About Yourself: I like to snowboard and be a dad to my 13 month old daughter. Obviously I like my fishtanks as well...
Fish Kept: I keep rainbows mostly, I have a 90 gallon with 45 neons and some cories
Corals/Plants: Swords, java moss, crypts, val, sag.
Tank Size: 125 gallons
Advice: GO SLOW. Take your time to get a feel for your tank. Don't go nuts and load it, you'll shock the system. I keep tons of plants in my tanks, they filter, they shelter and they look good. You can't beat live tanks.
Description: This is a three year old pic of my tank. I figured I'd throw it up here and see what you all think.... It's different now but... The angels used to breed all the time...

Quote: "respect my authoritae!" South Park
About Yourself: My father is a geology professor who helped origonate the idea of plate techtonics, my stepmother is a marine biologist who introduced me to freshwater fishtanks when she was studying crayfish behavior(she was far from the sea as we moved to Ithaca NY when I was ten). I used to raise fish I caught in the local streams and ponds. I buried flat rocks in the front corners of my tank and watched as the crayfish created their burrows, and then I was able to watch them as I had set it up so I would be able to see into their homes. I would return fish and crayfish to the stream when I went away for trips and when they got too big. I'm a respiratory therapist, I have an eight year old son, and we're both into fishtanks and N-scale trains.
Fish Kept: 14 inch arawana, 3 8-10 inch Florida spotted gars, 2 eight inch hydro gars, 2 7 inch weather loaches, 1 6 inch talapia.
Corals/Plants: Large, medium, and small anubias, java fern, java moss, Amazon sword, and a few kinds of other medium to small nice plants.
Tank Size: 100 gallons
Advice: Try live plants and make sure you have adequate lighting, and over-do the biological filtration. You will need to clean less often and you'll have a more stable ecosystem.

About Yourself: environmental biologist by trade. Watch my tank instead of television, more relaxing

Corals/Plants: lots of plants will list species at later time
Tank Size: 95 gallons
Advice: put yourself in the skin of your fish. Give them places to hide for privacy and they will be healthier. Feed them the best food there is and vary the diet. I also skip a day or so between feedings for periods of time especially once the tank has aged a little and the fish are in good shape. It works for me.

Advice: To avoid going backwards and buying what you don't need PLAN ahead. In the beginning all you need is a tank, correct substrate and depth depending on plants chosen, filter, ph, ammonia, nirite, and nitrate test kits, a heater, thermometer, and not much else til later. Start by just running your tank for a week or two adding a small bit of fish food or just use Cycle, then check ammonia and nitrite, if levels are good start planting if not add a bit of cycle and wait another week or until ammonia and nitrite fall to safe levels, at which time you buy your lighting, if your planting it wont hurt to go a few weeks without adding C02 and longer for ferts letting your plants take root and establish. Check ammonia/nirite again. THEN slowly add your fish which saves more money starting to get my idea?? Then use all your saved money to buy bulbs food driftwood. Take small watchful steps and you will avoid the problems I went through by not doing any of the above things I typed lol!
