Default 55 galon

Almost all setups I see are based on green color. So for mine I tried to add some natural red. I put a big plastic Red Ledwica in the middle of the tank. Also add a natural red plant and a red rock standing upright. The gravel is very small rocks (the smallest I could get), mixing 1 bag of dark brown colored bag per 2 of white. Also added some streaks of bigger riverlike rocks. Finally I added a flat yellow rock. Half of my plants are plastic, half are natural.

Default Re: Just purchased a 55 Gal. tank

Thanks Gillian ...I love to take pictures of my fish but they're not very cooperative! Individual pictures are easier than a group photo!!!

Default Opinion on Decor, Please

I've just finished the decor in my 55 gal. and my Cichlid tank... as if it's ever really finished! I've attached pictures. I seem to like pots in my tanks, and I like the large pot in my 55 gal. tank but I'm wondering if it's too large. I realize that I may have to remove it when my fish are fully grown(especially the Balas) but for now, I like it. Do you think it looks out of proportion? I had intended to use rocks in my Cichlid tank, but space is an issue or will be soon. I've provided hidey holes but they seem to prefer the silk fern, so I may just add another, and forget the rocks. Opinions would be great!!!

Finally! I can add my 75G to this thread.
Currently I have 5 Yoyo loaches, 2 Siamese Algae Eaters and 3 Zebra Danios in there. Plan to add another 3 Zebra Danios and 1 Gold Gourami.

Default Re: Large Tanks (55 to 75 gallon)

I have to thank my wonderful wife for this birthday present. We finally have a 55gal tank. She helped me with the initial set up and the aquascaping...as you can see from the pic...I would say she did a wonderful job!! The stats...

Topfin 60 filter, a 200 watt heater, a whisper 40 air pump pushing bubbles thru an airstone in an ornament, and 2 4" disc air stones. We keep the tank at about 78 degrees, we're still stocking the tank since we're consolidating a 10 gal and a 28 gal tank.

We currently have
7 corys,
1 pleco,
6 mickey mouse platys,
1 betta,
1 golden algae eater (think he's chinese )
1 powder blue dwarf gourami,
3 mystery snails (blu, blk, ivo)
7 cardinal tetras (will soon be 10 by Sunday)
6 Long finned Serpae tetras (waiting to move in tomorrow)
8 ghost shrimp (at last count)

I plan on putting an additional Topfin 40 filter on the other side of the tank, and a couple more plants.

The only "bigger" occupant right now is the pleco, and I don't foresee anyone else growing exceptionally large. I think I'm fairly safe on the numbers versus the size of the tank. Anyone have any insights on this? Also, I'm using Aqua-Glo fluorescent lights right now...and the fish look amazing under them. Sorry for the long post...but I'm really excited about this tank!!!
