New tank lighting video
« on: November 15, 2010, 08:44:48 PM »

Hi folks,

  I just got a new Marineland Double Bright LED light for my goldfish tank and I love it! The color and shimmer effects are so natural looking. Here's a short and very shaky (sorry about that) video of it. My fish are doing great, the plants have just started to be happy. I can't wait to get everybody into their new 65 gal acrylic tank. That should happen within the next month.

This video was taken on the 13th.

For comparison, here is a video from 7/24, about 3 1/3 months ago. You can really see how much my fish have grown and how the java ferns have started to fill out in the other video compared to this.( You may want to resize it just a touch.)

I must say again, I never was a goldfish person before but I love how active and social they are. My tetras never race to one of the tank to greet me like these guys do.  Grin

I'll post some new pictures when they are all set up in their new, bigger home.

And now for the pizza resistance!(sorry, I don't speak French) The new light on the new 65 gal acrylic tank! So much better than the 29gal glass tank and with any luck, they won't outgrow this one. Sometimes it looks like a cube of water magically sitting there and spilling  Smiley

I will forever be faithful to acrylic aquariums, no more glass for me.  Smiley I'd post pics but my camera takes better video than pictures so here's a little clip.

For some reason I'm having trouble seeing it.
I've tried 3X's now! Undecided


Ok Scratch that!  I see it now!!  I guess I didn't wait long enough for it to load.
That's a gorgeous set up!  Your fish are beautiful! Cheesy
I have the same versa glass tops and the same LED light fixture on my tank too!
I LOVE it! Smiley

Thanks for the compliments Smiley

My favorite fish has to be the red oranda that I named King Richard because I thought it was a Lionhead lol. The overall as well as head growth over the last 4 months has been amazing. I am a little worried though that it may grow to the point where it really affects his (or her) vision. We shall see.

Ooh, trimming the wen? That sounds scary! I was nervous enough just taking a pair of tweezers to an anchor worm! I was very lucky though because that was the only one I ever found on the fish and I understand those things can be a nightmare.

Yes, think of it as a haircut...LOL! I guess it doesn't hurt the fish at all!
The guy used cuticle scissors on the video I saw. Cheesy

Sure, it's not that hard to do it, BUT, you need to be steady, and careful so that you won't cut away too much so that his eyes will look like they're hanging out on the sides of the head Wink

Besides, if you don't feel like you could do it yourself, please avoid it. You should never perform surgery or injections on your fish unless you have complete understanding for it and stay calm!

adorable fishies great setup. acrylic is my favorite too but they so expensive in size tanks i want i am waiting for one to show up on craigs list.. i have a 55 gal acrylic tank listed on craigs because my gold fish kept bumping into the tubes in middle for fish to swim through that connect each 25 gal side. i have the same lighting on my 90 gallon and my 75 gallon and i loveeeeeeeeee it. i would recommed these lights to anyone who doesnt want alot of algae because since i got them it doesnt grow much in my tank, i guess because there is no heat from them?
