About Yourself:My dad first started my interest when I was 10 and he bought me my first tank. It was freshwater and I loved breeding guppies and swordfish. I gradually switched to saltwater as new technology improved the ability to keep saltwater aniamls alive. I have well over 25 years of aquarium keeping and consider myself an experienced aquarist.
Fish Kept:My critters: 2 firefish gobies they are a mated pair. A six-line wrasse. A mean little skunkback psuedochromis. A true percula clown mated to a false percula clown. My odd couple. A bi-color angel. A yellow-tail damsel. A pixy hawkfish. A scotter blenny.
I have 1 anemone crab lives on a rock anemone. 1 urchin crab. 2 blue legged hermit crabs. 1 coral-banded shrimp and a few snails.
Corals/Plants:Corals : Frogspaw which the clowns are hosting in. Torch coral. Orange/golden acropora. Plating montipora. Neon green candy cane coral and blue center candycane coral. Spiny pectinia coral. A beautiful piece of neon green coral that appears to be encrusting. Hawaian fetherduster. Tan and green neon kenya tree. Toadstool leather and an umbrella leather. Yellow polyps and green buttom polyps. Green zooanthids. Red mushroom green mushrooms. Solid green star polyps. Neon green with white center star polyps. Yellow sponge white sponge and purple sponge all thriving and growing. 5 different rock anemones. 1 mini-max carpet anemone. Keato, featherbladed calupra, and halimeda macroalgea.
Advice:Read read read. Then find someone with experience and pick their brain. Listen to what worked for them and what didnt. Through it all you will still learn the most from trial and error but you can save a lot of time and money by listening to veteran aquarists.
About Yourself:I first began fishtanking when I was a little kid with a mere 5 gallon tank full of goldfish I won at a carnival. Ever since I've just always loved watching fish and owning fish. I love designing the landscape for the fish to explore. I just recently converted my 25 into a 55 Gallon tank, and only a few days ago made it into a black water environment. My favorite fish would have to be my black ghost knife which I have watched grow from a few inches to almost 9 now. I take great pride in my tank.
Fish Kept:Black Ghost Knife
Red Finned Shark
Corals/Plants:All fake, live plants cannot live in blackwater.
