So finally!!!! here are some pics of my new tank and my lovely fish
The tank is around 60gal... we got it made specially, it is square about 3feetx3feet so the fish have a lot of room to swim around. As we have no wall space (as most of our walls are windows, we have made it into a coffee table.
It sits on some 2 inch solid wood as a stand with some closed cell foam (sleeping mats) to seperate teh tank from the wood. We built a frame to support the lid (isnt sitting directly on the tank and has rubber buffers) to keep virations to a minimum.
The comet you see is Fluffy... the other two, I am not sure if they are comets or commons... I suspect they are a cross...
I rescued these fish after the big earthquake in Chch recently... I never expected tehm to be so much work and DEFINATELY didnt expect them to be so rewarding... (i rescued a human too but he is turning into a nightmarer... that is another story though lol)... I am a sucker for waifs and strays, but always the best of care at my house if I possibly can
First pics are before we built the frame, the others are after
If you can tell me wheher the smaller fishies are comets or commons I would be grateful!
