GL’s multiple tank log
#1
Well this will be more fun than last time!
Been keeping fish for around 3 years now, after attempting a fishless cycle with fish food and not quite managing it. Along with some poor advice from our first lfs about stocking (please dont ever mix guppies and tiger barbs! My OH was mortified ?) and having a barney or two with them, we found a new lfs that helped us with finishing our cycle.

Anyway after getting everything sorted, 1 tank turned to 2 and now into 4, having quite possibly 300+ livebearer fry making the switch from fake plants to real about half way through, and having our apisto cacs breed, this is where we stand ?

Our current setup currently comprises of:
Juwel Vision 180l (my “OH’s” tank), Fluval U4
Fluval 100l (my tank), Fluval U3
54l Aquael (our first tank), Fluval U2
65l supafish (fry tank), filter from the aquael  ;D

And stocking:

180l Vision:
Female platies - Pearl (mum), Akoya (daughter), Pearl’s doppelgänger (daughter, nearly identical to Pearl but i know thw difference Wink ), Dolphie’s legacy and Half’n’half (my personal fave). Also a few fry still kicking about in there that need moved.
Apistogramma Cacatuoides - Bubba (male and a dad) and Stubbs (female)

100l Fluval:
Male platies - 4 unamed
Male plattails - Carl Weathers and Jesse “the body Ventura (brothers, platy swordtail crosses)
Apistogramma Cacatuoides - Jayne (male, Bubba’s son)

54l Aquael:
Male plattail - Arnie (the third brother)
Pseudomugil Signifer - Jeff and Billy (males, dont ask about the names!)
Trichogaster Labiosa - Honey (female, originally bought as a red female honey gourami, hence the name)
Bristlenose Pleco - Sarah Jessica Parker (female with a fabulous name according to my OH, i felt sorry for her (the BN) getting the name lol)

65l Supafish

Platy fry galore! (Must be around 30-40ish)

Anyway if you’ve got through that lot well done! I’d reward you with pics but I’m having a little trouble adjusting the sizes atm but I’ll work it out Smile

Right I'm up to date now, ready for the piccies when you've worked it out Smile
I love how so many of your fish are named. I think it's great.
About 2 years ago I raised 5 peppered Cory fry - these were the first ever fish I tried to breed anyway I said to my husband shall we name them? As it's our first success...he says Bob! Ok says me, what about the other 4? But he says 'no, just Bob'
Therefore we now have 10 Bob in our jewel primo! (Which will soon be 12 Bob when I add my new fry)
