As of Saturday,November 8th I added 6 new additions to the fishy family - but on Thursday November 6th all tree cichlids went to their new home in a 75 gallon aquarium with other cichlids.
The newest additions bring the fish family up too... 7 not counting feeder fish which would raise the amount by at least 10.The count would also be higher if I wasn't for the passing of Jesus , my beloved betta would passed away on the 2nd of November. R.I.P Jesus
3 black skirt tetras where added to create more of a 'school' for Bingo the current black skirt tetra who lived with the cichlids, he seems much happier to be swimming with his own kind.The 3 new tetras are very small compared to Bingo..or maybe Bingo is just huge but they are young fish.One have a very pronounced jaw - the perfect model.
Three peppered corydoras where also added at the same time.Some of the cutest fish I have even owned.They have such cute little faces and swim everywhere, always looking for food.They are supposed to get to 4" or 8cm every site says something different, but I am hoping that they do get to be big.
The aquarium is H: 46cm L:75 cm W: 32 cm or 28.73 U.S. gallons, 108.77 liters or 23.93 U.K gallons. Equipped with Eclipse build in filter hood with light and heater I am hoping to soon add more inhabitant to the tank.
Purple gravel is soon to be changed hopefully to something more 'natural' (oh how the parents have no style). I will also get around to planting a few types of live plants - right now the tacky plastic ones are providing shelter, along with terra cotta pots and gnome hat.The area is also furnished with drift wood and a granite decoration.
The tetras swim their laps in the strong current going in one direction, this current have ruined my plan for a group of female bettas, in less I can figure out how to break the current a bit, but I wouldn't want to take way the tetras 'treadmill'
Just look at that JAW
Some 'schooling' action
They move to fast to get a good clear picture.
If you haven't already guessed I am going for a South American tank. Comments and suggestions to anythings, and to other this to add please post.
