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.
Fish Kept: 1 Metriaclima callainos, 2 Metriaclima lombardoi, 2 Metriaclima estherae (1 Red, 1 Albino)
Tank Size: 55 gallons
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.

Rated #38: 55 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank

Rated #38: 55 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank - 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.
