Update on my 180 gallon planted fancy tank (pic heavy)

21 posts in this topic

It's been a while since I've done an update :)

Since removing the substrate, my fish have never been healthier. I'm still doing 90-100% water changes every 3 days, it's working really well for the tank. The tank is currently home to 3 short tail ryukins, 7 orandas, 7 Ranchu, a pearlscale, 3 bristlenose plecos and a handful of hillstream loaches.

Oh, and I have a baby! The culls are living in a pond tub outside, but I'm growing this little beauty out. It's a short tail calico ryukin, I'm so looking forward to watching it grow! It's now 6 weeks old.

Enjoy the pictures!

Thank you! :) yes, so much more! I had losses around Christmas and couldn't work out what the problem was initially. I removed he substrate and have had no issues since. I can see where all the poop is, and there's nowhere for anything to really build up. I think it actually looks nicer in this tank, too :)
