    Default New fish tank setups

    So the tank was leaking last month and had to make an emergency change for my crayfish tank. I moved it to a 20 gallon long tank. A ton of little things in there but that's because they need independent hiding spots or they fight. 2 small internal filters in this tank and also a small hang on the back filter. Now it needs a little cleaning. Even though I moved some ornaments and gravel with good bacteria, it still had a brown algae bloom a few days after the change. Seems to be caught up now, just needs to clean the last of the brown algae out of there.




    Since my older tank is gone, and a little spare room on my dresser, I added another 20 long tank. This one I decided to go almost all natural, and will go there 100% after the tank is fully settled. The squared off hut in the back is fake, but the rest of the rocks are real, and I bought some nice live plants online. The plants are good and healthy for the tank and the fish. It will look much better when I get rid of the fake, and put some more plants in there and let them all have fun in a natural environment! The orangeish looking fish (I got 2 of each), are Dwarf Red Gourami's. The black fish are Black Skirt Tetra's. Then last, and usually at the bottom but hungry, are 2 Cory Catfish. There are also 3 small snails in there somewhere to also help with some algae.



    Which one ya like better??

    Not at all. The phone video picks up the filter noise up close like that. Now I'm sitting about 5 feet away and don't even hear it unless I pay attention. I like the little waterfall sound too!!
