I have been looking for SOMETHING to put in with the tiger barbs. Something that could survive their onslaught basically. So, mostly some sort of bottom feeder they would leave alone. I saw some cool ass looking, bulking Sterbii Cory Cats and added 5 of those dudes in.
So far so good. They are active and cool looking. Here is a pic (not my fish) off the web of them…
Keeping my fingers crossed that the barbs leave them alone…
So, I mentioned before that the Tiger Barbs from the 90 Gallon had been dealt with. Well, this is what I meant.
Luckily, around this time, I was doing my usual craigslist perusing and ran across a pretty good damn deal. A 37 gallon bow front with black silicone (black silicone is sexy), light, hood, filter, heater, decoration… all for 80 bucks. Not bad dave man. Not bad at all. So I snatched it up, got it cleaned up, and set it up in my son’s room.
I also put extra tile squares under it to help protect the wood on his chest of drawers. I am not sure if it will help or not but we will see. Looks nice I think.
So, got everything ready, dumped the annoying fuckers in there, and hoped for the best. So far, so good. I love the black silicone of the tank and for whatever reason, despite having a cheap ass filter on it, the water is pristine and clear. Das it.
