About Yourself: Been in the hobby off and on over 35 years. Recently been breeding gold angelfish and these long finned albino bristlenose.
Fish Kept: Long finned albino bristlenose (2 males, 3 females and offspring). 3 Panda corydoras. 22 kuhlii loaches. 1 golden eel loach (hides in the gravel). Red cherry shrimps. North Australian chameleon shrimps. Numerous baby blonde guppiies (temporary only).
Corals/Plants: Low light plants: Crypts, Pink baby tears, Aponogeton, African water fern, Red tiger lotus, Anubias, Ludwigia repens, Java moss.
Tank Size: 60 gallons
Advice: Consider using rain water. No chemical treatment required and ideal for plants and fish suited to soft water. Our collected rainwater has a PH of 5.0, but fortunately this is being naturally buffered to 7.0 by the large pink rocks seen in the aqurium. Try to understock the aquarium. Some plants were planted in shallow plastic dishes containing organic fertiliser covered with sand and gravel.

About Yourself: I am a currently a part time student and full time worker... Only one more year to go.. Woo Hoo!! I was always interested in having a fish tank but never new were to start until my coworker gave me my first fish in a two gallon tank. I then quickly upgraded to a 15 gallon and now I currently have a 40 gallon tank and am looking to upgrade to a 100 gallon tank in the near future.
Fish Kept: 5 Clown Loaches 5 Tiger Barbs 3 Angel Fish 3 Bala Sharks 1 Rainbow Shark 1 Chinese Algae Eater 1 Candy Stripe Pleco (L-135)
Corals/Plants: Jungle Vals, Anubis, Java Ferns on drift wood, java moss, one onion plant, plus others.
Tank Size: 40 gallons
Advice: Cycle your water before adding fish. Once your tank is established please keep your water changes frequent and consistent. Also find yourself a good LFS (Local Fish Store) and Petco doesnt count. An LFS employee will actually know what they are talking about. Most of the time. Last but not least always do your own research...
