    Well, we have 3 tanks total.

    One is a 46 gallon saltwater tank with 2 Ocellaris Clowns, 6 line wrasse, coral beauty, molly miller blenny, yellow watchman goby paired with a tiger pistol shrimp, and various other inverts and corals.

    Another is a 9 gallon saltwater cube with a mantis shrimp and a 3 stripe damsel.

    And the last one, which is relevant to your question, is a 10 gallon freshwater with 2 fat and happy goldfish as well as an assortment of tetras.

    Mine are feeder goldfish that survived the regime of a pet turtle ::)

    Do you have pics of this??? 1000 gallons is absolutely ginormous for a tank. Unless you're talking about an outdoor pond?

    I've got 2 40g tanks side by side on a 6 foot stand. 11 turtles in ther but no GF. I've gat a 125g and a 30g that are empty at the moment. The 125 probably has a future with the turtles and I hope to have a reef tank running by this summer.

    Let's just stick to GF, please. No offense.
