Description: I first would like to thank the RMFT community for giving me ideas with starting this beautiful hobby. My tank decor was influenced by many of you here, so I always give credit where it's due.

My water stays crystal clear and chemically balanced. My driftwood does lower the pH, so I have to pH Up on with water changes. I really don't like using chemicals more than I have to.
My tank is relatively young, and I learned from my mistakes. Until my tank was properly cycled, I did unfortunately lose a couple platys and tetras. Now, I am correctly cycled, and everyone inside is happy.
Fish Kept: 3 Bolivian Rams,
3 Apistogramma Cacatuoides,
5 Asstd Platys,
4 Peppered Corys,
1 Cardinal Tetra,
2 Bamboo shrimp,
15 Ghost shrimp,
Believe it or not, everyone gets along 110%. I thought I would lose a few ghost shrimp, but they have not been touched.,
I'm at maximum capacity, so I do 25% water changes/vacuuming every 1.5 weeks.,
Feed: Flake and NLS Cichlid Formula, and freeze-dried brine shrimp every few days.
Corals/Plants: All plastic and silk. A combination of Sea Garden, Tetra Water Wonders, and Penn Plax plants.<br>
I use Malaysian driftwood, which really accentuates the tank.
