New tank at the work office
 
Got permission to put up a tank at work, and since I am not allowed to set one up until mid-October due to a promise, I made Minion do it, much to his dismay. >:) Anyway, one of my other co-workers was going fishing at lunch, so I went with him: he fished (not even a nibble), I caught (using a bucket and a minnow trap). 4 Large Mouth Bass (only 2 in the 10 gallon tank, and will get moved home into the 75 once they get a little bigger), a Crawdad, and a bunch of food-sized minnows later, I have a stocked tank!!!
:fish10::fish10::fish10::fish10::fish10::fish10::fish10::fish10:

And since we all love pictures:

Full pic, with the minnows schooling in the top of the front right corner:

So this is a fish cycle? Also who's minion?

The filter was cycled in my 55s. The rocks and tank weren't, but all the bacteria needed is already in the filter.

Minion is one of my co-workers, I'm his boss so I call him Minion, which is his official title. Lol

Haha, did you make him set it up exactly to your standards? Also what size is the tank?

Hello we...

Don't mean to poo poo the tank at work idea, but what if your job, for whatever reason doesn't work out? Either for you or your boss? Might be a little embarrassing having to spend time breaking down the tank before leaving. Don't you think? Unless your dad is the boss. What's the tank maintenance schedule? Before or after working hours? What about a water accident, oops?

Just a couple thoughts. Good luck.

LOL Funny you mention that. My bar tank is up there with the fish getting fed but thats about it. I promised I would leave it and clean it when it needs. My dad owns the bar.... And still I dont like going back up there. Fish are well fed and happy though so no worries on my end.

You put a fish tank in a bar? Well then, I hope the drunken people can't get to it and pour beer into it :frown2:. Also your dad owns the bar? Cool, do you get a discount on the beer? :smile2:

The are respectful. Also not allowed to sit beer on top of the tank. Trust me they are watched. It being a private club we know the members. As for a discount yes I could but I don't drink so its unnecessary. Add to the fact I dont go anymore anyhow, unless I am caring for the tank.
