Description: My New aquarium is4'x4'x2' acrylic with a center overflow. I'm running a homemade wet/dry filter underneath with a 800w heater that does an excellent job of keeping this tank stable. My lighting is a little on the high end; I'm running 4 Double Ended HQI 150 1400k Metal Halides. Right now I have two large pieces of driftwood (that still float hence the lava rock on top) and a couple varieties of warm water plants (they look sparce but like I said I just got done setting it up, they should start flourish soon).
Advice: Always do your research before starting, be patient as what works for me may not work for you. And... HAVE FUN!!
Fish Kept: Gouramis... more Gouramis... I love Gouramis. Neons, and Angels... So far
Corals/Plants: Amazon Swords, Tiger Lotus bulbs, Sag Val, baby tears, and a few others, but can't remember the names.
Tank Size: 240 gallons
Quote: Just Keep Swimming
About Yourself: My first job (and favorite job) was at a local fish store in California which helped me really understand what was available to hobbiest and best care and products... Since then I can't seem to learn enough and swear I will only keep one tank at a time... yeah right! I have 3 right now. :)
