setting up my 6x2x2

Recommended Posts

Picked this up the other day.... will look awesome when it is all up and going! Eheim canister sitting underneath and I will eitherget a second canister or just build a sump. Will probably end up upgrading to an 8x2x2 for the americans but will see. Will have two sailfin plecos, 1 red tiger oscar, one silver tiger oscar, and a lutino red oscar. There is a clown loach in there at the moment which was a freebie with the tank. Also considering a red tail shark and school of silver sharks but will wait and see on that. I have two nice rivulatus I contemplated but then got paranoid and wussed out. Has anyone here had success with keeping rivs and oscars together?

The tank will have multiple pieces of driftwood and rocks, just havent got them in yet.

Also just to add- huge thanks to pet city and agenof aquariums. Both awesome places. Cant believe I had never been to pet city before- now I have been twice in a month! Been going to AOA for years though! Going to be a more frequent visitor from now on though I think :)

Was second hand and a good deal imo considering everything that came with it. I noticed it was warped before I bought it, but easily fixed- can deal with that later :) Have a nice 3.5ft long branchy piece of drift wood to go in it so far, need to track down some nice big bits of driftwood as well as some nice rocks

I am now a huge fan of those rock walls. Just bought another one, a 3fter, to go in the back of the tank for my axolotls.

Wood will make that tank for sure! But I reckon you'll need some greenery too.

Looking forward to pics! :)

I already have the rivs, just in a different tank for now. Will see :) spose I could try some silk plants. Probably will try a few live first, don't care if they destroy them really, so worth a try. Maybe I will have gentle, nice oscars ;)

Stuck a few more rocks in today, just kinda stuck em in anywhere. These rocks are quite small so will find something a bit bigger down the track but they'll do for now :) there is also a large piece of goldvinenin there which has decided it does not want to sink -.- the longest point/length of this piece is 3.5ft. Cant really see in the pics but it will be an awesome piece i rekon.

A friend of mine told me soon after I took these pics that the plant in the front left is toxic, so it is out.... also, the bio balls floating in the top will come out, just didnt know where to put them haha. "Meh just throw em in the tank for now"
