Quote: If it can't be solved by talking to a fish, it can't be solved.
About Yourself: I live in Southern California and am a psychotherapist. My interests include golf, poker, my 2 dogs and 2 cats, and now my fish. I don't remember why I got my first Betta about 4 years ago, but that got me hooked on having at least one Betta nearby. In recently learning that keeping Bettas in vases is actually cruel, I was exposed to the fish/aquarium hobby, fell in love with it, and got a real tank. Now I can't keep my arm out of it or my eyes off it.
Fish Kept: 7.5 Gallon Cube Planted 3 Female Bettas 80 Gallon Long Established March 2009. 3 Pearl Gourami, 1 Angelfish, large school of Neon Tetras, 6 Tiger Barbs, 4 Emerald Green Corydora, several Otocinclus, 1 Yo-Yo Loache. 29 Gallon SeaClear Tank 6 Blue Tetras, 4 Badis Badis, and 3 Bolivian Rams (Larry, Mo, and Curly). 20 Long Planted 2 Dwarf Chain Loaches, 3 Corydoras Pygmaeus, 3 Otocinclus, 1 Red Shrimp, 3 Amano Shrimp, 6 Black Neon Tetras, 5 Sparkling Gourami, a few Microrasboras. 10 Gallon Planted Red Cherry Shrimp Tank 10 Gallon Planted 1 White Crayfish (Snowball) 4 Zebra Danios
Tank Size: 10
Advice: Start slowly, buy the biggest tank you can properly support (weight/dimension wise) in your home, thoroughly research the fish's wants/needs before you buy them, and consider fishless cycling as a humane option. Don't keep bettas in bowls and do keep schooling fish in *schools*.
Description: This is my 55 gallon tank with live plants. It has been up since March with plants being added slowly since then. For decor I used driftwood and large black rocks. Filtration is an Aqueon 55 HOB and an extra Penguin 150 HOB. I keep the temp at 78 degrees. The lighting is Coralife CF at 5wpg on 6 hours per day. I use pressurized CO2. For livestock I have 1 angelfish, 3 pearl gourami, 7 tiger barbs (no, they don't bother anyone), a large school of neon tetras, 4 emerald green corycats, 2 yo-yo loaches, 7 amano shrimp, 7 otocinclus. Be gentle, I'm new at this!
