About Yourself: I will be brutally honest, I never wanted fish. I am a reptile man at heart. I would go into the pet store to get supplies and rodents and I would see how my kids were FASCINATED by the fish in the tanks. I would have never did a fish tank in my life if it wasnt for my 2 year old daughter looking into a fishtank and saying OOOOOOOOOO WWWWWWOW! I knew then that a fishtank might be very beneficial for my children and my stress relief
Fish Kept: Platys, guppies, swordtails, corys, asst plecos, raphael cats, Del Rio's, neon tetras, siamese algae eaters and bloodfin teras
Corals/Plants Kept: Anubias and amazon swords and java ferns

Advice: Seek and ye shall find. Ebay can be your best friend and the pet shop your worst enemy. Buy smart, buy in bulk and read seller feedback.
Description: I have gotten lost in this magical place MANY a night. On a side note, If you try to enlarge this picture or use the magnifier it gets very grainy. I have never had this problem before with any of my past entries. If someone knows how to fix this issue that would be fantastic.

Fish Kept: Too many to list. Mixed African Cichlid tank
Corals/Plants Kept: none
Tank Size: 125
Advice: Take your time and DONT USE CHARCOAL!!!!(please read ahead as to why!!) If you decide to not use charcoal (and save a lot of $$), you MUST do at least a 30% water change at least once every other week. My tank is a little overstocked (they are African Cichlids!) and I do a 30% water change every week. They are breeding like crazy and it's the easiest tank to take care of.
