Let's see your tanks!

« posted: 5 years ago »
My tanks are boring, set up mainly for breeding. But I'd love to see everyone else's tanks.
Here is a picture of one of mine. Like I said, boring!

Well, I did forget to mention that it also is home to poltergeists. I guess that makes it interesting.

Is that one for dwarf seahorses? What is the other fish in there?

In the big seahorse tank, are the shells for feeding stations?

 ::)When I bought the long one I thought I was going to put the dwarf's in there, so I started to set it up, then I realized that I was going to have to shower that whole 36 inches with bbs  ??? and I said to myself, are you crazy! What a mess this is going to be! Cleaning this monster long tank of 12g is going to be a %$^%*^ Soooooooo I changed my mind as I do very often and decided to just make it a tank with soft corals...I figure if I buy a little at a time, it will be a long term deal. So I had some micro algae that I bought, and I planted it in the tank, then the lfs was having a sale on salt water mollies...now who would put a mollie in salt water...who else but me...actually we bought them for the hubby's tank because they were supposed to eat up all his hair algae. I believe they would have too, if this darn crab that he has didn't kill one as soon as we put them in, so the poor things were scared to death, and staying on the top of the tank all together. I felt so bad, I said lets just put them in the 12g, there's nothing in there anyway...so I did... :'( they went on to eat all the algae that I planted...but you know what? They were happy, the poor babies ;)...so instead of bringing them back to the fish store, I kept them...I now have 2 very pretty corals and 1 clam and 5 mollies who are so happy swimming all day, and eating off the big rock that has some really pretty green algae growing on it...how's that for a long story about a fishtank...this is the way it is now, I was too lazy to take a picture yesterday, but now you forced my hand...lol

Yes, how'd you guess...they love eating from the shell's...that's when I don't have time to target feed them...especially my female, Meenie...she just loves to hang onto the tube and watch the food go down, and then have me feed her special...she's a special gal...love them all!

Aren't you concerned about the horses getting their tails inside of the powerhead in the tank?  I would think that they are big enuf to fight the current and get their tail in there to anchor themselves and get their tails chopped.  I live by Murphys law ie.. Anything that can happen will happen- To ME!

I'm not worried about them getting their tail stuck, because I covered the power head with some tulle after I took the picture...I had just put that power head in and was planning on putting something over it, but couldn't find anything that covered it without stopping the flow. I finally found a piece of tulle I had from a left over wrapping that fit perfectly over the power head and let the water flow, and kept the tails out of the power head...Perfect for the job!
You have good eye's and thanks for letting me know, in case I didn't notice, you could have saved a tail...

Are seahorses happier with more visual stimulation?
  • I don't work with seahorses but I am interested in learning about them and maybe working with them someday.
