Description: tank is 48"x12"x19", I am running a 70 gallon aquaclear 3 stage filter, 7" airstone with pump, standard heater. Pretty basic setup but the tank is ridiculously clean.
Advice: Figure out what you want before you set everything up and buy the fish. Don't be afraid to try different combinations of fish. As you can see, I have tropical community, agressive tropical, and cichilids, and they all live happily together :-).
Fish Kept: 1 turqoise severum, 1 marbled angelfish, 1 blood parrot, 1 ghost knife, 1 raphael catfish, 1 male dalmation molly, 2 female black molly, 3 strawberry tetra's, 1 blue mystery snail, 1 zebra danio
Corals/Plants: Dead coral, fake wood, pink quartz, fake plants
(not that I don't like real plants, just don't want the up keep and extra equipment. I would rather focus on my fish.)
About Yourself: I have only been into this for about 1 year now and I love it. It is so realxing to sit back and watch your fish swim around and play. This is one of the best hobbies I have ever gotten into.
