Something Fishy!

OK, people. I've recently started my new fish tank. I've always had tanks since i was a little kid, and I decided to get a tank set up. Figured I would start a thread and see if there's other members on with the same interest. Any tips/tricks/ideas you guys have post up. Post up your tanks too!

Tank: 37 gallon (tall) -30" (L) 12 1/4" (W) 22 3/4 (T)

I still have to find a backing that fits this tank.

My Current Stocking:

1 - Leopard puffer fish
1 - Sun Catfish
1 - Md Pleco (Suckerfish/algae eater)
2 - Giant Danios
3 - Cory cats

A few pics

Full shot of my tank:



These are a few pics of my leopard puffer...hes a sneaky little guy and hard to get a good pic of.







These are some shots of my Sun Catish, hes pretty quick too:









My Giant Danios, they hide alot:



And my Pleco (suckerfish) hiding

Brings back memories. I use to have a 48 inch high vertical fish tank. It became to big of a pain, I kind of miss it. it provided alot of light though at night. lol I had salt water fish one was a shark but not sure which kind (dont remember). It cost alot though and lived for 3 years.

I kept tanks for a few years. My favorite was my 55 reef. It was a lot of fun, but very time consuming.

You've got a nice tank, just keep an eye on that puffer. Those guys are real ass holes

I don't have a tank at the moment, but I plan on starting a small nano once I'm done dropping big cash into my car.

Just a Heads up, I've got a Red tail Shovelnose Cat, He was about 3" when I got him, and just a couple months later and he's 8", and I can't keep anything in the tank that is the same size as him or smaller. He just eats anything he can fit in his mouth and even tries for bigger fish too.

He has already eaten a Dinosaur Bichir, an Armored Bicher, two 4" Bala Sharks, Numerous Goldfish, a Snail, and 3 Algae Eaters.

Your Sun Cat Will Turn Predatory when he gets bigger... Just A Precaution. I know the Cats are Cool to watch, but man they get expensive to feed. I can put (no lie now I'll get pics next feeding) 50 Feeder Gold Fish and they will be gone the next day.

But Man, Nice Tank set up. My girl and I have a 46 Gallon Euro Bow Front with Sand as our fill instead of Gravel. I need to get a pic to show ya'll.

This is the Tank, Kinda Crappy, I just cleaned the filter and there is some stuff floating around... but you can see it at least, and Check out that Catfish, My girl named him Splinter
