Advice:Careful what size fish you have in your tank together don`t add any fish that might be able to fit in another fish`s mouth. Make sure you have proper filtration and do your water changes of at least 30% every two-three weeks.
About Yourself:I'm a vet tech for small animals. I always enjoyed the tank that was at 1 of my previous jobs. I started small with an old 30g tank I had from when I was a teenager. I started with barbs, loaches, guaramis, & neons. I had lots and lots of failed attempts til I stopped over fussing. Now due to my ex boss not wanting her ci chlids anymore when the tank sprung a leak at work I offered to take what was in the tank warning her that all her fish may not make it in my tank. At the time that I took them I had 2 very large Oscars, a Dempsey, a convict, a few other cichlids. She really could care less for them so in they went. A few didn't make it but the convict & what I believe is some sorta peacock chichlid (which can possibly also b a hybrid when I took it in). They cross bred several times giving me some neat hybrids. Who would of thought.
Advice:Don't believe everything you read. When I 1st started fish keeping about 10 years ago or so I use to change the water every 1-2 weeks because that's what I read in a freshwater fish keeping book. But just the water too didnt know you had to vacuum the gravel! Needless to say I couldn't figure out why my fish kept dying since their aquarium & filter were so immaculately clean.
Description:Assorted cichlid tank. Started calling it bikini bottom because of the sponge Bob house & figurine my 4 year old said we needed to have in there. This tank is always a work in progress as I'm always adding , removing, & remodeling it when I'm able to.
About Yourself:I started the hobby in 1991. My first tank was a 20 gallon. I had it for about 10 years then sold it to downsize terrible mistake. I still have the ten gallon aquarium also 30 gallon, a 75 gallon custom aquarium along with the 90 gallon aquarium. I am a cook at our local high school and coach girls basketball. I am also a mobile DJ you can find me on Facebook at Soundfunk Express. I am officially an aquarium junkie, I mean enthusiast.
Advice:Do research on the type of fish you would like to have, if different species make sure they are compatible tank mates. Check out the necessary size of aquarium and filtration required to raise your fish. Research the food,chemicals and the media for maintaining your aquarium. Most of all only purchase any aquarium that's within your budget and maintenance affordability.
