Just an update

Postby Big Den » Fri Jan 31, 2014 11:46 am

Hi all, been a while but thought I would post an update on what I've been up to. I have, and it's ongoing, closed down a few tanks. I recently bought 10 snakehead fry from a member of another forum and they are growing very fast. I have these in a 6x2x2 but I intend to close that tank down and move them to a 5x2x2 when I sell some of the fish that are in there. I have 12 Exodon paradoxus (bucktooth tetra) in a 4x2x2 and am in the process of selling those so that I can close that tank down. I still have my fully planted 6 foot tank going with just guppies, bristlenose and shrimp in, I like this tank and am trying to build up the guppy stock, very poor at the moment so may have to introduce some fresh females.

The reason for closing down tanks is that I want to make more room in my garage for some woodworking projects that I have in mind. I will always keep the 4 tanks in my office, the planted one as shown, 2 60 litre and my 8x2x2 red belly piranha tank.
More updates soon.

I am glad you have not closed all your tanks down Den, you have some stunning fish. I was never a fan of snakeheads but your piranhas have always fascinated me, they are gorgeous fish.

Good to see you around Den.
Why are you selling the Exodon paradoxus, they look pretty fish? Can't they go in with something else?

I had 100 to start with, quite a few were eaten by their tank mates, some jumped out the tank and some I sold. They seemed to have settled now at 12 fish. No, nothing will live with them they nip at scales and terrorise other fish to death. I have a few plants in their tank so that they can hide to catch their breath, lol.

Hi Den. Good to see you.
I've been doing some downsizing myself over the last year or so.
I had it down to one tank for about 5 minutes but am back up to two. One for me and one for my better half.

Hello Den

How are your Snakeheads doing? I was just reading about them, they sound awesome! Best make sure that no small animals get into the garage!

Hi Graeme, these are the smaller type, don't get no bigger than 8 inches, it's a mouth brooder Channa harcourtbutleri. The biggest one I have at the moment is about 5 inches, I have 8 left out of the 10 I started with, they have a habit of getting out of the tank for some reason.
