About Yourself: A photographer and graphic designer by trade, I've long enjoyed taking care of an aquarium, because it's a lot like working in a darkroom. There's chemistry and method and skill involved, but it's very relaxing, and when you see the results of your work, there's a sense of accomplishment, pride and even peace. I prefer a natural-looking environment in my aquarium, though I do also prefer artificial plants, because planted aquariums are a bit more work than I have time for (much like saltwater/reef aquariums). Video of my aquarium can be seen at: http://youtu.be/iVifqpdDWb0
Fish Kept: Fire Red Dwarf Gourami, Gold Panda Lyretail Mollies, Red Tuxedo Guppiess, Zebra Danios, Neon Black Tetras, Rainbow Fish, Hillstream Loach, Platty, Bolivian Rams, Bloodfin Tetras, Black Angelfish, Gold Gourami
Corals/Plants Kept: None (except artificial plants)
Tank Size: 60
Advice: Do your homework (read every aquarium site and forum you can find), get a good test kit (API master test kits are excellent), don't panic when your water clouds up when you first set up your tank, even when clarifiers won't get rid of it (this is just bacterial bloom, and it'll clear up on its own as the tank gets established), keep up on your water changes and gravel vacuuming, don't overstock, don't overfeed, don't over-treat with chemicals, and, most importantly, don't over-fuss. It's easy to take care of your tank and your fish as long as you approach it as being nothing more than a series of very simple steps that, if you follow them, will just work out.

Advice: If I were to give anyone words of advice I would tell them to be patient, good things take time to develop. Too many people rush into things and fail to allow their aquariums to reach their full potential. Read as much as can, books and forums are great tools. This hobby has many great people ready and able to answer almost all questions thrown their way. So if you're unsure about anything please ask. Hopefully as the years pass this hobby will become more accessible; with new technologies developing rapidly it's an exciting time to be in this hobby.
