Details on aquarium:

The dimentions will hopefully be 6′ x 20″ x 18″

The aquarium i am currently interested in is a package deal. It comes with the tank (obviously, lol), a stand, for filtration it comes with an Aqua FX SPR2200 or RESUN SP-3800L, a 300 watt heater and a 6 foot single Dalbarb for lighting. I also want a UV light to use at night. i want to use black non-living sand. It will hopefully be a natural looking tank with driftwood and live plants. For fish I am not too sure yet, but am hoping to get 2 dojo loaches (1 gold 1 normal), guppies (currently have 4, 2 males 2 females, plus any babies they might have between now and when i get my tank), 4 dwarf gouramis (1 male and one female original and one male and one female of honey/gold variation), an assortment of angelfish (not sure of colour variations yet, but i am definetally wanting at least one marble) and a group of 5-10 neon tetras. although neons are natural prey of angelfish, i am hoping that with the cover of driftwood and plants along with the sheer size of the tank (well, I think it’s pretty big, considering i’m not exactly what you would call a professional aquarist!) they will be able to live together alright. if i get too many guppies i will give some away to friends/relavites and trade the rest to the local fish store for shop points/credit. Or, I could just sell them in the paper!

Pregnant guppy update:

Well, one of my guppies is still pregnant, the one with the red tail. For a female she has lots of finnage and a very vibrant red colour that goes up along the top of her tail to the fin on her back. She is very pretty and i am excited to see how the babies turn out. however, i have some doubts. She has been like this for well over the average month and is very fat. her gravid spot is still very large. I am wondering if she will even make it through, let alone have her babies. Death is uncommon but possible in pregnant guppies if things don’t go right. Let’s all hope everything will turn out fine!

New tank item and supplies:

I have justgone to the LFS this afternoon. I got some freeze dried bloodworms as an easier alternative to my frozen food (I have frozen bloodworms and frozen baby brine shimp in my freezer atm), some more goldfish food and a 40cm silk plant. very nice! Only it’s too tall for my 38cm tank, and that’s without the gravel! Oh well, it just sticks out the top.

Will keep you all updated on everything!
