Quote: Focus on your potential
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.
Tank Size: 65 gallons
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.
