Today I took some photos of the fish in my 75 gallon tank; here are a few highlights…
This is Nixie, a small orange butterfly telescope. She is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody, a large calico butterfly telescope. This guy is a powerful swimmer.
This is Babydoll, a small black butterfly telescope. She’s hard to get a good photo of. I learned that it’s best to wait until she swims in front of the bright quartz rock to take a photo so you can actually see her!
And here are Saphira and Clover. Saphira is a sakura fantail and Clover is a red and white ryukin/fantail.
A fun group photo of three fish! Plus, Babydoll is hiding in the background. Can you spot her?
Right now this tank is home to five fish. The tank is a 75 gallon tank with a wet/dry filter that holds another 10 gallons of water, so technically I could have more fish in here if I chose to. But I’ve been really keen on the “less is more” approach lately and I’m trying to keep all my tanks understocked. I’ve also always favored minimal decor; as you can see the tank is bare-bottom and only has two large quartz rocks as decoration. I like to keep the tanks simple and elegant so the fish are the main focal point.
Less is more!
