Justin White's Second Aquarium
Name: Justin "seiji" White.
Tank Details: 55 Gallon Wal-Mart special which has turned out to be a really nice tank.
The Fish: 1 blush golden angel fish, 1 marble angel fish, 1 plecostomus, 4 koolie loaches, 4 albino cory cats, 2 peppered cory cats, 2 bleeding heart tetras, 4 zebra danios(2 long fin, 2 short), 6 red serpae tetras, 3 black skirt tetras, 1 female blue gourami, 1 dwarf gourami, 2 white cloud mountain minnows, 2 turquoise austrailian rainbows, and one very large comet goldfish.
Comments: I know the goldfish is a cold water fish but I had
no choice. He was a rescue case. My baby sister won him at a county
fair and had him in a cereal bowl. The poor thing was less than an
inch long and wouldn't move, just sit there and twitch. He is now
5" long and very happy.
The tank has medium size natural colored gravel about 2" thick.
There is a combination of live and plastic plants, large and small
polyresin driftwood and some lare rocks for the koolies to hide
under. There is an external power filter that came with the
aquarium that really does a great job. I feed them Wardley tropical
flakes with color enhancers, Wardley shrimp pellets, and Wardley
sinking algae disk for the loaches, corys, and pleco. As a
treat, about once a week I give them two cubes of freeze dried
tubifex worms, which the koolies and corys actually come up to
the top to eat. The background is just a simple roll out background
on the outside of the tank. This was my first tank over 29
gallons, but was also just the begining.
