Corals/Plants:Java Moss, a few small Java Ferns and one unknown Aqua Plants from PetCo. Watch out for these. Most aren't true aquarium plants and will die quick. The tank is new so my plants haven't grown a lot yet.

About Yourself:I am currently a part time student working towards a Bachelors of Science in Interactive Media Design. I like to express my creativity mostly through aquascaping, web design, and some photography. I grew up with little oddball tanks; mostly goldfish and guppy tanks, so aquaria has always been an interest of mine, but I have only recently become a fanatic of the hobby. I love designing different aquarium habitats and researching new species of fish.
Advice:My only advice for new hobbists would be to do a lot of research before setting up a new tank instead of just making impulse buys. Really read up on different types of fish, equipment, etc. It will really benefit you in the long run.
Description:55 gallon Malawi Rift:
White beach sand, 40lbs lace rock, Pangea Flatrock IV background (black), Eheim Pro II 2026 canister filter, Ebo Jager 200 Watt heater, All-Glass Twin-Tube strip light.
Description:We moved into a new house and there was an odd wall in the livingroom. I decided that I would build floor to ceiling oak book shelves down that wall so of course a big box of water in the center only made sense.
I had no fish tanks so I had to build or buy everything I needed and it was up and running in a month.
It is in the wall behind my couch and is now a healthy Tanganyikan community tank.
