About Yourself:My user name says most of it..i have a fish addiction.love my fish tanks.I'm a lineman (powerlines). This is my only hobbie i have always been obsessed with the water and its creatures.i would live to be a marine biologist.after work i spend most of my time keeping up my tank and reading books on fish and marine life.
Corals/Plants:Hornwort, Amazon swords, crypt, java fern, red ludwigia, cardinal telenthra (not having good luck with this one), aponogeton, onion, bamboo, dwarf hairgrass (also having a hard time with this one),bacopa.
Advice:Start with a good substrate, good lighting and a timer.let your tank cycle before you start adding fish.research everything before you buy it...STAY AWAY FROM JAVA MOSS. Very messy and ugly. or it was in my tank
Description:My 75 gallon.its a little cloudy just got done moving acouple plants
Advice:Don't be worried if you lose a few fish along the way. Change 20% of your water every 2 weeks and clean out your filter every month. Also you don't have ot buy the expensive, made for your filter, filter pads, get on ebay and but some decent sponge/wool pads you can cut to size.
About Yourself:Iv'e had the tank going on 2 years and just love it. Iv'e always been interested but was afraid it would just be a fad, got a great deal on craigslist, and now I'm thinking of upgradeing to a 90 or 110. I'm an electrician and am married with 3 kids, all of them share at least a little of my enthusiasm for the hobby
Advice:Go slow. Find out what works with your water conditions and go with that.
Description:I have a variety of social fish and just started planting my tank about 3 month ago when I upgraded lighting.I'm doing the homemade Co2 injectind and most of my plants have taken off. No fish fatalities(knock on wood) I'e read about all the ups and downs and ph spikes.We have really hard water which has which a few species wont grow in but over all It's been a success. Any advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Fish Kept:Mainly Rainbows but I did have the occassional beta short fin and ghost knife. Also the good old common bristlenose. Kept some Kuhli loaches and some bolivian Rams as well. A mixture of different fishes.
