I've been keeping marine organisms since the late 60's --I was just a child back
then, and I'm soooo excited for your son. Is your 50 fresh, saltwater FO, or a reef?

I'm actually in the process of setting up a nano-reef myself.

nung early teens ko mahilig ako sa aquarium, dati freshwater lang ang available, from what i can recall, under gravel filters are very hard to clean, ns-b1 air pumps are good quality, dont put pond fishes in a water tank ( from personal experience, my hammerhead shark grew so big that when it swam it agitated the water too much causing my tank to seize....twice this happened, the first time i thought the glass was too thin, i had it made w/ glass thicker than recommended, but still it seized ), dont use regular flourescent lamp, pangit ang labas, their is a lamp specifically for aquariums.... thats all for now....enjoy!

can't see the pic horge: It's a freshwater aquarium with angelfish and blood parrot fish. Planning of having a bigger tank i just don't know where to put it.

The house we are using right now has a L -shaped pond constructed by my cousin i just need some time and do more research about pond filtration. Don't have the budget for those hi tech filtration system im a DIY guy hehehe. Project fish is Tilapia para tipid na.

good filter choice for a pond is a janitor fish, and after that all a pond needs is good aeration.

No janitor fish yet but i think i made a good set up naman that minimal cleaning lang ang ginagawa ko i made sure no dead spot sa aquarium.

@paul- type ko kasi community fish pag FH isa lang sa isang aquarium like yung kay gundog na ang laki ng kok.

i used to have a fresh water aquarium myself, 50 gal. i had different types of fishes that lived at different levels, meron surface, mid water and bottom dwellers. lots of rocks and underwater plants. simulated a pond/river environment.

DIY is the best way to go.:thumbsup:
I built a pond filter once, using a plastic trashcan almost totally buried in the
ground next to the pond. Andun lahat: the return pump, the mech filter
(using quilting floss in an easy-to-lift-out netting bag, with some lighting
diffuser grate for partitioning), etc...

Sobra na kasi ngayon ang prices ng equipment.
Back in the day, I used to build my own 20 gal all-glass tanks because
I thought P450.00 was too much to pay. Now I can't even LOOK at the
prices in local fish shops.

Used to keep FW in the 80's, mostly Amazonian fish (Characins, etc.)
Didn't like Plecostemus "janitors" back then (ang papapanget, e, lol),
so I relied on small Corydoras catfish and loaches.

yeah! used to have! my brother was given a baby crocodile way, way back, i think it was 1987. set it up to live in a terrarium which it eventually outgrew (of course)! LoL! we transferred it in our pond. Donated Lacoste to a foundation rescuing captive exotic pets and vets got him and returned him to the wild last Dec. 2007. it was around 9ft long when they got him. Accdg. to the vet, it should be at least 14-15ft at it's age. whoa! hahaha!

dati yung fence around the pond was not yet that high, then one time bumabagyo, the pond overflowed and the croc was able to jump over the fence and swam over to the other pond/fountain where my brother had red-tailed catfish, cichlids and other exotic big fish. the croc ate them all!

Thanks guys sa mga info and personal stories about fish keeping.

The other aquarium i visited once ay sa may tabi ng sta. lucia GL yata yun:supergrin:

seriously im looking for a subtrate that i could use either silica sand or other fine sand. When i was in boracay i was temtep to smuggle out boracay sand kaya lang hinuhuli sa airport hehehe. I inherited white peebles stones two buckets at least kaya lang walang contrast eh.

for planted plants plastic muna need to learn pa how to take care of plants dami requirements like lights and CO2.

Used to have a Silver and Golden Arowana and a Red Pacu. The Red Pacu was fed dog food. It grew too big that when it got spooked it smashed the aquarium. Ginawang sweet and sour ng hardinero namin. :)

I know of somebody in Bacolod who has a Pirirucu and it has grown so large. Mga 7 feet when he last measured it. He built a fence around the pond because he was scared children might fall into the pond.

I don't want to have a salt water aquarium. Aside from it being difficult to maintain, our coral reefs are suffering because people harvest the corals and sell them to salt water aquarium enthusiasts.

If you're new.... ;)
Learn as much as you can, especially about how certain corals are actually
collected and how they fare in aquaria. Some hard corals are actually
sustainably harvested, while most others are not and furthermore have a
very poor survival rate, representing substantial damage to the reefs.

here is my new plant box OHF. Mya tatlong butas done by the experts using hot metal tube (GI pipe). One hole is for the intake coming form the pump, the hole on the flooring is the return hole and the one on the side is for the overflow just incase. The over flow will be connected to the return pipe via elbows and T- connectors.
