More Info

Country: Ireland
Description: I own a Orca RA-05 aquarium with 3 stage filtration system sponges-mechanical, bio balls and ceramic rings-biological and carbon-chemical filtration. Its 17gallons and has 2 flourecent tubes for lighting which run at 24w. It contains a pump which pumps 1100L/h specs are 455-490-495mm. I also have included an interpet air pump AV1 which creates the bubble effect.
Advice: Take your time to plan out what type of tank you want and the size. The fish should be evenly matched so one fish doesnt get all the food, get a good filtration pump so it minimizes cleaning also get an oxegen pump and lighting, but most of all have fun and enjoy being a fish keeper.
Fish Kept: My fish are fairly simple to mind but I like them I have a variety of 6 goldfish, 3 white cloud moutain minnow, 2 plecostomuses, 1octomus (algae crew) and 3 weather loach.
Corals/Plants: I have plants with some fake plants and river rocks at the bottom. I recently added bogwood in the centre for natural effect and the fish are thriveing in it .
Tank Size: 17 gallons
Quote: Only when you truly love the fish, will the fish love you back!
About Yourself: I used to live in California in the United States but I had to move to Galway in Ireland because of family business. I was forced to sell my 15 gallon fish tank with my beloved goldfish it was very sad as they were 10 years old. I bought a new 17 gallon tank here in Ireland with new goldfish and a algae eaters eater and im flying it!!!!!!! ITS A GREAT HOBBY!!!!!!!!
