Advice: Research or redo...your choice.
Fish Kept: Semi-Aggressive Freshwater Tank: 2 x Crowntail Bettas (male; "Neo" & "Predator"); 1 x Silver-Black Angelfish (male; "Sephiroth"); 1 x Firemouth Cichlid (male; "Dante"); 1 x Green Terror Cichlid (male; "Neptune"); 1 x Rainbow/Ruby Shark (gender undetermined; "?"). As the cichlids grow, they will be moved to a larger tank. In the mean time, all is going very well for them.
Corals/Plants: All plastic/rubber, custom-made from supplies purchased at an arts & crafts store. Why pay more at a pet store?
Tank Size: 20 gallons

About Yourself: I started keeping freshwater fish in April 2008. I got into the hobby of fishkeeping mostly because the apartment in which I live does not allow dogs over 25 lbs. Seeing as how I don't like cats or mini-dogs (a.k.a., ankle-biters), fish seemed like the best alternative. Besides, they are quiet roommates. Aside from my main tank, I also have two large fishbowls which house two male veiltail bettas--one blue, one cellophane.
