About Yourself:Have been keeping tropical and coldwater tanks since my teens. Moved to fake plants several years ago and never looked back. Though I think planted tanks look great I am happy with plastic/silk.
Likewise, Love marine tanks but quite happy with tropical in my own home.
Happy with a 130l setup - nice balance between size, maintenance and cost of upkeep.
Fish Kept:Current tank contents:
5x Amino Shrimp
3 x Peppered Cory
7 x White Fin Bentos Tetra
1x Drawf Guarami.
Advice:Dont rush the tank setup.
Always upgrade the filter.
Invest in decent silk plants if you are going down this root. The more expensive plants look much more realistic.
Description:Many of you saw the previous incarnation of this tank several weeks back. Well this is take two, which incorporates many of the subtle improvements I was planning to implement. The tank is designed simply to be a colorful centrepiece to my living room. As such it is not replicating any particular habitat. I Just want it to pop!
About Yourself:I've had a fish tank since I was a kid. At 40 years old and successful, I am able to afford all of the more exotic wild-caught fish and goodies. I've been around the world and am multi-lingual. I have seen many beautiful aquariums and built this one the way I've always wanted it.
Advice:Start with the biggest and best you can afford. It will pay off in the long run. Spend time understanding H2O chemistry and read and learn about everything you're trying to accomplish before you try anything.

Description:Pseudotropheus Saulosi, dominant male completed the color change with several other males right behind him. A few clown lab and BN pleco to keep them company.
Algae covered lime stone and African roots give them plenty of places to hide.
Advice:Make the best of what you have to work with. Not everyone has a 120 gallon aquarium to work with. You can make great aquascapes with limited tank space if you use your imagination.
Description:20 Gallon freshwater tank with custom 3D background and rockscape. Uses two aquaclear 50 gallon HOB filters and heater incorporated into the 3D background. This tank was a lot of fun to build and goes to show you can do a lot with small spaces.
