Advice: Go slow, read read, read. But go as big as you can (tank size) afford. Add fish slowly, and feed fish less than you think.
Fish Kept: 8 Serpae Tetras, 2 Cory cats, 1 pleco. More to follow as tank ages...
Corals/Plants: Fake plastic for now. Will add Amazon swords, moss and some low grasses eventually.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Quote: Fair enough!
About Yourself: Getting back into the hobby hard with my new Amazon biotope tank.... I started out around 1995 and have generally had a tank most of the time since, with some breaks every now and then.

COMMENTS

the bag over the filter is to protect against sand particulate until i find a better means of keeping it out and damaging the filter's impeller. i think some type of sponge wrap might work and look better. fish avatar
