Fish Tank Photos

Scans of photos of fish tanks I had

I got a used 20 gallon for my 12th birthday. 1968 or so. It leaked and the smell of curing silicone is forever linked to tanks for me. That guppy bred but I didn’t know to protect the young. They didn’t last long in the plastic shrubbery.

A very young managuensis cichlid (Parachromis managuensis)

A young Salvini cichlid (Cichlasoma salvini)

Managuensis about to spar.

Territorial nips.

A red tiger oscar (Astronotus ocellatus), Talipia (right) and an unknown tank-mate.

A Jack Dempsey cichlid (Rocio octofasciata) looking clamped and unhappy.

A Corydoras catfish.

Another photo of the Dempsey & various other tank occupants. I think I had this tank in 1990 or so.

A five spot jewel cichlid (Hemichromis fasciatus)

This is a 60 gallon long. The 1994 incarnation. Used as a room divider. My semi-loft futon platform is in the background

Red tiger oscars, that old Jack Dempsey, a managuensis, a salvini, a geophagus and a Heros severus.
