Don't buy fish just because they're pretty. Make sure you know their needs and requirements. Just because your fish is alive doesn't mean it's happy.
Livebearers, tetras, angels, gouramis, African cichlids, cherry & golden barbs, clown loaches, plecos, & more.
Just starting on plants. Currently keeping wisteria, java moss, dwarf sag, amazon swords, cabomba, and bacopa.

Long time fish keeper, 17 years in the hobby. Only just starting to expand my fish horizons.
