Post by Lisachromis » Mon Jan 14, 2008 10:46 am

Would people be interested in having a "my tanks" section where you could post details about your tanks?

I think we better keep this informatioon where it now is. I once posted about 1 of my tank. As this tank contains CA fishes, I posted in the CA section.

So I don't think we need this kind of section, but I would not impy we don't need this kind of information

i might as well give a basic idea of how i was thinking it should be like. here's an example :roll:

Introduction,
I have a 20 gal almost biotype tank not vary many plants and more will come soon but it is meant to be a "peice of the amazon" dark water aquarium right now there is way to many fish including wildcaught Acaronia.sp etc. i will release them back to where i got them very soon.

So far it's looking evenly divided among those who've actually voted. I'll leave it up a bit longer to see if we get a majority.

I LOVE to see the tanks of other hobbyists. Even after keeping cichlids for 40 years, I still learn and see different ways of doing things. Not just the looks of the tanks but also the equipment they use.

Tropheus sp. "Ilangi"

Image
6 foot, 125g, two AquaClear 500
Tropheus sp. "Cape Nundo" and Simochromis Babaulti

6 foot, 160g plywood tank, 2 Rena canister filters
Geophagus Altifrons and Geophagus sp. "Tapajos red head"

I am not really understanding what to do to post one. I wasnt thinking it to be a regular forum page, or even in the forum cattergory , but a fill in the blank thing with automatic questions it (i think) would be more organized and more specific. i dont have a clue how to even begin doing it plus its not neccesary but Its just an idea. :wink:
