Quote: IF IT WAS THAT EASY, EVERYBODY WOULD BE DOING IT !!!
About Yourself: Been keeping fish for over 15 years. This is my first heavily planted tank. So far so good.
Fish Kept: 2 clown loaches, 1 river loach, 5 various cory's, 2 Oto Cat fish, 2 chinese algea eaters. 2 SAE, 3 white clouds, 3 giant danios, 4 zebra danio, 1 leopard danio, 3 rumy nose tetra. 6 neon tetras, 5 random tetras,2 serpae tetras, 2 flower shrimp, 5 ghost shrimp, 5 japonica shrimp,10 cherry shrimp, 41 fish, 22 shrimp
Corals/Plants: I dont know the names of all of them. Anubias nana, Rotalla, Crypts, Java moss, Java fern, Amazon swords, moneywort, Vallisneeria, sagiteria, floating plants,Dwarf hair grass, Red tiger lotus, Hygrophila, Bacopa, Drift wood I found at a river. Its actually all one piece.
Tank Size: 20 gallons
Advice: If you want 41 fish in a 20g tank, be prepared to work on it lots. If 1 fish dies dont panic. Fish die. It happens. If lots die you have a problem. Research your fish before you buy them. You need bottom feeders and algea eaters to help keep it clean. Most fish like to be kept in groups. Feed them a variety of foods. RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH. 25% water change once a week. You dont need to add tons chemicals. Plant food, amonia remover and cycle are all you need. Prune your plants it helps them grow.

About Yourself: When I was just a kid my mom and dad opened an aquarium shop and I learned so much about fresh and salt water care and have always enjoyed aquariums. I am in the ac/heating field and in the summer when I am so busy it is hard to devote as much time as I would like to working with my tank but it seems like I always find time someway or another.
Fish Kept: This is a community tank which has Silver Dollars. Platys, 23 Neons, 2 Plecos, 2 Cory Cats, 2 Dalmation Mollys and 2 Black Mollys and several Platy and Molly fry.
Corals/Plants: Life like artificial plants with driftwood, Texas holy rock, river rocks and petrified wood rock to make a very natural environment.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Advice: Just do a lot of reading and ask a lot of questions and you'll develop your own ideas and what works best for you. It is very rewarding and very enjoyable.
