    Tank Showcase
    Show us your tank and get feedback
    It is simple. Post pictures of your tank or tanks, and we as a community will talk about it. This is a good way to get to know the active aquarium hobbyist on here, and maybe learn something knew. I would love to offer a prize for best tank but I don't know if that's allowed.... so. Enjoy. I shall start by posting pics of my tank, feel free to ask any questions.

    HAVE FUN AND BE NICE!

    Your tanks are gorgeous @George Duke-Cohan, I wish I could grow plants like that! The layout of the 60L is especially nice. The only thing that would bug me is the barcode sticker on the glass! :D

    Same, it bugs the hell out if me as well. But I tried peeling it and it is a tough one. I need to use WD40 on it but I have ran out :(
    Thanks you for the kind comments. Maybe I should make a post on growing aquatic plants.... :rolleyes:

    Please post more pics of your goldfish so I can drown in cuteness. :Shy

    Hey @LinznMilly could you post pics of your tanks. I would love to see your setup. I am sure it looks like a slice of perfection. :D

    I am ready to be amazed...

    Well, since you asked! The fabulous five have a 450L tank with two 2000L/H filters plus pre-filters, one at each end of the tank.

    Ember is my big, orange oranda, he's about 5 years old as is Ivy my blackmoor. They had babies together 3 years ago which was an adventure for me raising the fry!

    My two calicos are about 2 years old, they are Tigerlily & Peppermint, also known as the goth twins as they both have black lipstick :D I was convinced they were girls when I got them (hence the names) but they are actually both boys. I refuse to change the names though :p

    And last is Sunset, who is nearly 3 years old and is from a breeder (the others are all pet shop fish). Her breeder had some fry from her and then decided to go in a different direction with her breeding program so rehomed Sunset to me. She has buckets of personality and is very greedy (even for a goldfish!), she will slurp loudly at the surface of the water when she sees me to demand food and she likes to take food from my hand :)

    I love them! The black lipstick is funny, but cute. Goth twins!!!

    They are so cute. The fact that sunset "demands" food is amazing. I love the personality, you can almost see it in the eyes. Thank you for posting

    Your tanks are looking really great, George.

    You'll be disappointed. :oops:

    I've posted the 200ltr before, on the other thread, and I'm starting to rescape the 120ltr, for which I intend to do a journal thread.

    This is the 200ltr;

    The 120 isn't fit to be pictured. :Bag

    It looks good. Very nice. Love the neon tetras. Can't wait to see your 120 liter.

    Here is an update on my 60 liter tank. Had to rescape due to the need for more direct swimming space and new plants. A58BC506-12FB-47CD-9AF9-26CFA28A805D.jpeg 1784CC2F-EECC-4125-BEE1-ECDC19055138.jpeg

    I still think that this tank is amazing. I live how natural it looks. You should be proud of it.
