Community Aquariums

Here are some examples of community aquariums kept by some of the readers. Please understand that these are examples of what some of the readers are keeping and by no means represent ideal or optimum stocking levels. Some go against all principals of good aquarium management. Badman's does not agree or disagree with them and posts them here for informational purposes only, I will however give my opinion on the stocking levels. Do not use them as a template for your aquarium and do not take the green check as an endorsement of your set up. It simply means for the time being your aquarium is not overstocked, further research is needed on your part to check on specific requirements for your fish to allow them proper conditions to thrive. I STRONGLY suggest that if you have any questions you read the information from the main site or visit the sites message forum. Use them to get a better idea on how to set yours up and what to keep in them. Remember all fish should be researched before purchasing. Please use this FORM to submit your tank.

If you do not see your aquarium listed here within a week or so of submitting it is probably because the the form was not filled out as requested. I cut and paste the results so if you use all caps or add different punctuation marks it forces me to write them by hand and I have found it takes up too much of my time. Please try again and I will gladly add your aquarium here.

Badman's opinion on stocking levels
Overstocked now and / or bad combination of species. Check potential fish size and temperament
Caution, will be overstocked with potential fish growth and / or bad combination of species
OK stocking level only, each inhabitant should be researched. This does not take into account behavioral traits such as schooling, swimming level and special dietary needs.
Not enough specific fish information
These are my general thoughts, each aquarium will differ slightly based on your maintenance schedule and equipment.

The icons usually indicate that one or more of the fish are either too large or soon will outgrow the tank. While many of the fish will survive in smaller tanks they will not flourish and when kept in cramped conditions are more prone to disease. It may be time to upgrade to a larger tank or remove the fish. Please do not take it as an insult or criticism , we are just trying to promote a healthy environment for our pets. As always research your purchase before buying it for you setup.
