Advice:Been keeping fish for about 2 years. Make sure you do weekly water changes and check for water parameters are in safe levels. Buy a tank big enough for the fish as they grow. Also research fish so you don't get major aggression issues. I have 3 snoody mid-sized cichlids. They all get along alright, except the Green Texas Cichlid gets chased around a lot.

About Yourself:I've been in the hobby for over 20 years. My grandfather gave me my first tank as a pre-teen, and i've been hooked ever since. I would love to have giant tanks everywhere, if I could. My love for the Angelfish has grown over the years, and I say, why not always have angels in the house?
Corals/Plants:Tetra Water Wonder Artificial Plants with resin rock base. And a few cheaper plastic plants. The yellow flowers around the right piece of wood are now algae covered and the same happend to the orange flowers behind the left driftwood. Time to get in there and clean them up I guess.

About Yourself:I had a South American Cichlid tank in college prior to the emergence of the internet and thereby readily available information. I had no idea what I was doing and it went badly. Since then I have always wanted to do another tank, but this time I had a clue about what I was doing.
Fish Kept:Demasoni, Yellow Labs, Cobalt Blues, Dwarf Afra (waiting to see if they mix with the Demasoni OK) I am finding out its the Demasoni that don't mix well with the Demasoni, I started with too few of them I think.

Once your tank is set up chill out with the beverage of your choice and feel your blood pressure lower as you enjoy your tank (great for ignoring commercials as well).
