About Yourself:Ceiling fixer/ex-mechanic. Into most motorsports, I race jet skis, ride moto-x, drive serious 4x4, love nature, camping, water & outdoors. It was a desire to bring aquatic nature indoors coupled with a friend's influence that got me into aquariums in 1998.
Fish Kept:All types of fresh water fish.
Corals/Plants:Um........yep, there's plants in there. Sorry, I'm not good with plant names.
Advice:Cycle the tank for 6 weeks then test H2O before gradually introducing fish over a period of time. Patience now will save you time & effort later. Research stuff & let your fish & plants tell you when there's a problem. Feed fish 3 times a day if you want but never overfeed them in1 sitting.
Description:4'x18"x18" Planted cichlid/tropical community. Approx 18mths old
Advice:Study up first before you start into your aquarium. It takes time to do it right. But the rewards are well worth the time spent.
Description:My first attempt at several things...A custom made background, live plants, and African cichlids (demasoni,yellow labs, red zebras, and cobalt blues)...Not a single plant lost or even a demasoni lost. Granted I do need a better camera.
Fish Kept:pearl, dwarf and honey gouramis,
blushing koi angels,
gold chinese algae eaters,
rummy nosed tetras,
