Quote: What's more baby I can cook
About Yourself: I had fish as a kid and always said I would get another tank as an adult. My husband finally purchased a 30 gallon for my birthday. That was in 1992. I have been hooked ever since. In the early days I kept a community tank and eventually decided that I loved the cichlids of South America. I kept dwarf cichlids for a few years and then moved to Angelfish. I have had some sort of Angelfish in my tank for the last few years. I had a brief stint with Altum Angels and now I am in love with Discus. Ironically enough when I changed teh tank I was going to invest in a group of pearl gourami's thus the dark background and dark substrate. Discus usually look better (don't pepper or darken) with lighter background and substrate but they were a gift. Once the plants grow in not much of the substrate will show anyway.
Fish Kept: Discus, a clown pleco, two panda cories and a school of Lemon Tetras. I'm also saving to buy a group of sterbai cories. There is also a lone rummy nosed tetra left. I had those for years and they began to die off. Not sure if there is an ugly old picture of a rummy under my tank somewhere this fish has to be at least 6 years old.
Corals/Plants: Cryptocoryne balanse Cryptocoryne lutea Cryptocoryne parva Cryptocoryne pontederifolia Cryptocoryne retrospiralis Cryptocoryne wendtii bronze, red, green Eleocharis parvula (Dwarf hairgrass) Microsorum pterous (Java Fern) Nymphaea zenkeri (Red Tiger Lotus) Vesicularia dubyana (Java Moss)
Tank Size: 75 gallons
Advice: Read, read, read. Grab every book, magazine internet article you can find on the fish and plants you are interested in. There is a lot of misinformation out there on the internet but the more you read the quicker you will be able to decipher fact from fiction.

Quote: "A great tank keeper is one who knows every inch of the tank, every rock, every current, every hide out as good as the fish who live within it." ~Me 2010

Advice: DON'T RUSH IT! I know thats its exciting to set up a fish tank but trust me, you will be sorry if you rush into things before your ready, or your tank is ready. -CYCLE YOUR TANK FIRST, check and test your water regularly! I look at my temp gauge probably 30 times a day because heaters do act up sometimes and you need to catch it before the temp goes crazy high or low. -LOOK...at your fish, each one every day, notice if they change behavior, look for bite marks, nipped fins, signs of disease like ich or velvet, fin rot etc. Are they eating? Do you have one fish that hogs all the food? feed accordingly. DONT OVERFEED! ONLY ONE PERSON SHOULD FEED THE FISH! that way overfeeding it less likely to occur. WEAR GLOVES when you are putting your hands in the water, for your own protection! -RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH, find out for yourself... and always double check any and all info with mutiple sources and then use your best judgement. Never assume petstore people are telling you anything thats is right because 9 times out of 10 they are WRONG, and you, your wallet and your fishes pay for it big time. ~And lastly please please DO NOT TAP ON THE GLASS! Fish hate that! Anytime fish become stressed they release ammonia which is like poison for all the fish in your tank! Good Luck:)
