here's a few of mine.
and the wierdest one i have.
if you have a wierd patterend one put them up to show how varied they are.
Happy fish keeping!
my mate Neils lucky in having an Indian exporter who knows what we want.
going back to when i first started this great hobby/job the only almorhae you could find all had the yoyo markings, i'm sure i had one in my first setup.
one of my new ones also looks like he went through the stamper sideways - i will have to get the camera out again.
the boldest female
the boldest male. he wil be a right tart, and will give one of my other males a run for his money for dancing for food, when this one moves into the main tank.
sorry for the crap pictures. the male is normally very pale, as far as i have been able to tell. the other two are not so bold, so more pictures wil have to wait, and i will try for more of the others
the males inherited my dwarf cory tank as a q tank, the females are in my normal q tank. they are both in rimless tanks, but one of them has a plastic bit tacked on to hold the lid in place. why were you wondering if it's a rimless tank? should i be worrying?
These were taken at a GSAS(Seattle aquarium club) auction last year. I had no place to put the fish at the time and snapped a few quick shots after it was bought. Something like $6.00 if I remember right? I had never seen a "yoyo" like this and questioned whether it really was. I stopped at a prominent Seattle fish shop on the way home and there was a tank full of the same fish. They were big (4-6 in.) and beautiful! But, I had no place for them. I don't know if that's blood in the bag or what? It seems that there was a reddish hue to the fins
I doubt you need to be worried at all. I've just never seen one before. The rim is supposed to have absolutely nothing to do with the strength of the tank, but I have never seen one in the States. I don't think we're ready for them yet. I'm quite liberal, but I wouldn't be able to sleep without the plastic rim top and bottom that does nothing being there to make me feel better. My 1 piece molded acrylic has a rim!helen nightingale wrote:why were you wondering if it's a rimless tank? should i be worrying?
It isn't going anywhere. I'm sure it's fine. Did you make it, or buy it??helen nightingale wrote:i will take a photo of the bracing around the top of my main tank for you - it had better not go anywhere
Here is a link to a neat aquarium builder page - type in the dimensions for a tank and choose glass and it will show you the complete directions for how to assemble one - supposedly correctly. You could compare your tanks construction to the ones listed.
