    Since you asked so nicely I decided I would share them with ya.

    The first is my 75 gallon freshwater tank. I did a serious plant thinning this morning. I could barely see the fish anymore. I pulled out 8 large amazon swords and 14 swordlets and huge clumps of wisteria. I'm lucky enough to have a pet store near me that will take trade on super healthy plants (and fish for that matter). I have always had a soft spot for freshwater angelfish. I keep the platys for color and well part of the food chain. With the overabundance of plants they quickly took over the tank.

    Here's my newest baby. It's a 56 corner marine tank. I just set it up in January. I still have to add some more live rock and my petstore buddy is ordering some of the fish that I'd like to add in there. Today I made the plant trade for a long spined urchin. He's pretty cool. I also have a yellow tang, 3 percula clowns, anenome, 2 cleaner shrimp, yellow headed jawfish, a couple of crabs and a few snails.

    Very nice. Maybe some day I'll get more then feeder fish! LOL

    Here's a q, do you ever worry about water getting too hot? If so... how do you stop it from over heating. Solutions I hear are 1) ice water bottles, 2) get AC, 3, a cooler system that is big $$$.

    Juls, they are great! I really love the FW tank, the background is awesome. My mom told me she doesnt see what the problem with an aquarium is, so maybe I'll have a pic to show off to you soon!! [​IMG] Beautiful tanks! Thanks very much for taking the time to get pics for me, I really appreciate it.

    For you Jordan anytime, yer my bud. After I get the rest of the fish bought and settled in the marine tank I'll update pics.

    I hope you get to set up a tank, they are very rewarding once they get established.

    I found that background several years ago on the clearance rack at PetsMart. I only paid $10 for it. I just hate looking at all the wires/cords on the back of the tank. On the marine tank I just put a black background on it.

    If you get your tank and have any ?'s just ask. I've been running tanks longer than you've been alive. LOL.
