Quote: "Its not the size of the man in the fight but the size of the fight in the man".
About Yourself: I am a male singer/songwriter from central Scotland.I have a wife and 12 year old son who is also very interested in tropicals and has asked for his own tank to keep ONE arrowana!! (he probably will get one).
Fish Kept: Community fishes _ angels,platys,guppies etc.
Corals/Plants: A nice big artificial piece of coral that is very easy to keep and does not require special light.:).
Tank Size: 50 gallons
Advice: Change adequate amount of water weekly or at least every ten or so days to keep your fishes healthy and happy.Do NOT overfeed as this adds to water problems.If you have fed your fishes and come home with that bag of live brine shrimp or bloodworm, it is tempting to feed straight away but put them away till its time to feed them again.

About Yourself: I used to have a 55-gallon planted tank, but now I am in a smaller apt. so I am trying out the nano tank. So far, I think it is quite elegant, but we'll see how everything fares in the long run! I welcome all (constructive) feedback, so please let me know what you think!
Fish Kept: 3 Otocinclus affinis (a.k.a. Oto Cat) 1 Corydoras julii (a.k.a. Leopard Cory) 1 Corydoras splendens (a.k.a. Elegant or Emerald Cory) 1 Caridina japonica (a.k.a. Amano shrimp) In the future I would like to add: 10 Neocardinia heteropoda (a.k.a. Red Cherry Shrimp)
Corals/Plants: Eleocharis parvula (a.k.a. Dwarf Hairgrass) Hemianthus callitrichoides (a.k.a. Dwarf Baby Tears) In the future I would like to add: Vesicularia dubyana (Java moss) affixed to wood in the shape of a dwarf pine tree
Tank Size: 3 gallons
Advice: Less is more, unless you are talking about plants, in which case more is more! Understock, and in your first month, you are better off not stocking anything at all and letting the plants and bacteria work their magic.
