Got my first big(ish) tank - a little excited.....

Recommended Posts

Finally got the 5ftr I've been chasing!

Tank, stand, hood, canister, pumps, rocks..... All for $250

Needs a good clean, and the hood wants staining, but I'm stoked

Can't wait to get it going, and looking good enough to not feel embarrassed to share some pics

*very happy :-)

Will have bass and empire gudgeon initially

I love catching natives in the creeks, so will see what else I can find

Really rapt with the deal, stand looks great after a sand and a stain, filter is working great, and the tank cleaned right up

Now I just gotta control my impatience and let it cycle....... I really want to get stuff in there, but I don't want to kill them...

Feeling pretty good about the setup now. Plants are growing, fish are active and seem in good shape. The bass are getting boisterous now, and anything small enough becomes dinner. In fact, the greedy buggers take shrimp that I'm sure are nearly as long as them!

I've got 2 shrimp tanks down below, 1 with red cherries, and the other with the ones I catch in the creek

I also took the trap and the scoop net out today. Got a heap of shrimp, should keep the bass going.

Also got a few of these.

I know they are rainbows, but font know what sort. Some if them are pretty big. Was super happy with the haul.
