looks very nice. you should get some nice wood or rock decorations in there though, seems like tons of empty space. also are you sure thats 40 gal? because it looks pretty damn big.
i have a 29 gal tank in my room, unfortunately it got some horrible disease and killed off all my fish except for one. however before that, i had
-7 tiger barbs
-7 black neon tetras
-1 clown pleco
-1 siamese algae eater
-1 bamboo shrimp
-1 golden gourami
the only fish that survived was the gourami. i started adding medicine into the water but it was too late for all the fish . just waiting a few weeks now to make sure the infection is gone for good before i start adding some new fish. i dont have any live plants though, although i might get some in the future.
the gourami is very cool though, he was my favorite fish and i'm glad he survived. he was the biggest and brightest one at the store, and he's so interesting to watch. he's always on the move, always doing something. lately i've been trying to teach him to let me pet him too lol. i don't have a pic but here's a pic of a golden gourami from google:
I've always wanted this pair of blue gouramis my store has but haven't gotten around to it. I'm actually been looking for some drfitwood, my fish store has some but because of shipping to the store the price is ridiculous
but maybe I'll try the internet.
That picture is at an angle where it looks huge but the right end of the tank is pretty much at the far right of the picture, just barely cut off. It's a 40 gallon breeder, 36"x18"x16".
Tank sounds pretty nice, I'v always wanted to do a planted tank. Maybe ill set up my 29g and do one. Right now i have a 55g with 3 red belly pirahans, and a common pleco.
The plecos name is Bubbles, and the pirhans names are Pinky, pancake, and goblin. All of them are camara shy so its hard to get a good picture, they range in size from like 5-7in.
Thats awesome! What do you feed them? I bought my tank used and the guy before me had a red bellied pacu in it. I really like the planted aspect though, I feel it makes it look natural, balances out the water chemically, and gives fish places to hide. Although that driftwood in there looks like it gives them an awesome place to hide.
anyway, i used to have a tank when i was a child, i dont anymore but the idea of taking a few hits and sitting in front of a tank to watch them does sound interesting
Its really chill, like an entirely different world right in front of you when your stoned.
Snails are a trip to watch too.
