I'm back and super excited!!! There are so many new members on here since I was called "skabooya". BC aquaria had changed over and my information for some reason would not transfer over. I had to start over. I am now known as "mom" lol.

Most of my previous aquariums have shut down or are in the process of shutting down because of ... life.
My husband and kids know how much I love my aquariums so for Christmas they surprised me with a Fluval 55 gal aquarium kit! OMG EXCITED MAMA HERE!!!!
My brother got me a gift card to our local pet store. I went online and spent it all on substrate muahahaha.
I will also be getting a second filter for this aquarium for the flow and quite possibly an air pump and bubbler. Yea I know, not pretty and amateurish BUT the inhabitants I want to keep come from highly oxygenated waters.

Without further time wastage here are the spec stuffs

55 gal Fluval LED aquarium kit- Fluval C4 filter
1890 LED lumens
Fluval heater but I will probably use my Ebo Jagger heater instead.
Add ons: AC 110
Fluval airpump and air stone
Activ-Flora black substrate for background
Pool Filter sand in foreground
Mopani Wood
River Stones (wild collected and treated by moi)
Hydor Korilla power head

Flora: Java Fern
Anubias
Cryptocorne
Bolbitus

Fauna: Tiger Barbs, Corydoras, Odessa Barbs.


No pictures yet. The aquarium is still in the box lol.
Wood is currently soaking in the kids bath tub I confiscated last night. Drained all the black water once so far.
Kids will be bathing in our ensuite for the next couple weeks. Waterlogging and leaching tannins from the wood is more important right now lol.

PS... how do we insert pics now? Is it still photobucket or do we use something else more updated or easier.

This is frustrating. Does anyone know any free host apps I can use to upload photos ? Photobucket is no longer free. Imgur will only post a link and not a photo. The attachment icon here doesn't work at all. Anyone?

I can almost never see pics and they don't work for me either
Shouldn't be so difficult !
it wasn't this difficult before when I was a member under a different name years ago. I wrote to admin. I hope the problem can be solved. Sharing pics is such a huge part of helping others in this hobby.

20201226_205820.jpg 32 gallon neglected aquarium in the playroom. All but the Cory has found a new home. This will be sold off. This room will be my daughter's new bedroom when the renos are complete.

20201226_205916.jpg sons bedroom aquarium. His betta is almost 2. He is a pig! Eats all the guppy fry and 15 pellets on average a day ! No joke. Brown pelia needs to be removed.

20201226_205954.jpg daughters bedroom aquarium. New betta. She has had him for almost 3 months. Her last one was just over a year when he passed. Dainty eater.. not too smart of a fish either.
