Quote: "A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?"- Albert Einstein
About Yourself: I started when I was 12 after envying a tank at my library. I did the research and started with a ten gallon which ran successfully for a year until we moved. So far, it's been my healthiest tank, though I've gained so much more practical knowledge.
Fish Kept: Over the years and in different tanks: Tropical Freshwater: Platties, Swordtails, Neon Tetras, Corydoras, Clown Loach, Rosy Barbs, Chinese algea eater Coldwater Freshwater: Goldfish (Commons, Orandas, Ryunkins, Lionheads, Comets, Fantails, Telescope Eyes, Pearlscales), Dojo loaches, Bristlenose pleco, White Cloud Mountain Minnows
Corals/Plants: Java Ferns and Moss (easy!) Amazon Sword Ludwig Wisteria ...and others I can't remember
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Advice: RESEARCH! Make the Nitrogen Cycle an important part of this research, and don't skimp on the time it requires. With goldfish, 10 gallons per fish is a good rule for those new to the hobby.

Quote: "If you haven’t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me." - Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1884-1980)
About Yourself: I'm a student finishing up university, doing a double major, honours, in Law & Human Rights with plans for further education. (Either international human rights law to be studied in Europe or law school to be taken here in Canada.) I pursue fish as a hobby, because I find it relaxing and rewarding, in addition to some of my other hobbies which include traveling, reading, writing, music, and reptiles. I've lived abroad in Germany and plan to live in other countries again down the line - there's nothing like being immersed in another culture!
Fish Kept: Discus. Piranha (p. nattereri, s. sanchezi, s. rhombeus). Oscars. Green terrors. Silver dollars. Clown loaches. Zebra loaches. Various live bearers (guppies, platies, molies, endler's, etc). Various tetras (cardinal, neon, head & tail light, black neon, buenos aires, etc). Bettas (veil, delta, crown, double). And probably a ton more I'm forgetting, this is just off the top of my head...
Corals/Plants: Here's a few... Hygrophelia corymbosa 'Siamensis 53B' Lilaeopsis novae-zealandiae Lilaeopsis macloviana Ceratopteris thalictroides Alternanthera reineckii ''roseafolia'' ('Pink') // Red Temple Anubias barteri v.
