About Yourself: Some very nice men in white coats came and said they wanted to show me my new padded room.
Fish Kept: 3 Discus, 6 Tiger Barbs, 3 Chinese Algae Eaters, one Gold Nugget Pleco, and a Gold Chinese Algae Eater.
Corals/Plants Kept: 6 plants, not sure the name of them.
Tank Size: 38
Advice: Don't ever TRUST PETCO people! They don't know Sh*t! Bunch of dumb kids work there. One guy at the fish department told me it was okay to use the drops for alges, and fin rots and it killed 7 of my fish except for my betta he was the only one that survived....Do the research online on the fish before buying and don't listen to what the petco people say about what's the amount of drops to use, read it and put alittle less then what it tells you to put.
Description: Discus My 38 Gallon Aquarium, 3 Discus, 6 Tiger Barbs, 3 Chinese Algae Eaters, one Gold Nugget Pleco, and a Gold Chinese Algae Eater. I'm using a Marineland C-Series Multi Stage Canister Filter C-220, the best fiter out there. I personaly think this filter is better then the Eheim, because it allows no bypass, it forces the water through the filter media trays and not around them, all the other canisters allow 40% to 60%.

About Yourself: l8r
Fish Kept: german breed red peacock.
Corals/Plants Kept: I have a few asst. swords and a few crypts on the left of which, i'm not sure the type. but should grow thin and curly,plus long. will update soon with some speices names.
Tank Size: 75
Advice: My advice is the same as most peoples, read everything you can find on the care of the speices of fish you like ,investigate future tanks mates just the same. Buy the biggest tank you can afford.Because water perameters won't change so drastically in larger tanks. Also and most important do not over stock your tank with fish,unless you have a large sump filtation system or an expensive canister filter. This i just my opinion but it will save you in the long run as far your pump's filter media cost's.. HOPE THIS HELPS.. ps. Can't find a special fish at you local pet shop? Thinking about trying an online store? Go to Bluegrass Aquatics.com and email Eddie Martin (owner) with any questions regarding speices you would like. It's just a better way to buy fish online.
