Title: I redecorated my 50 gallon goldfish tank
Post by: karlsmom on September 25, 2012, 06:47:33 PM
I redid the 50 gallon goldfish tank, and brought the fish inside from the stock tank pond.  The rocks are from the dollar store, the fake plants are from Petsmart.  I guess it's a rather minimalist look.

We still have Goldie and Little Blackie (who is now turning orange!).  My big gorgeous calico boy disappeared from the outside pond in June.  I'm still a little freaked out.

The new fish from spring and summer are Dorothy the calico, and Velvet the Black Moor.

I'm going to keep the stock tank pond going this winter, with the filter and a de-icer.  We have a little carp that must have come in with the plants I bought this spring, and my sister is going to give me a single tail calico that is in her tropical tank (ugh!).  When he's bigger, I will find an outdoor pond for him.

They look great! I like the "low key" decor. I also really like your Little Blackie; orange looks good on him!

I didn't realise coldwater tanks could look so good!
