Read about the fish you want to keep and what they need to thrive....not just survive.
I keep a very aggressive fish with no room for error. I have put these fish in very careful and pulled out some for bad behavoir. Convect, (2) Jack Dempsy, up-side down cattfish, african cichlid.
I picked out my rock from a lava flow from Mt Mazama. I enjoy the hike and fresh air.
Life is to short to do nothing!!
Well it started with gold fish for my daughter 15 yrs ago. Then I got bored with them and wanted a fish that would eat them. I got a convict for 5 bucks. This fish had a cool personality. I read about them and got africans to go with him. Then I had to get a bigger tank. My hunger for learning and watching was intense. I went from a 10 gallon to a 29, then 55. Then I started saltwater tanks. At this time my pet stores had little or no help. So I learned from trial and error. At one time I had 7 tanks and started my own business cleaning tanks. Now It has been 15 yrs I have cut back to 3 tanks. Looking into nano reef tank for the bedroom.
