Description: My tank is a small, 11 litre water home 3, plastic fishtank. I'm not allowed a bigger tank or a tropical tank as 'It puts the electric bills up.' Being 17 and living at home begging for a bigger tank just doesn't work so i gave up and tryed to make the most of my 11 litre Waterhome 3. I'v put a Fluval 1 in as the trickle system filter was smelling bad and i hated it - i always stick by my Fluval's! Normal 15W light that came with tank and a small air pump pumping out a line of bubbles along the back of the tank. Plastic plants, loads of plain gravel, small cobbles and an ornamental driftwood makes my tank look lovely for a small, rather restricted basic goldfish tank.
Advice: I'm just starting out and love fish so the only advice I can dish out it PATIENCE REALLY IS A VIRTUE! Nitrite and ammonia really do have to be non existant for a healthy tank! Pump in that Nutrafin Cycle and wait!

About Yourself: I work in a petshop and the more I learnt about fish, the more i wanted them! When i finally wormed my way into the crappy little 11 litre plasic tank that i have now, i tryed my hardest to make it as beautiful as all of yours.
