About Yourself: I've been in the hobby for about 3 years. It got started when I was never allowed to have a legit pet and a buddy got me really into his beautiful jewel and white tail acei cichlid. We started building tanks together and after a year I did other things. Here I am and here is my little peice of heaven that I call my pets home. I also have to move frequently so the tank has never been in established for more then 8months. I will be moving again in the summer of 17 and do not look forward to putting my fish through the stress again a

About Yourself: Received my first tank, a 10gal for a ninth grade Graduation present and kept going since. I have had just about every size, color, and species of fish from one time to another including Marine since the 80's. Then I took a few well needed years away from even looking at a tank. i think it gave me a new outlook on the hobby when I ran across pictures of different types of Shrimp and the many colors. I dove in, I started my first "Live Plant" tank. After several disappointments trying all kinds of plants, I found a few that work for the equipment I owned already. Shrimp followed soon after and I purchased eight Cherry Shrimp. Now I have hundreds. I sell the excess back to the same pet shop that sold me the first eight and I have a gift card that continues to build equity, Since, I have had Cory babies and I am hopeful that the Kuhlies will begin breeding as well.

Advice: Start small, but always think big. Trial and error is the fastest way to learn what not to do. just keep using common sense, have a lot of patience, and your vision will come true.
