hello guys,
just wanna share my tanks with you all and please leave comments good or bad...

IPB Image
this is my tank setup outside my bedroom, those are 2 50gal tanks and 2 20gal tanks

IPB Image
this is the top tank of the 2 50gal tanks, im using dyna 600 overhead filters for all my tanks, im not sure if it is enough or not, and would like your comments on this.... i might reduce one fish in a few weeks to come, and transfer it to another tank

IPB Image
bottom tank of the 2 50gal tanks, dyna 600 overhead filter and would eventually transfer the 2 ranchus to another tank

IPB Image
top tank of the 2 20gal tanks, also dyna 600 overhead filter, would eventually transfer these ranchus to a 50gal tank

IPB Image
this is my bathroom, hahaha weird place to put tanks in but it fits just right. i just bought another one for the top tier, and would transfer the 3 ranchus in the 20gal tank here after cycling. the bottom tank will house the 2 ranchus from the tank with 2 other ryukins

this is a pic of my water drums outside my room in my balcony. nothing fancy, just airpump and airstone. we live in a village just beside the water treatment facility so chlorine is pretty heavy still.

in the overhead filters that i have, i put ceramic rings and wool inside. am planning to add coral chips but havent measured ph levels yet,
i am also planning to add eheim 2215 filters in each 50 gal tank because there is always poop and small "debris" floating around, any comments on this?

oh and i feed them hikari lionhead, and saki hikari for fancy goldfish, plus hikari fd bloodworms and sometimes hikari fd brine shrimp..

any comments would be welcomed

Your tanks are very beautiful and compact. Just one question, what is the high of the chamber for the stand?

Thanks.

the part with the question mark is 3.5 feet long

those tanks are standard measurments here in the philippines for a 50 gallon tank.... i just had the stands custom made 'cause im afraid the standard they sell in the shops might not be up for the job, it is a lot of weight after all... and would want it to last very long

Your fish feels bad without gravel and live plants. Besides gravel and live plants helps better filtration and keep natural balace in tank. In nature fish don't have bare bottom tanks from glass. Your goldfish are very cute.

i would rather have 1 giant tank than many of small ones... goldfish needs space to grow...

I quite agree with egwinh on this.

A Huge tank will be easier to manage and not forgetting the estatic view of all the GFs in it smile.gif

Well this statement half truth. Huge tank easier to manage as of vol space ratio to fish. When it comes to water change maintenance or diseases outbreak, you will have headache. sweatingbullets.gif

Yupz correct but if cannot maintain the condition of water, the goldfish will not feel but instead suffer from condition of water..
