I recently did a some rearanging in my tank. I took out a rock structure and added a piece of drift wood, this made all the difference for the fish. The fish now zoom around all day an play, they hide every now and then, but not near as much. They love the new tank and so do I, so I am gonna let you see it so you can love it too!

Before

After!!!




Now with Java moss thanks to psyfalcon

The fish I thaught would die in a day. I got this little guy out of mercy. He had a severed headwhen I baught him and didn't move a lot... or at all. Now his head has healed up a lot and he is as active as can be, eats out of my hand, and is a healthy young catfish.


Here is a video of him(Fairbanks) playing with his little buddy(Daniel)

I also have one blue mystery snail who hapily cleans off my plants.

Fairbanks is about 2 inches long and Daniel is about an inch to an inch and a half long. The bad this is they will both get to 8 inches long, hopefully I will be out of the dorms and havee a larger tank by then.

Thank you for the compliment, my fish already have big heads because I tell them how awesome they are on a daily basis. Inmy opinion, only one freshwater fish looks pretier than they do, and that is the zebra pleco, the first thing I will buy when I get larger tank.

I really like the driftwood and dark substrate. It looks great and so do the fish! You must have happy fish! Cool video, too!

Are those real or fake rocks?

They are real rocks, and the fish love the new setup, they rarely hide anymore and are out at all hours!(they still have plenty of hiding spots)

As soon as I can get the pictures off my phone, I will have some very cute pictures of my fish "snuggling" together. They seem to be a great couple, and have gone through what I thaught was a maiting dance once(no information is available on their mating habits), it was very similair to that of corys. Theese cats are just amazing, and I can't wait until I can show everyone the pictures of them lying together.
