  • 37 planted Hex.

    Im starting a journal for this i suppose. This is the first tank i have setup and actually LIKED. Never had the ability to situate the decor or plants right and it always left the tank a little lack luster. Enter the new Hex and BAM, instant mosaic(ok, not quite).


    Started with this little $25 goodwill investment

    After i moved all my 29gal inhabitants into the tank

    Great looking tank! I always liked hex tanks. Nice stock too! How do the barbs like that shape tank? Never tried them in a hex.

    I fixed the youtube link so the video showed up in the post.

      Thanks XP. I thought the barbs would hate it tbh, but they don't. They really love the dang thing more then they loved the 29gal. All the wood and such gives them a ton of lower shelters to explore which seems to be their thing. Not a top or mid level fish at all. The moss is a big favorite for them now. They are definitely meant for planted tanks, their colors just burst. Im going to keep them stocked at 7 and then get the rose danios up to 6. Still not sure about the bottom. I would LOVE to do kuhlis but i can never find them. I have always wanted a syno or featherfin but im not sure if they would fit.

        They do like plants lol. Synos would be too big unfortunately. And a Featherfin is a type of syno lol.

        I could probably find you some kuhlis lol.

          I just figured Kuhli's based of how the bottom looks, lots of obstructions and such. Cory probably wouldn't favor it.

                I love my danios. The store has long fin danio kerri too. I want to beat myself senseless because i could have gotten 6 of them when i got the 2 rose danio. Seriously. SERIOUSLY.

                On a side note, I dosed prazipro today for the internal parasites on the gold barb. Ended up doing the entire tank, figured why the heck not.

                    yeah should have gotten them lol

                    but then again if we live life looking back at what we have done or have not done, we will most certainly walk into a brick wall

                          Thats the beauty of it all. The store still has plenty in stock.
