Quote:Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit. ------ Vince Lombardi
About Yourself:My son and I started a tank, well I got hooked and now have 3, one is his so he says... The time I spend maintaining and designing the tanks is a very relaxing part of my day to come home and enjoy them...
Fish Kept:56 gallon
Gouramis, ??loach, Black Skirt and Columbian Tetras, Albino Bristlenose Pleco, Golden Killiefish, Rainbow Shark, Blue Cray (Clarki I was told)------
Rosy Barbs, Serpea Tetras, Glass catfish, Bristlenose Pleco, a Zebra Danno ------
Orange Crayfish (I don't know what kind it is supposed to stay small) African Cichlids and before anyone says anything about Cichlids in a small tank they are 1" - 2" and we are planning on building a 60 to 75 gallon tank for them as they grow...
Corals/Plants:artificial, reading up on planting not dabbling in them yet plan on turning my 20 gallon into a 100% planted tank.
About Yourself:I've been keeping freshwater fish for for about 10 years. Im not interested in huge extravagant tanks, just simple and self sufficient environments. Cichlid's are my fish of choice and I have recently taken up freshwater plant keeping as a challenge.
Fish Kept:2 marbled veil angels, 2 black veil angles, 2 mixed veil angels, 3 Dojos, 1 Kuhli loach, 3 Clown loaches (1 5 inch, 2 inch and 1 inch, I had a breading pair of angels and the Male died because of old age and the female soon followed after his death.
Fish Kept:Fish Inventory:
Ive had this tank for under a year now. I have a 125 gallon tank made into a community tank with assorted South African Cichlids, a Albino and a Tiger Oscar, Afra Cichlid, Tiger Barbs, Severums, Tire Track and a Peacock Eel, Danio Minnows, Red Tail Rainbow Shark, Silver Dollars, Plecos and more...over 50 fish in there right now
Leporinus-Violent killed high fin banded shark
Red Belly Pacu-Too big too fast and pretty aggressive
Corals/Plants:Live Rocks, Variety of fake plants. I place life plants here and there for the fish to feed on.
Advice:Plan what you want to do with the tank otherwise be ready to spend a whole lot of money on fish. Also if your starting community and unaware if they are compatible keep a night light for them cause they may get eaten over night
Description:Ive had this tank for under a year

Barbs, Severums, Tire Track and a
Peacock Eel, Danio Minnows, Red Tail
Rainbow Shark, Silver Dollars,

I use a 48" T5 double ballast light,
a Fluval405 filter, Aqueon 30-60
waterfall filter. I have Led lights
for a little extra color and a
curtain wand to keep the fish more
active. Most of my plants are
artificial but I have 50 lbs of live
rocks in there for the new small
cichlids that were born. I have a
splitter in tank to separate Albino
Oscar since he ate a dozen of my
other cichlids in there. I have a
little over 50 fish in there right
now. I had an addiction to buy.
Slowing down letting it chill and
run their course. Enjoyable little
