Photo Caption: This is my first "real" aquarium. It has taken me hard work over the past couple of months to get this far...we've battled HIGH ammonia, ick, a fungal infection and lost a dozen fish along the way due to inexperience. I am happy to report that it is now almost finished cycling for the second time (I tore it completely down a few weeks ago) and look forward to adding more plants and fish!
