I got bored, so I decided to set up a small 3 gallon aquarium.

The clownfish is a true percula (Amphiprion percula). The live rock is from the Marshall Is. Not much coralline algae, but the structure is beautiful.



Enjoy.

Yeah. A small fish tank while reading the bible is ideal. It helps to get away from the world and a life addicted to T.V. LOL

I don't think I'll get as crazy as I did with my last tank.

Enjoy.

That is a really good idea. I don't think I could care for the fish. I have often thought about buying one with a filter and leaving it empty, just for the tranquil sights and sounds of a fish tank.

I have a 75 gallon salt water tank. I put a small little plaque on it that reads:

He has made His wonderful works to be remembered - Ps 111:4

Right now it needs a little clean'in, I'll try to take some pics after I get off my keester and clean it up some. :)

And if you get bored, you can put your computer in a aquarium.

And yes the computer works. But it's not water in the tank. It's mineral oil which is as clear as water.

I'd prefer not to mix the two, the toxic fumes may kill the fish B) .
