Re: 55 Gallon GSP Tank....What do you think???

We are raising the SG by .002 each week as of now. Our plan is to get the tank to 1.02 and hang out there for a while. We have a powerhead that we use to mix their brackish water with in a plastic tub for a couple of days before we do water changes....she we add a powerhead to their tank as well? Th...

Re: 55 Gallon GSP Tank....What do you think???

Re: MY GSP TANK

That's a great looking tank! You may want to look into silk plants, plastic plants can hurt your GSPs.... sometimes they have sharp edges that can cut their skin. Here's a photo of our 55 gallon GSP tank, we change over to silk plants after learning the plastic plant lesson the hard way. One of our ...

Re: 55 Gallon GSP Tank. What do you think?

Thank you.... I love your quote! It is really easy to keep up an aquarium if you do your weekly maintenance. We do a 25% water change, vacuum the substrate, scrub the inside of the glass and turn up the substrate once a week. In all I think it takes us 20 minutes on Thursday mornings and our water v...

Re: Newbie GSP Owner

I rescued two 1.5-2" GSP from a woman on Craigslist that was going to let them go in the ocean if no one took them. I drove an hour each way and placed them in my ten gallon tank when I got home. After doing my homework all night, I searched and found a great deal on a used 60 gallon tall tank,...
