nah... no worries man, you have lotsa live plants and such. Toss in some minnows and that Tank will cycle SUPER FAST. I got a 130G tank Pefect for all levels in only 3 days! All you need is minnows and LIVE PLANTS. Plus thats cool you only have one of them. They get REALLY mean if they are alone. We have 1 thats alone and he's nuts. Kills fish just for shits and gggles. Doesn't even eat some...

Those bubbles on the side of the tank usually mean the tank was just set up. Those bubbles are from clorine and clhoramines that are evaporating from the water. Thats the stuff that your local water companies dissolve into your water to try to keep it safe for drinking. Not the best stuff to have in a tank with fish. Did you cycle your tank before adding your red? Hopefully all turns out well. Good luck. Nice fish by the way.

What's the size of your hand? 4"? 10"?

Anyways, that red looks very colorful to me, so I think he's not stressed out much...
And are those bubbles not just air bubbles: where I live, they don't add a lot of sh*t to the tap water, and every time I set up a tank, I'll have the same bubbles (hell, they even show up when I fill up a jar with fresh tap water...)

Very nice redbelly, M
What's he like, character wise? Skittish?

Those bubbles are from the tace amount of chlorines they put in drinking water. When clorine escapes form being disolved in water, it comes out as gas. Therefore, you get bubbbes.

I was gonna say the exact same thing when I saw the bubbles in the background from your RB pic.
