About Yourself:Hello Guys, thank you for voting!!! I started with a Betta a few years ago on my office desk, LOL. I knew nothing about fish keeping when I started. I went and purchased a 30 gallon freshwater tank and all the starter stuff, I enjoyed community tank environments which lead to add a 90 gal aquarium next. Another thing was dealing with independent fish stores (not big box for advice) and talking with the owners they helped me add compatible mates because this reduces aggression and my sanity. All my fish are aggressive and you have to be willing to remove a tank mate if they are not fitting in (exchange it or give it away after trying to isolating it for a couple days in a hang on plastic jail). I found the larger the tank the easier it was to maintain the water condition, less swings and this made the whole experience more enjoyable for me. I took the plunge six months ago to add a built-in 220 gallon aquarium which is in the picture here, I love it!!! I do two 25% water changes every week because I like to feed my fish lots (2x?s a day) but with that comes the work of maintaining the chemistry and canister cleanings. I feed fresh in the morning and granules in the late afternoon to keep everyone happy. Note: I also started with hang on filters but found that when I would come home I could smell the fish; this was solved with installing a closed filtration system (Canister filtration) huge difference and well worth the money. I have learned lots from talking with long time fish people, reading and watching online. Have a great day, thanks again for your vote.

About Yourself:This is just a little hobby/project I began as a tool to relax, excited to see where this little journey takes me; so far I`m 29 weeks into this.

Advice:Do a fair regular water change, I do twice a week water changes. Always make sure you use your water conditioners to keep the water safe for the fish, I also use a bio enhancer with each water change to ensure there is enough good bacteria kept in the tank.

Advice:Look at Michael's or Hobby Lobby for plastic plants for your aquariums, they are much cheaper. None of the plants in our tank are from a fish supply store. Learn from your mistakes. Enjoy! No such thing as too much filtration.
