Quote: One day I want a fish tank big enough I can swim in.
About Yourself: I started out buying a 20 gal goldfish tank for my daughter and became obsessed. I rescued what I though was a pleco from a horrible fish store who actually turned out to be a lace catfish(now named Igor)and bought my first 75 gal for him to fit in. I bought my first "cichlid" a Jurupari named "Geo" soon after and I was hooked. The goldfish are now in a pond we built in the back yard and we now have 3 fish tanks.

Corals/Plants: None.
Tank Size: 125 gallons
Advice: Never overstock your fish tank. Always research a fish before purchasing it to know what you are getting into. Find a local small fish store and purchase your fish from them, dont shop big chains.
