I setup a new look for the 15 gallon tank I keep in my room at school. The stocking is odd, not recommended for anybody who doesn't know aquariums well. The plants are live, anacharis. The snails are trumpets, and one pond snail I haven't seen for months and is aparently still alive and well. The white star is a vacation feeder since the fish love them. Sorry so blurry.

Xander, rainbow shark, has grown half an inch the past two weeks since I got him, he'll be ready for a bigger tank soon

group, Caddis and Aphid (sick fantails) are at school until better, then will join the other goldfish in their new pond, they really are smaller than the pictures look

single buenos aires tetra, a schooling fish, but he was the only one the store had, he seems to be getting along fine though as its not an aggressive tank

Hey, I've never seen or thought of a tube in the tank before! That is a nice item. Have you used it in the past? The tetras really go through, huh? That is all I have just now, 16 tetras - neon, pristella, and black neon. Very nice set up. I tried live plants a few times, about 7 years ago. All I succeeded in doing was making a great big mess. :rolleyes: So I stick with the fake plastic stuff now. I like what you have there.

Thanks. The tubes are regular connecting tubes for a gerbil/hamster cage. If you get tubes without holes in them you can build them up outside the tank as if building a tube run for a gerbil and fill them with water so the fish can swim up and out of the tank in the tubes. I'm waiting to see all three black tetras swim through the tubes like ducks in a row.
