here is a picture of my tank

l joined a local fish forum and l have met some wonderful people in my area who loves the fish hobby as much as l do, l have been given great deals on live plants which some where given to me free. if l got them at the fish store it would cost a bundle.

l got some guppies on Saturday from a member of the fish forum who breeds guppies and original he was going to give me 30 guppies for 50 cents each, which would be $15.00, then he said the other day he would give them to me for $10 for them all. well, l went to see him and he told me that since the guppies where very tiny that he would give them to me for free :P l saved a ton of money since at the local fish store one guppy is $7.00 :wub:

here are the pics;

Looks awesome! i have a fancy for fish also and have three tanks, atm two are empty (due to deaths) but the other has 3 blue dolphins in it, which are awesome!

Before that I had electric yellows and some bombardo's

But I have a major passion for the gorgeous guppies around! they're stunning!

I love fish tanks that have landscaping with layered levels of gravel and rocks they look beautiful. One of my local petshops has the most gorgeous setups and specialises in fish.

Very nice Birdluv. I love looking at a nice fish tank. It mellows you out & can make you feel soooooo relaxed. You have a lovely set up & your fish are gorgeous. Good job.

Looks like a great tank. You going to put a background on it? Are you only having the guppies and the panda cories?

Heres my guys; about 18 months now. They were about an inch long when we got them- they replaced my old Oscar when I had to put him down :) Had him for 8 years.

(brown stuff is the bubbles floating up- not really brown though?)

And the new addition to the family- guess they reckon if I could have one they could too! Alas only 1 as when I was moving the eggs/rocks I turned my back and the parents got stuck into them when they were uncovered
