Here's mine. I have had it for about 16 months. It is on autopilot now. No significant algae, CO2 injected, auto-fed. I really pay no attention to this anymore since I got into saltwater other than maintenance to keep it clean. This is a 50-gallon sea clear. My first tank. I have a handful of cardinals, gourami, algae eaters, snails, guppies. they have been there for at least 6 months. I haven't purchased anything in a while since I went into saltwater. Then moved to a 180g reef tank that I love. I don't know but I kind of want to take this fresh water tank down. Tell me what I can do to keep my interest in freshwater.

Just the typical drilled 75 with my Oscar, 3 Blood Parrots, and some places. I have always loved Oscars and have had many of them. I got this guy at 1.5" now he is somewhere around 9-10". I have actually been hardcore working on upgrades to this tank. Working on redoing the sump. Just painted the stand and will be blacking out the "woodgrain" on the tank. New lids and lights coming for it.

90 gallon Convict Cichlids, 2 pairs 39B59231-BD19-438F-852D-B0110A1EA2FD.jpeg

The Convict tank is newer and I think I have 2 pairs that should start breeding soon. Don’t have the African tank setup anymore.
Both are just basic setup, nothing fancy.

Beautiful! Discus is one of my favorites. Never did get to setup a tank for some though.
My 50 gallon Discus tank taken just before going Saltwater. Those were raised from small 1-2 inch fry in that planted tank.

12 gallon long I just planted. High tech w/ low maintenance plants, i'm over carpets and dutch style trimming. :p

I haven't decided what to stock it with yet.

Twinstar 900EA light, Oasefiltosmart 100 canister, inline CO2 diffuser.

I'm slowly setting up a reef tank and this forum has been an invaluable source of info!
