Upgrade to 53 Gallon tank (Pic-Heavy)

Recommended Posts

Finally bought a new 53 gallons tank for my goldies, love all the happy faces. Sadly my black moor couldn't make it, she passed away 2 days ago due to SB :(. But I'm glad that the others are fine. Bad camera *sigh.

Thank you !!! Any recommendation for the decoration ? I love real plants but goldies keep destroying them :(

nice upgrade :) Beautiful tank :) Anubias are very hardy plants for a goldfish tank :)

Also try running your cords and wires, air hoses down the corners so they're not so visible ;)

and not to be mean...

BUT...

I would recommend re homing a few of yours as your overstocked presently :( unless your planning on another tank or pond in the future ;)

Thanks for your advice , also should I put driftwood inside the tank ?

Im not a fan of real driftwood in a tank because it can decay. But I know many people on here that do keep it successfully.

But remember the more you add to the tank the less water your fish have and since your highly stocked number wise id hesitate on adding a lot more stuff.

Love your ryukin and comet btw.

I would leave the tank like it is and consider rehoming some of the current fish to lower your stocking levels. Any addition of decoration will displace the water your fish need.

Thanks, also is it ok if I direct all the currents to the surface so ?

I would have at least one current directed to the bottom so the poop moves toward the filters.

Wonderful tank and fishies! What kind of filters are those? Did you create that acrylic top? (I assume the lid/top is acrylic.)

I have 2 top filters with filtration material inside the boxes on top of the tank and 2 sponge filters run by air pump inside the tank. I bought the tank set this morning I didn't make it :P

Nice job! I would add more plants. You may have to try different kinds to see if they will leave any of them alone.

What kind of camera do you have? Cameras where you can control the shutter speed are tremendously useful, although you can still take good pics with point and shoot cams. :)

I'm using my nokia lumia, well I will try to work with the setting. I will try different plants to see if it's ok. Bad goldies,they rip off everything on their way rofl.

Congratulation! Gorgeous Goldfish!

I would like to ask you, do you have any problems with the plants on the surface, do Goldfish eat their roots?
