Hi lm new to fish keeping so lm looking for some help I have an old acid carboy made about 20 years ago of glass, now days made of reinforced plastic. lm thinking of using for a tank set up, it would only be for small fish such as guppies. I did see one on a tele program but just got a glimpse of it in the back ground being used as cold water set up. Do any of your members have such a set up or is it not possible to do Any help would be appreciated.
Hi notlaw and welcome to fishkeeping I would say it is not suitable for goldfish as the neck is not wide enough similar to a goldfish bowl, because its the air service that matters, I am not too sure if it would be suitable for tropical my thought is no, but maybe marc or our other tropical fish keepers can help you more there.
Thanks for the help and makeing me feel welcome in your forum I still think l would like small fish like guppies and neons, in a 4ft tank with the right plants ect it would look nice. the position l was going to put the carboy was in an exposed fire place, with the right lighting as well it should make a nice focel point. so if any of you members have done or have pictures would be nice to see them posted on forum.
