More Info

Country: Great Britain
Description: Blackwater biotope 18x12x18" Super fish aquaflow 100 filter 6 sterbai corydoras

Corals/Plants: Java fern, anubias barteri
Tank Size: 15 gallons
About Yourself: I got into the hobby by accident. I was stupid enough to win a goldfish in a fair prize, with no experience of fish keeping. Even though this goldfish passed away, I continued to research how to care for fish as I wanted to know how I could keep these amazing animals alive. My first tank (15 gallons) wasn't very good. It had all your run of the mill fish (guppies, tetras etc). However one day I came across a goby - who I found out to be a Lentipes multiradiatus - and I became addicted to them. I now have a hillstream biotope with all manner of gobies. I also have a 15 gallon blackwater biotope as I found out I also love Corie's! It is hard to say if I prefer gobies or Corie's. They're both great. Finally I have a 5 gallon lightly planted tank for the Lentipes I mentioned earlier. It is very special to me as it was the 'gateway' to discovering a whole manner of awesome fish.
