Quote: Chuck Norris can kill to stones with one bird.
About Yourself: Something about me... well, I'm a chemistry student and I live in the Netherlands, and my hobby is, obviously, keeping goldfish :)
Fish Kept: 2 goldfish, orange veiltails
Corals/Plants: Anibias nana, Valisnera americana, Egeria densa, Hygrophila difformis and Hygrophila polysperma and some traces of Vesicularia dubyana.
Tank Size: 29 gallons
Advice: Trying to keep goldfish in a planted tank can, and will, be very, very frustrating. It takes a lot of time, and patience to make anything green grow in a goldfish tank. But, it's worth it :)
Description: My orange veiltail goldfish, Hugo, he's pretty, isn't he :) Note that the plants are not jet eaten in this picture, though it was taken only a few days before the full tank shot was taken.

About Yourself: Brand new in the hobby, but have several friends who know the hobby, and have helped me out. Thanks for looking!
Fish Kept: 3 Bolivian Rams, 3 Apistogramma Cacatuoides, 5 Asstd Platys, 5 Otocinclus, 4 Peppered Corys, 1 Cardinal Tetra, 2 Bamboo shrimp, 15 Ghost shrimp, , Believe it or not, everyone gets along 110%. I thought I would lose a few ghost shrimp, but they have not been touched., , I'm at maximum capacity, so I do 25% water changes/vacuuming every 1.5 weeks., , Feed: Flake and NLS Cichlid Formula, and freeze-dried brine shrimp every few days.
Corals/Plants: All plastic and silk. A combination of Sea Garden, Tetra Water Wonders, and Penn Plax plants.<br> <br> I use Malaysian driftwood, which really accentuates the tank.
Tank Size: 72 gallons
Advice: Research!!! My tank is relatively young, and I learned from my mistakes. Until my tank was properly cycled, I did unfortunately lose a couple platys and tetras. Now, I am correctly cycled, and everyone inside is happy.
Description: My male Apistogramma Cacatuoides. I have to give him credit for coming to the front of the tank, trying to showoff, and stare down a 200 lb man, hehe. He's the little king of the tank.

Quote: Excellence is a Habit!
About Yourself: I'm a 22 year old college student with fish on the brain.
Fish Kept: 20-25 assorted africans 2 plecos 1 catfish
Corals/Plants: Plastic plants, not ready for the commitment of live plants.
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: Gertting started is not easy! But once you do just keep on truckin. It takes alot of time and money but if you are into it, It's worth It! Study up on your species of fish and keep them as healthly as you can, there is nothing more pathetic then sick fish. My number one problem getting started was keeping my lights on too long and constantly battling algae blooms. Do not keep your lights on more then 8 hours a day. Buy a timer!
Description: If you are rating this picture real low can you send me a message why. I thought this was a good picture of a great looking fish.
