Description: I currently have an 8 gallon biocube that is setup with the 18 watt 10K and Actinic lights with the normal factory filtration system built in. I also have a 30L that is equipped with a Magnum filtration system and two light strips containing a Power Glo and one Marine Glo bulb. I also have a 125 set up with a Rena XP3 and strip lighting containing white lights as well as Actinic lighting.
Advice: Stick with it, read books and magazine articles, as well as ask many questions at any of the local pet shops and stores. You can always learn a lot from experienced people in he business.
Fish Kept: There are no fish in the biocube. In the 30L I have a good mix of Lake Malawi cichlids (young ones). In the 125 I have a good mix of Tanganyikan cichlids.
Corals/Plants: In the 8g biocube I have only corals. From leathers to mushrooms to frogspawns and hammer corals, as well as zoos, etc. Some are over 3 years old. They were transferred over from a 2.5g a couple years back.
Tank Size: 125 gallons

About Yourself: I am currently a parole officer for the State of Texas. I have been in the correctional system for about 2 years. Before that I worked as an Account Manager for Lone Star Pet Supply out of Schertz TX. As I achieved my BA in Criminal Justice I worked for Polly's Pet Shop in San Antonio and New Braunfels (one of the largest independently owned shops in Texas). I started working there at the age of 16 and part time as recent as 1 year ago. I have over 10 years experience in the pet industry on both sides (retail and distribution). That is definitely where I learned the bulk of the knowledge about all this.


Really nice set up,looks great:) fish avatar
