Quote: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. Proverbs 9:10
About Yourself: I'm 22 and married. I have a BFA in Online Interactive Design. I've been keep fish for 12+ years (Since I was like 11 or 12yrs old). I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was a child. I have always been fascinated by fish, oceans and aquatic life in general. I actually ended up being a web and graphic designer. I love keeping fish, it is my main passion after my passion and love for my wife and God.
Fish Kept: Currently, listed above, other than that, hundreds too many to name. Chichlids, tetras, barbs, etc.
Corals/Plants: Listed above. Other's that didn't do well were Pygmy chain sword (E. tenellus) and sagittaria subulata (dwarf sag). Sold an Echinidorus rose, got way to large and didn't accent the layout I was going for well. Few others I don't feel like listing
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Advice: Never give up, it's all worth it in the end. This is my first planted tank. And despite my extensive research and years of keeping fish, this tank was a virtual nightmare for like 1.5 months. This is 4 months after setup from late November in 2007. The photo is from 3/19/08
