PLEASE VOTE!


We have 5 worthy entrants for Fishforums' January Tank of the Month Contest. View all the tanks and descriptions below and then go to top of page and click on your choice for TOTM

It’s best to view these awesome tanks on a computer screen or a tablet instead of a small phone screen.

Please DO NOT post any comments about specific tanks in this thread...such posts will promptly be deleted. This thread will be cleaned up occasionally for best readability.

I am new to aquariums and learned so much being part of this forum, still feel like a learner, but 6 months down the line here is my setup, 100ltr tank, stocked with fresh plants lower lever, upper level I have some artificial glass hanging baskets, which my fry love to hide in, I stock guppies and neon tetra, I have my first guppie fry now over 20 growing beautifully, but unfortunately can only upload one picture, even though I’d love to share how much they grown, and beautiful colours, I also have 3 Cory Dora, and assassin snails aswell as shrimp, I use sand only, I do my water changes usually every two weeks 50% but since the fry are growing I have started to do them sooner, I use a turkey baster to remove fish poop, and clean my glass, I have plant lighting and fish health lighting so use two bulbs, but I differ these throughout the day to prevent algae, but keep my fry at good health lighting.

I feed baby liquifry, flake food, /Cory shrimpwafer, and bloodworm twice a day, my parameters are Cl2 =0 ph = 6.8 KH = 6 GH = 8 NO2 = 0 NO3 = 25 temp 27

on my tank maintenance I only shake my plants and do not remove them, I also have moss balls, only clean the upper glass basket ones, I syphone over my sand, and my filtration system in a standard carbon filter but I put mineral rocks in, I also use filter pads in the back compartment, and two heaters, I have my pump on throughout the day, but use an oxygen stone throughout the night. I hope this is everything I have mentioned and not missed anything out, I am very proud what I have achieved as a beginner, I started my hobbie for my son with Autism, and wanted to create a sensory feeling for him, and always looking for new ideas or ways to improve my tank, and hope in the future we feel confident to expand with a larger tank.
