Re: 55 gallon freshwater tank

Nice tank, good call on the black khulin loaches a lot more active then banded ones for some weird reason.

Re: 55 gallon freshwater tank

Cool tank! I hope that down the line I can get into fish again. I still have my 29g that I'm "keeping up with." Basically, I'm just maintaining it until all of the fish die out because I just don't have the time or the money right now to continue to build it up, get new fish, etc.

The four fish still in there are a huge rainbow shark who I've had for 10.5 years, and 3 zebra loaches who I've had for about 6 years.

Re: 55 gallon freshwater tank

I will do my best to get some once I get back in town on Tuesday.

He's a tough fish. He has managed to survive ick outbreaks, extended power outages which got the tank all nasty, and he even lived in a pitcher of water with two other fish for a while after a hurricane lol.

Re: 55 gallon freshwater tank

I'll try my best to get a picture. I may look for an old picture if I can find one though. He's become more secretive as he's gotten older and hangs out in a big piece of driftwood most of the time. Very difficult to get an extended look at, much less a picture.

Re: 55 gallon freshwater tank

Well I managed to get a decent picture of the Rainbow Shark. More difficult than I would have thought. The second I turn the room light on, he hides. So I left the light off and crawled in the room, but he still saw me and went into his log. Then, he saw me crouching below the desk so he would poke his head out every 5-10 seconds and if I was still there he would go back in. I had to lay completely on the floor beside the desk in the dark for him to come out and not see me. Hence the weird angle of the picture lol.

Anyway, excuse the poor picture quality. It was on my phone and I had to zoom, which makes the quality even worse. And also excuse how bland the tank is. Like I said before, I'm just maintaining it until the fish die (which may never happen at this rate). There's not much up top because the only fish that are left are bottom-dwelling fish.
