    So I decided to keep track of my tanks.
    So currently I'm moving some fish around and most of my tanks are not really setup permanently. So here's the list:
    Tank 1:
    So my newest tank is my almost south American tank. A 130L red sea tank. Stocking is 1 corydora brevirostris, 2 corydora trilineatus, 4 corydora paleatus, 8 corydora sterbai, 5 neon tetras, a geophagus altifrons and an African butterfly fish.

    Tank 2:
    My 3ft tank which I've had running since 2018 is my oldest tank. It now houses my Thai silk flowerhorn, a yoyo loach and a half banded spiny eel. The tank looks like the surface of Mars currently. It also has my egg tumbler for my Cory and pleco eggs. I still need to get a light for the tank so I take the lid off to take pictures.

    Tank 3:
    A small 1ft tank that I'm currently using to breed a platinum guppy pair and to raise corydora fry in a breeder box.
    16060269345421732444765.jpg
    Tank 4:
    A 30L all in one tank that I normally use to quarantine fish. Used to house the flowerhorn, eel and loach. I'm also shocked that they got along. Now it currently has a little grumpy Chungus. As she waits for her newly setup 2ft.
    16060271872811852655810.jpg
    Tank 5:
    A 2ft tank that I setup recently to temporarily house my culled endler males. The sponges for the filter are being used to seed the 130L.
    1606027224182107751799.jpg
    Tank 6:
    A 3ft tank that I hope my plans work out for. Currently has a lone rummy nose tetra and some endlers which I still need to catch and move somewhere. 4 spotted hillstream loaches that I'm hoping to breed and going to get 3 or 2 betta channoides pairs to breed in there. The breeder net has a few long fin bristlenose plecos that a friend is taking.
    16060277586181293127530.jpg
    Tank 7:
    A 3ft tank that I use to breed orange point Japan blue endlers, ghost shrimp and bristlenose plecos. There are also 6 ember tetras, a khuli loach and a bumblebee goby in the tank. I have baby plecos growing out a bit in the small breeder net and a group of yellow shrimp breeding in the large breeder net.
    16060295344431337570226.jpg
    Tank 8:
    My tanganikan 2ft with an internal sump compartment. Currently has 5 gold head compresscieps and a few ghost shrimp in the sump compartment.
    16060296340122048961233.jpg
    Tank 9:
    A 1.5ft tank that I'm using to house mixed shrimp and convert some snow white anubias nana petite.
    IMG_20201028_105635.jpg 1606029501712755083886.jpg

    Tank 10:
    Im experimenting with making a little ecosystem in a bowl. I picked up a 10L bowl recently and put in plants and 4 of the best coloured red shrimp that I had.
    No filter and no heater.
    IMG_20201115_130336.jpg
    Tank 11:
    Currently a kid's sand pit shell that I'm using as a tub outside for my 3 goldfish, Rango, Tango and Mango. The big goldfish, Rango, was rescued from being released into a dam. The tub was initially a no filter experiment and was working in winter but now with summer and the lack of plants I needed to add some aeration into the tub. So I'm running an airline from my room upstairs to the tub outside.

    I've been busy. Yesterday I finally got my 2 pairs of betta channodies, I bought a cooler box full of bolbitus, java fern, christmas moss, fissidens and subwassertang and 2 small tanks.
    Today I bought a samurai female betta, a giant raphael catfish and 20 brochis multiradiatus instead of what I was looking for which was 10 clown loaches.

    @Kiaan26

    Apologies. I missed the update you posted with your Tangs :oops:

    Very nice.
    I like that you have added plants to this setup
    It's not traditional, as with mine. But it does add another dimension. :)

    So I've been quite busy. I'm currently also pet sitting a hedgehog with anxiety issues as in she want to ball up and stab everything.
    IMG_20201206_194007.jpg

    I bought alot of plants from a friend to auction off and to keep. Bought a large cooler box filled with bolbitus heudelotii, java ferns, subwassertang, Christmas moss and fissidens.

    I also bought a lot of fish this week.
    20 juvenile emerald corydoras
    IMG_20201210_233637.jpg
    20 Pygmy corydoras
    IMG_20201213_181619.jpg
    6 buck tooth tetras somehow but I have had an issue with where I bought the tetras and Pygmy corydoras from that I need to sort out tomorrow hopefully.
    IMG_20201213_181610.jpg
    A giant Raphael catfish
    IMG_20201211_155013.jpg
    2 synodontsis decorus which were miss labelled as synodontsis valentiana
    IMG_20201213_181040.jpg IMG_20201213_181034.jpg
    2 pairs of betta channodies and it looks like one male is already holding eggs.
    IMG_20201213_181517.jpg IMG_20201213_181524.jpg IMG_20201212_230316.jpg
    And a samurai female betta which already went to someone who wanted it badly.
    IMG_20201210_183104.jpg IMG_20201210_183101.jpg

    My goal with the corys is to keep them for the quarantine period and then select the best 10 to keep and then sell the rest.

    IMG_20201213_181438.jpg
    I had to move my platinum guppies to another tank as I need their tank to quarantine the pygmy corys and tetras.

    @Kiaan26
    Some nice additions
    The Buck Tooth Tetras are particularly interesting
    And the Raphael is a good size.

    Thanks. Some sad news the buck tooth tetras and nearly all of the pygmy corys are dead. They came in as a bad import but the shop that sold them to me said that they would replace all of them and the 15 cardinals that I bought for a friend. I also lost 2 of the juvenile emerald corys during their quarantine but they came in really skinny.

    On the bright side I saw one of my channodies pair locking up yesterday so hopefully the male is holding eggs. I also bought a few live culture to feed my fish. Banana worms, microworms, grindal worms and roaches for my larger fish.

    Also it's an irwini catfish also called a giant rapheal catfish. It's supposed to get 50cm eventually. I just like him cause he had spikes.

    Sorry to hear that you lost the Tetras and Cories :(

    The various species in this group of cats are nice.
    Only problem is they tend to hide a lot during the day.

    16080454841721535705369.jpg Well my tank scape does look a little bit like the surface of Mars so not a lot of hiding spots.

    Both male channodies are holding eggs and live food cultures have been divided into new cultures waiting for baby bettas and corys. I currently have 3 banana worm cultures, 3 microworm cultures and 5 grindal worm cultures. And I'm getting walter worms hopefully this weekend.

    Added a few fish to my flowerhorn tank in the last few days. I added my 2 small synodontis decorus and the rest were rehomed to me 2 15cm yoyo loaches, 8 large apple snails and a large chinese algae eater. I also recieved about 100 albino cory eggs today.

    Also I setup my one 2ft tank that used to house the gold heads comps. As I'm hopefully going to get a pair or trio of wild caught yellow occelatus shell dwellers as I plan to breed them and wanted the parents to have different genetics.

    Hopefully they will come in with next weeks import from Samaki Kings. But then again they go really quickly once their list finally gets released.
