About Yourself: Never imagined I would have a fish tank, but after my wife and son got a 5 gallon and the fish died. I did some research to see what was wrong and really enjoyed learning about the hobby and correctly setting up the tank, especially adding live plants. Now I have 2, 90+ gallon tanks.
Fish Kept: Veil tail swords, Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami, Peppered Cory Cat, Bronze Cory
Corals/Plants: Too many to list. Probably have 15 different species of plants at least.
Tank Size: 120 gallons
Advice: Live plants! Always live plants! Also find a local fish store and ask for their advice. The prices may be higher than a big box store but the information and expertise is well worth it!!
