Quote: A HAPPY TANK WILL MAKE A HAPPY HOME !
About Yourself: I have 7 tanks set up all around the house. 135gal, 55gal, two 29gal, 20gal, and two 10gal. I use the smaller tanks for breeding. I myself would rather set and watch my fish than watch tv.
Fish Kept: All afican cichlids. livinstonii, rostratus, venustus, (electric yellow,blue), lombardoi, powder blues, (cobalt, pearl, Red,ice blue redtop zebras) orange blossom peacocks and many many more.
Corals/Plants: Can't keep live plants with these guys do to the fact that live plants are in half of their diets. They will eat them. So I have been forced to use plastic plants.
Tank Size: 135 gallons
Advice: It is best to know everything there is to know about the fish before you buy it. Eating habit and its natural environment. Also water condition.

Quote: Don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow.(Only joking, of course)
About Yourself: Have kept a tropical tank for around 30 years and it's that long ago I can't remember what got me into it, probably the beauty of the fish in particular the Siamese Fighting Fish which I managed to breed a few years back. Sat up until around 2.30 am watching them fertilize the eggs and put them into the bubble nest. In general I just love keeping fish and find it rewarding once the tank is all set up and planted out well, the latter being the hardest to do for me. Pete.
Fish Kept: Main Tank Panda catfish -20 ish Bronze catfish -6 Peppered catfish - 8 Albino catfish - 8 Neon Tetra -20 Glowlight Tetra - 2 Black Emperor Tetra - 6 Silver Dollar - 2 Clown loach - 4 Zebra Danio - 8 Black Widows-2 Harlequins - 10 Rummy nose Tetra - 6 Humbug catfish- 1 Koi Angels - 2 Golden loach - 2 Khuli loaches - 8 Bottom tank 3 bronze cory's 3 albino catfish 1 female siamese (mum and dad have passed now) 1 sucking loach 20 neon tetras.
Corals/Plants: loads of assorted
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: Spend plenty of time observing your fish and don't forget to do regular water changes of around 15 to 20% once or twice a week, I do it twice a week. I now use RO water because I have tested my tap water and found that it is high in nitrate. I have my own RO filtration unit and also use the water for making cups of tea, which I must tell you tastes far better than tap water. Another thing to remember is always wash your filters in a bucket of water that you have just drained from your tank and NOT under the tap, if you have more than one filter as I do then you can clean one and leave the other for a month, this way you will always have good bacteria in one of them. There is plenty of good info on the net now, so just read up and filter the info to suit your particular needs.
