I have to apologize for not responding to your entry (back in June) until now. Truth is, I haven't been on the site very often over the past year or so, lack of time and effort on my part! Anyway, thanks for the comment about my tank; I'm glad you like it. I spent about 9 months putting together the filtration system, lighting in the tank and inside the stand (no more flashlight needed to be able to see inside the stand to find thigs), and just getting the set up ready to put into the room and add fish. I have a canister filter inside the stand and about a foot or so of flexible tubing between the filter and the pvc pipe that makes up the rest of the plumbing for the tank. I built an adjustable spray bar with fittings that allow the holes in the pipe to be rotated, changing the flow of the water and I can also add aeration to the water with it also. I added an in-line heater/thermostat to the return line and love it! It keeps the tank temp at a constant 79.0 degrees. I used aquarium sealant to attach air line into the back corners of the tank so you cannot see the supply lines to the air stone wands. Inside the stand I added shelving, a power strip, filter, air pump & lights (a small 12" florsecent light fixture on each side and enough space to store all of my supplies, including 5 gal. buckets. I illuminate the tank with a 4' florescent daylight bulb & a small fixture with 3 blue LED lights on either side of the tank that are on timers. I use artficial plants, because it makes cleaning the tank easier & I like to rearrange the surroundings inside the tank (especially when I add new fish).
Now you're probably sorry that I responded at all, hehehe! Left you a vote! Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Come visit me, Pisciculi.

Just returning your visit and checking out your tank also. Thanks for the nice comments. I appreciate it! i worked very hard to get it all together over a long period of time. For many years I had a 40gallon setup and last September (Labor Day sale at the LFS) I bought the 75 gal tank, stand and canopy. I built shelving (almost lost the tip of my left index finger to the table saw), added lights to the inside of the cabinet and ran CPVC piping for the supply & return lines for the canister filter, I used hard plastic lines for the air lines also (flexible tubing where needed) I used aquarium sealant to secure the hard tubing into the rear corners of the tank, making them practically invisible to the eye. I built my own spraybar on the return line and installed an in-line heater (works great!) as well. The canister is so quiet, I can barely hear it running and it is very efficient also. I have a variety of Dwarf South American Cichlids, Tetras, Cory Cats and a Dwarf (clown) Pleco. All are doing well! I'm always on the lookout for rare dwarf cichlids (apistogrammas), and others. I'm 57 yrs old, and have been keeping fish for the past 40 years. My user name Pisciculi is latin for small fish (the more the merrier...and the smaller they are, the more I can put into the tank, sorta!)

What variety of betta do you have? I like the Delta & Half Moon fin types; and find the color variations amazing. I just wish they were a little more peaceful. I've never kept any of them, because I don't like the idea of "solitary confinement".

Well, I'm gonna cut it short, as it is getting late and wake up time comes waaay too early!

Take care (left you a coupla votes!)

Come visit me, Pisciculi.

Nice Betta tank.
It looks good, and is large enough that your betta will love it. I don't know much about cherry shrimp, though I did have some of the Red Cherry Shrimp (n.heteropoda?). They bred for a while, but then I think the fish ate them. Here's another vote for you.

Finally I have a minute to sit down and update my account. I finally changed all of the tanks around and bought myself another tank for shrimp. I though I would give it a try. I don't have any plants or hiding places yet in the shrimp tank. Thought it would be better too start cycling, and add the plants and ornaments later, before the shrimp. I am still deciding which of the Neocaridina spp to try. Anyone have a perference?
