Aquarium Pictures (including Mr. Crowntail, Big Red, and Tokiko)

I know I just posted pictures of Big Red the other day but oh well :p. I feel bad because I don't post as many pics of my freshwater fishies.

The community tank:



Mickey:



Mr. Crowntail has a new spot:



Checking out the camera:



Being chased by a White Cloud Minnow!!! Just kidding:



Mickey again:





Tokiko, my African Dwarf Frog:





More to come...

A tank that will house a Dwarf Pufferfish in a couple days...it's pretty empty now:



Except for Malaysian Trumpet Snails, lol:



Big Red:



He got mad at me for taking pictures and went to hide in his shell:



Sorry, the pictures aren't that great =/. I was having a lot of issues today...grr. I'll do another photoshoot in a few weeks or something which will include pictures of some of the fish I missed like Hermione the clownfish and Felix the cory cat.

Wow, you take really good pics of your tanks! How do you get them to come out so clear? Everytime I try to get pics of my fish and frogs, it just comes out really blurry.

Def. post pics when you get your dwarf puffer! My mom use to have one when she kept fishtanks and it was always my favorite fish of hers.

Is the betta in with the other fish? Or are the tanks just next to each other?
Your tanks always look so nice. I don't know how you do it. We always have algae growing. And Oscars tank -well that is green a week after I clean it! I can't wait until it's warm enough outside for him.
Do the plants keep it cleaner? Are there plants that fancy tail gold fish won't eat?

Thank you! I have four tanks that are running plus two that are being set up right now. And then of course there's the quarantine/hospital/acclimation tank.

Thanks . I'm guessing you mean the tank in the first picture? That's a 10-gallon.

First I turn off all the lights except the tank lights. Then I turn off the flash and take tons of pictures, lol. Photographing at an angle is always helpful and then you can avoid glares.

The betta is in the community tank, yep.

Thanks! Yeah, plants help with algae and do keep the water cleaner. Of course, fertilizer can cause crazy algae growth if you use too much so it's important not to over-use it. Frequent water changes also help . Floating plants are the best for controlling algae since they tend to suck up a lot of nutrients.

For goldfish I usually recommend hornwort, duckweed, water sprite, and anacharis. They'll probably eat them but they grow fast and are cheap so it's not a big deal. Hornwort is the least likely to be eaten out of those four and even if it's nibbled on it grows fast enough that little damage is caused. You could also try Java ferns...most fish don't like to eat them. Apparently the leaves taste bitter. Java moss is another good choice but I have no idea if it'd be eaten. Oh, and you could also try an Anubias species...that's another plant fish don't generally eat.

Thanks ^_^. I have two power compacts...one on each side. So the whole tank is pretty much equally lit.
