James' tank


Well I live in Kent, south east, and my dad had tropical fish from when I was very young, when I turned 16 as a present I was bought a 2 ft tank and been into tropical fish ever since, now 21 I still have the 2ft (medical and breeding tank) and now a 3ft by 1 & 1/2ft by 2ft deep, can't remember the exact gallon...

    I keep a vast variety of community fish in my bigger tank, such as;
  • 1 Black ghost knife fish, was about 1 inch long when I got it a year ago and now about 8 inches long
  • 4 (2 breeding pairs) of kribensis, never had any problems spite all the myths surrounding them.
  • 1 male betta (fighter)
  • 2 kissing gouramis
  • 2 pearl gouramis
  • 4 black fin tetras
  • Several mixed danios, zebra, pearls etc. (constantly breeding, but eggs don't seem to survive, if they do, most get eaten as fry)
  • 2 plecos
  • 2 marble angels
  • 2 breeding khuli loaches (god knows how I managed that)
  • 1 golden bard, was a shoal of 4, but the rest died.
Surprisingly I have had no problems with the fish not getting on, when I've bought fish in the past, one scenario was buying kribs when I already had my kissing gouramis, they almost wouldn't sell me them due to not being compatible, they've been in there together for about 3 months and had no trouble!

I've seen hundreds of tanks that I though were really imaginative, and you either have luminous coloured décor, which isn't my preference, or ones that look exactly as the fish's habitat would in the wild, not yet have a seen a tank with a selected theme, i.e. my tank as a Japanese garden, which I think stands out from the rest, the fine black shiny sand, with elaborate Japanese colours and décor. I can send others pictures on request.
