Valentine love aquarium

Valentine Love Aquarium Kiss
[/b]

Sorry I don't have any pictures right now Tongue

I made my aquarium a love aquarium. It's gravel is red, pink, and white. It has 3 peices of pink coral and 1 piece of yellow coral, white anonome with pink tips, 1 large white rock with a hole in the middle (Cari, my Fantail, loves going in and out if it), a pink fake plant next to the big rock, and two seahorses kissing.

I only have 2 fish right now, I am a begginner so I will get more soon. The 2 fish I do have love the aquarium. My fish are Cari the Fantail + Kenny the Plecostomus.

How do you think this aquarium would look?

It is a 10 Gallon but my fish don't mind. They are both only 1-2 inches long.



I'll try to upload pictures now:)

I would strongly suggest you getting a 20 gallon when you can. Those fish will grow. A lot. as pretty as your tank is, 1-2 inches quickly grows into 4 or 5 inches, ad by then its too uncomfortable. I know some people have heard that 'goldfish will grow to match their coontainer' but you have to remember, they were once wild, and didnt have containers. One more thing mankind has done to eff up the planet.

just some food for thought.

I agree with Kat that you will need to get a bigger tank.
The goldfish and pleco can grow to be big!!! Maybe even over a foot each! Shocked
Plecos really need a tank over 100 gallons or they will live a very short life. Smiley

Cari, welcome to the forum.
I agree with Mindemae and Katarine, you will need a bigger tank, averadge rule 10gallons per fish. And I speak out of experience, not only because I read this rule all the time in some threads.

Eventually you'll browse through other posts on here, but I'll mention shortly that we bought our 2 GF and they live in a 10 gallon tank. Lately we had a few problems because they grew and the tank became OVERSTOCKED: Some time the water got cloudy, later the pH was not stable. I managed to recognize the problem very quick, the only thing to keep our fishies healthy is frequent waterchanges, about 15% every 4th day until the big tank (we finished the set up yesterday) is ready to have our fish put in. We only have our fishies since March this year, they were small, about 2 inches , max. Now they are min 3 times as big.

Nevertheless, I'd love to see some pics of your romantic tank Wink
