Fish Kept: Too many to list. Mixed African Cichlid tank
Corals/Plants: none
Tank Size: 125 gallons
Advice: Take your time and DONT USE CHARCOAL!!!!(please read ahead as to why!!) If you decide to not use charcoal (and save a lot of $$), you MUST do at least a 30% water change at least once every other week. My tank is a little overstocked (they are African Cichlids!) and I do a 30% water change every week. They are breeding like crazy and it's the easiest tank to take care of.

About Yourself: Used to breed koi when i was a kid
Fish Kept: Various south american cichlids (dempsey, texas, brasiliensis, a few firemouths, cons) Mbuna & Hemichromis variants Aequidens Bala sharks, black sharks, clown loach, other botia, ancistrus, pictus, synodontis, a dozen corys, danios and even a shoal of platies :) A mad mixture of fish, but there's plenty of room and tank is stable and peaceful except at feed time. Other (6ft) tank has guppies, platies, swordtails, corys, rams and a big ol' severum who's just celebrated his 8th birthday
Corals/Plants: Cryptocorynes, swords, anubias, vallus, canadian pondweed, water lettuce, dwarf water lillies. For the bigger hericthys, fake plants are better although they don't like to eat java moss.
Tank Size: 400 gallons
Advice: Start gradually. Dont over crowd Dont over feed Big tanks are easier to manage. Dont skimp on decor as it reduces aggression between species and reduces stress on scaredy fish coz they can hide up. Many plants are very sensitive to water chemistry, persevere to find the right type. And buy decent filters and heating systems
