Description: MY VERY VERY VERY FIRST TANK
THEMED AFTER LORD OF THE RINGS
LEFT SIDE IS "THE SHIRE" FOR HOBBITS
AND THE RIGHT SIDE IS "RIVENDALE" FOR ALL ELVEN ROYALTY
2 20 gallon filters (1 was not enough)
Advice: READ READ READ BEFORE STARTING THEN TEST TEST TEST READ READ READ ADD FISH AND REPEAT PROCESS
I used to work at PetSmart and it amzed me how little information people had when starting up an aquarium. They would buy the fish and tank on the same day as I would throw my self in front of the exit trying to convince them about water cycling. I was lucky enough to have a father who was a microbiologist who specialized in water reclamation his whole life so I had a good grasp on the process but was terrified I couldn't do it. The tank sat in the box for 3 months before I got the courage to "Geter Done"
Fish Kept: 7 very happy dwarf puffers
1 pleco for cleanup
3 large blue apple snails
several ghost shrimp for both cleanup and grazing on for the puffers
handfulls of pond snails as snacks for keeping the puffers teeth trimmed
Corals/Plants: sorry don't know the names my mother wasn't a hortaculturalist so my strengths leaned towards my dads line.
