 This  is  my  first  cement  tank....  It's  more  than  15  years  old.
 It  has  been  my  favourite  tank   Smile   and  has  seen  somany  fishes   ......mollies..  goldfishes...  gouramies.....fighters....Koicarps...  Angel  fish..barbs..  danios.....plecos  ........now  chiclids(malawi)
 
 Once  during  a  water  change  i  accidently  hit  the  glass  of  the  tank  with  a  bucket   Sad  and  then  i  filled  the  tank  with  water  and  it  started  to  crack..  Shocked  .......  Then  got  some  mseal  and  fixed  it   Very Happy   (  It  happened  almost  5  years  back)......till  date  no  problem  ....except  the  looks....
 Whatever  fish  i  rear  in  this  tank  It  grows  faster  and  healthy  and  hence  I  love  this  tank.
 
 Here  comes  my  other  two  ...cement  tanks
 
 The  last  tank  ....is  goldfish  only  tank.......
 I  have  tried  breeding  goldfish  for  many  years...but  i  never  succeeded  in  it   before..
 Once  I  had  few  gold  fish  fries  which  were  almost  0.75  cm  when  i  spotted  it  in  a  heavily  planted  tank..........
 After  coming  here  to  IAH....  last  year  i  had  successfully  breed  the  following  fishes  -   Fighters.(Spl  thanks  to  Hayath....only  after  reading  his  article..  .I  tried  )...and.  Gourami...gold  fish......
 Gold  fish  and  the  Gold  fish  fries  which  i  have  bred  are  in  that  tank.
 Here  is  a  close  up  of  that  tank.  All  the  gold  fish  went  inside  when  i  went  there  to  shoot.  Surprised  ........(..They  might  have  thought  i  have  bought  gun  to  shoot....  Very Happy..   )  
 
 
 The  next  is  the  longest  tank  i  have  ......
 The  height  and  the  width  of  the  tank  is  very  less............  hence  all  i  have  is  smaller  fishes  in  this  tank..
 This  tank  has  around  200   Red  platies,  around  50+  White,  black  and  grey(hybrid)  mollies  ,  20+  Gouramies,  1  Angel,  a  Pink  color  Danio  Couple,  5  Tiger  Barbs..a  7"  Common  Pleco...10+  Siamese  Fighters........   1  Tetra.......etc.
 
 
 
 I  have  two  varities  of  plants  ...which  i  got  from  a  LFS  almost  2  years  back.....
 now  they  are  everywhere......but  they  were  better  a  couple  of  months  back.....
 These  plants  are  planted  in  Bowls  with  River  sand...
 
 
 In  the  second  Photo  you  mgiht  see  a  metal  container  (Drum)  in  the  corner  of  the  Picture..
 I  have  two  Drums.........One  with  4  iridescent  shark  8"(  -  2  Albino  and  2  Black  )+  2  Koi  Carp  about  7  "  and  1  Pleco  about  8".........  and  there  is  one  more  drum...  which  is  empty  now..since  all  the  Tilapia  fish  i  was  growing  in  it  died  last  month...when  somebody  not  knowingly   washed  a  cement  mixing  basin  in  it.  :cry:
 
 Other  than  this  i  have  two  tanks  for  Oscars  and  one  tank  for  Breeding........
 and  few  Bowls  for  Fighters.
 
 I  Just  wanted  to  share  my  tank  view  with  you  all  and   would  love  to  hear  comments  about  my  tank.

 Hey  Aquarist,  Nice  tanks  and  a  somewhat  different  setup  than  the  regular  in  house  tanks.  Thanks  for  sharing  the  pictures  and  details.
 
 I  guess  these  tanks  are  in  your  garden  area.  Don't  your  fishes  face  any  threat  from  birds  or  cats?

 It  may  sound  odd..
 i  don't  have  any  filteration  in  the  tank....
 I  don't  do  regular  50%  water  change.......
 I  normally  refill  the  water  when  it  gets  evaporated....
 I  do  a  100%  water  change  once  in  6  months.......(i  have  a  water  outlet  pipe  there  in  the  bottom)

 Thanks  Mr.Kaushik,
 Actually  when  i  saw  the  crack  Shocked  ...  I  just  drained  the  water  and  left  it  dry  and  then  got  MSeal  and  just  applied  it  on  both  sides  Very Happy  ........that's  it.  ..just  did  it  as  a  temporary  solution..  but   i  didn't  face  any  problem  other  than  the  odd  look...
 I  should  have  changed  the  glass...but  then  everything  has  to  be  reworked  entirely....  ...  and  i  wonder  whether  it  will  be  leak  proof  as  i  have  it  now...  hence  i  left  it  as  it  is  ......

 Thanks  for  your  compliment  Mr.Prakash,
 Yes  these  tanks  are  in  outdoors......
 Till  date  i  don't  have  any   problem  with  birds  and  Cats....
 Birds  .......sometimes  Crows  come  here  to  drink  water(but  very  rarely).
 Cats  ........  earlier  there  were  many  stray  cats  which  roam  near  this  tank...but  never  caught  a  fish.........   Very Happy  
 The  problem  which  i  faced  during  these  years  are  ......
 My  mollies  esp  red  mollies  .........tend  to  .jump  out  of  the  tank  when  it  starts  to  rain.  Sad  ..
 Algae  bloom......Sad

 Even  I  have  a  cemented  tank,  but  I  have  never  seen  its  bottom.  So  much  of  algae.  Was  wondering  if  there's  a  way  to  get  rid  of  it  without  damaging  plants.  Am  thinking  of  installing  pressurised  CO2  in  it.
