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?
Fish Kept: Top Bunch: 7 Angelfish, 1 Gold Gourami, 1 Opaline Gourami, 2 White Cloud Minnows, and 8 Serpae Tetras, Ground Crew: 3 Clown Loaches, 2 Spotted Rafael Catfish, 1 Bumlbebee Catfish, 1 Red-tailed Shark and 1 Pleco
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.
Tank Size: 65 gallons
Advice: Read about the species before you buy. When stocking a community tank, peaceful fish go in first and the most aggressive species should go in last.

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.
