180 gallon tank.

Post by theswede on Mon May 31, 2010 6:41 pm

Visited a friend today and took some shots of his 180 gallon malawi tank. Unfortunately the daylight was very strong and there are some mirror effects in the glass. But here goes anyway.

His redfin males are huge compared to mine.

He has some very nice set-ups. What is that intense red fish to the right of the first pic in his 66g? It looks like an Mbuna but I've never seen one with such a red color over most of its body.

Argh. I am so split on the whole line bred, hybrid thing. I realize line bred are true species bred to enhance certain traits but the purist in me still rages against it......... Still, all in all, I would love to have that Hongi.

He has also changed the 66 gallon against a 90 gallon. Same background but put a couple of modules on the bottom.

Yes, those stone modules on the bottom made a huge difference in this tank.

Today he finished his 303 gallon tank. It looks pretty promising. The fish from the 180 gallon will go into this one together with a group of Dimidiochromis compressiceps.

Sweet. Looking forward to seeing how the fish will enjoy their larger quarters.

Took some new pics of the 303 gallon with the fish in place. The water was very cloudy but with a little help from my friend photoshop they look almost presentable.
