Thanks for the votes and compliments! I left votes for both of your setups as well, they are gorgeous. Is your pleco a common? I love common plecs, but they are monster fish, lol. My little bristlenose already goes through zucchini like nobody's business.

I do like bettas a lot, they're very personality-filled fish. Cories are great too. I really want some panda cories, they're adorable. Does your black cory school with your pandas at all? (just curious.)

"Pepper" is the same. However, I did visit my local pet supply store and purchased a nice air stone rope which is providing a good amount of aeration to the tank. In fact one of my emerald cory fish hung out there, right in the bubbles for 10 minutes! I also purchased a wide-spectrum test kit and my parameters are as follows: pH 7.2, nitrates 0, nitrites 0...I think I'm okay on values?? I don't have access to black worms, but I purchased some shrimp pellets last night as well and all my cories loved them, except Pepper. My brother actually gave Pepper to me, along with the Tetras and another cory and a beta, which passed early on after setting up my tank. I'll check with him to see how old she might be. I got a couple good picture of here this morning and will post here in case anyone can take a look and give me some info....she just looks depressed. I sat next to the glass this morning and talked to her (no idea whether they can hear voices or not, but usually when I come near the tank, she would swim laterally in the front)....gosh, I am attached to these fish!! She still hasn't eaten and has been sitting in the same spot since last night, with only periodic movements. On the good side, no more "floating" or vertical sitting...maybe that's a good sign. I do have my 5 gallon tank I could set up as an isolation tank this afternoon. I don't have an air stone for that one, but it does have the normal setup, heater, filter, etc. I REALLY appreciate your time in responding to me. I'm new at fish-keeping but I love these fish and really want to be successful. Please, if you have time, take a look at my pics and if you see anything that I don't I would greatly appreciate more input. For now, I will isolate and hold the food....she hasn't eaten in at least 5 days (at least that I saw) and my concern is that she starves to death. Her stomach does not look to be concave....I just can't figure it out. I did purchase some Flurvan last night, but am reluctant to add to the community tank, but perhaps that concern is unwarranted. In any event, if I can move here, that concern is moot. THANKS!!! PS - wasn't sure if I was supposed to post here to respond to your comment or on my own blog.....?? So, I have posted in both places. This site is great but the email I received telling me of your response, just says login to respond, but when I did that there is no "REPLY" button just "add a comment" but perhaps that is the same...??

Come visit me, cory-keeper.

Hi, thanks for checking out my tank. You've got an awesome pond there.

I just added two yellow labs in there so far. I have two red parrots in another tank that I've had for over 3 years, will probably move them over. Maybe add a couple of red cherry shrimp in the future if algae builds up.

Thanks for the neighborly visit
Your tub pond is inspiring, and reading that you don't use any filtering system really gives me hope for this coming spring and summer. You're right about pony, she's probably just a little sideshow freak fantail, but I love her fuzzy lookin head. I wanted to put a few more pics of the other two up there,but can't figure out how. I've been searching craigslist for a 40 or50 gallon to trade for, but I live in the pines,in the pines where the sun never shines. Thanks again for the visit.

Thanks for checking out my 20 gal. It already looks different as it's a temporary hospital tank. I'm treating my fish for parasites as they've been flashing for a while and a couple stopped eating and wasted away not long ago. Once I've treated all of my fish, I'm going to put sand and some plants in this tank and I want to get peacock gudgeons and guppies.

Test Kit
Back again. The pet store stated that city water was hard and subjected 2 gal tap water to 1 gal deionized.
Is your test kit the one with the dip sticks or several bottles and test tubes? If it the test tube type do you have an idea how many test you can run, Most are not cheap. Can you get more test solution's or do you need a hole new test kit when solutions are gone?

Plants & feeding
I have been feeding twice a day and of course the fish are always ready to eat. I have algae thins and some tuna nibblers I take one or the other break into quarters drop them in after I put flakes on surface. The filter pushes flakes down for the Zebras and the cats get their share. I think the cats hunt for food 8 hrs. a day.
With all the Zebras I probably have my 1 inch per gal. I want to get a honey Gourami and from what I have read they like floating plants. Right now I only have the 6 LEDs, with my tank 10 feet from north facing window I turn then on at 6 PM and off at midnight. Assume I will want lights on 10 or 12 hours with plants.
I will have to tell my old neighbor, who has a child's pool with fish and plants to keep his plants in pots like you have. GREAT IDEA!
Until latter

Response to 7-10-14 comment
Hi and thanks for the comment and vote. I was having some troubles logging in so couldn't respond until this am. You asked how many guppies I have in my 90 gal and what other fish I keep. There are sooo many guppies it's difficult to count. There is a very fat dwarf frog in the tank because I suspect he's eating the baby guppies. A pleco, Yo Yo loach, chain link loach, Clown Khulie loach (at least one), plus 3 different cories (an old green, a julie and one with an orange stripe). This picture is an old one so you can't see the guppies...will try and get a more current one posted. Thanks and I voted for your pond - trying to get a small one set up myself (can't wait).

I thank you for the vote you left me.
I really do like your setup. I wish I had room in our apt. for a larger aquarium. A few years back I was living in a house in Lancaster Pa. and had a very nice 75 Gal. cichlid tank setup and enjoyed it very much. I came home one day to find the tank empty and all my fish on the floor. The front glass had given way and well you can guess about the mess. since then my wife has never left me have another tank, until Harry came along. He's fun to watch and he knows when I'm in the room with him.

Thank you so much for stopping by with congratulations for my win for setup of the week. Now I'm setup of the month! What a great way to start the new year.

I'm sorry I didn't stop by sooner. My win for setup of the week was overcast with sadness as my beloved saluki, Melian, died that same week. She was scared by the neighbour's boisterous lab and in trying to escape she ran into a fence and broke her neck.

It was awful and I am still heartbroken about it. I have a 5 month old saluki puppy now but, of course, she can never replace Melian. Her name is Ember.

Now onto something more fishy, the pond is completely iced over now with all the cold weather. Occasionally we can see the fish below the surface but they are in hibernation till the warmer weather of spring.

Thanks again for stopping by and here's a vote for you. You have a beautiful pond too!

Come visit me, Pond Creature (Rest in peace, Melian).

Thanks for checking out my tank. I have recently just got back into the hobby and I am excited to see this great forum to talk fish and tanks. I would like to add a pond sometime to our property. Yours is very nice looking. I'm sure it took alot of effort and planning for such a big project.
