Big Tank

Recommended Posts

I have an 8' x 3' x 3' tank with an undertank sump for filtration of approx 6' x 2' x 2' so altogether it's quite substantial.

It has always been tropical in the past as I had a giant Mbu puffer named Douglas.

Sadly Douglas died a while ago and the tank looked a bit empty with just his pals in it - rainbows,angels etc.

So the decision was made to rehome the trops into two 4 foot tanks and the giant tank is now a fancy goldfish tank smile.gif

It is very hard to photograph it in one frame but I hope you can see the goldfish 'mansion' on these shots -

That looks like heaven, plain and simple. I could die happy sitting in front of a tank like that, watching the goldies swim by in their paradise.

There is a few fish I would love to net for my aquarium. You are living my dream right now. :9

In the first pic, the Calico Lionhead (?) that is picking at the rock on the bottom left. That is my dream fish definitely.

Thanks for all the lovely comments folks.

We have calculated the gallonage to just under 600 gallons,that includes the sump of course.
