Default My Gibberosa frontosa moba blue zaire tank

Hi i just want to post my project. i upgraded my 720 liter (190 gallon) tank. I finieshed it today and wanted to share with you guys

Hope you enjoy




One more thing.. 0.38 sec in the video my big alpha male is it fin rot he have?

I absolutely love your tank! Nice group as well. I think the salt should help with the tattered fins quite a bit, I would wait a couple days and see if there's any improvement.

Are your rocks artificial? I'm fascinated by all of the rock work in the upper sections of the tank. It's a very different look for a frontosa/gibberosa tank and I like it very much!

The small rocks are real but the big rocks are artificial we drilled holes in them and stiched airstones in them with fish line. The front upperstones "overhangingrocks" are floating stones they stay there when they get presure from the water (they are removable) it was a big and fun project im glad you liked it
