This is NOT the tank of the month, but a placeholder for future, far more worthy, tanks of the month.
We would love for everyone to show off their favorite tanks. Want to participate? Of course you do. You would like to showcase your prize tank, and we would love to post it in this section.
How do you participate?
- Look at all of your tanks. Which really stands out? That’s it! We agree. Now,
- Take pictures of your tank. The more the merrier.
- Shoot a video. Try to take make it at least one minute in length. Longer is fine.
- Post the video on YouTube. If you don’t know how, use the Contact Us page, and assistance is but an email away.
- Write at least four sentences about your tank. Heck, write War and Peace if you fancy. Don’t fancy yourself a writer, your article will be edited for spelling and grammar.
Email me at Lonnie.Goldman@gmail.com and include:
- Your article
- Your pictures
- The link to the video you posted on YouTube.
Your article will look something like this:
February 2023 Tank of the Month
Submitted by Lonnie Goldman
This post is merely an example of what the Tank of the Month showcase will look like.
This is my Red Jewel Cichlid (Hemichromis bimaculatus) tank. I love how the aquascaping came out. The red jewel cichlids love all the caves and crevices, which make them feel secure. When I first set up the tank, they were very skittish and would all dart, hide, and disappear. I have since added some Jungle Valisneria which has made them bolder and come out more often.
I feed them a variety of cichlid foods. Pellets, Flakes, Frozen Brine Shrimp. I’m open to other suggestions.
They are very prolific breeders. It’s not unusual when two pairs spawn at nearly the same time. The babies will be well protected by the parents. But, if I don’t remove the babies, within a few days, they become fish food for the other Red Jewels. I have removed babies twice. Raised them all up and either gave them away, sold a few, or put a few back into the main tank. I don’t have enough room to set up all the grow-out tanks I would need.
Here’s a video that my son took. He created a YouTube Channel for all the fish we have. Sadly, he hasn’t taken any new videos in quite a while.
This video was taken prior to the addition of a lot more rocks.
Thank you for showcasing my tank. Comments and suggestions are always welcomed.
