State: Wisconsin
Country: United States
Description: It is a 36x22x18 glass tank.I have a 4 lamp, t5 fixture.I'm running a 530 gph canistar filter. I've been experimenting with a variety of live plants, everything but the psalm tree is live.The dwarf gouramis are by far the best at keeping the hair and other algae at bay. I have had cherry red shrimp in it for about 3 month and hope they will start breeding
Advice: Go slow. Find out what works with your water conditions and go with that.
Fish Kept: Yoyo Loach, Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami, Borellis Dwarf Cichlid, Otocinclus Catfish, Sterba's Cory, Black Skirt Tetra, Bristle-nose Catfish
Corals/Plants: got some random samplings on craiglist and I'm not 100 percent shure on all of them
Tank Size: 58 gallons
About Yourself: Iv'e had the tank going on 2 years and just love it. Iv'e always been interested but was afraid it would just be a fad, got a great deal on craigslist, and now I'm thinking of upgradeing to a 90 or 110. I'm an electrician and am married with 3 kids, all of them share at least a little of my enthusiasm for the hobby
