20 long.  It's a tad bare now because I moved some plants over to the 20 long.


40 breeder - This is also dirted and has DIY CO2.  It currently has 6 albino corydoras, a Siamese algae eater, an albino bristlenose pleco and a pair of Bolivian rams with a lot of various plants, rocks and driftwood.  I have 7 celebes rainbowfish currently in quarantine that will be going in there.


20 #1 - This is another dirted tank that has 5 (soon to be a dozen) pseudomugil luminatus and a female apistogramma cacatuoides (the male died about a month ago).  Also has various plants and a DIY CO2.


20 #2 - This one will be rescaped.  It currently has 6 white clouds and an apistogramma agasizzii.  It sits next to 20 #1 and will share the DIY CO2.

No picture because it's ugly! lol

36 bowfront - This one is not dirted but has root tabs for the plants and a DIY CO2.  Fish-wise it has 10 black harlequin rasboras, a dozen habrosus corydoras, 5 kuhli loaches, a Siamese algae eater, a bristlenose pleco, a female apistogramma borellii and a female apistogramma breitbinden (they are besties) and some cherry shrimp who love to hang out on the sponge filter.  Some of the background plants died, but there are some "saplings" that you can't see behind the spiderwood.


75 - It's currently empty while I finish scaping it.  Currently it has four pieces of driftwood and three swords and it also dirted.  It will be room temperature because I want to put native fish in there.  Mountain redbelly daces and some sort of darter are what I'm thinking at the moment.


I also have a 2.5 gallon that has a few golden wonder killifish fry in it.  Both parents died recently.
