About Yourself:I am a veterinary technician/rx/holistic assistant. I have a saltwater reef tank as well. The other party involved likes to get his hands dirty and works at a skate shop. He also has a small Ram Cichlid/Neon Tetra tank. We have had this particular tank running for about a month and a half now after combining two 55 gallon tanks. The biggest Oscar in here is about 11 inches long. The Green Terror is female and lays eggs every month.
Fish Kept:South American Cichlids: two Tigers Oscars, two Jack Dempseys, one Green Terror. Misc fish include:
2 spotted plekos,
2 Black Ghost Knives
About Yourself:I've always loved keeping fish. I find the tank maintenence great therapy in the rush of everyday life and love to sit and watch my fish with a glass of wine! They're very relaxing and rewarding!
Fish Kept:A simple community tank right now while my tank matures. Will add a school of congo tetras as my showcase fish once I have a few more months of aging on this tank.
Advice:Research and read. It's hard to not get impatient when setting up a new tank because it's exciting to buy and introduce new fish. But the "fun" will soon end if you begin dealing with murky, messy water and dead fish by not knowing and understanding cycling. It also NEVER ceases to amaze me how little most pet store employees know about fish. Especially the big box stores. I've heard some of the worst advice being given to people who are trying to get started and I always feel badly for them. Rely on your own research and/or friends in the hobby and research not only tanks, filters, water, etc but also the fish you want to keep! And beware of the "Noah syndrome" by buying two of every fish. Schools of species are much more interesting and fun to watch.
