Photo Caption:This guy is my Loach. I was weary of him at first because he ate our Glo-Fish the first two nights I had the 43, but he is a beautiful fish when he does come out. While the other fish are eating on flakes and pellets he is fine dining it on Shrimp Cocktail.
Description: I had a 10 Gallon tank and I upgraded just recently to this BEAUTIFUL 43 GL Hexagon tank.I don't know name brands but I have a heater, bubbler, filter and a Coralife 96wt 50/50 light.
Advice: Having a larger tank has helped me learn what I needed for the fish and why they needed it. I had no clue what a bubbler was because a 10 gallon doesn't require it. It is definitely true for the beginner; Start large and keep going. A larger tank is easier to maintain and a lot more rewarding to look at. I don't watch TV anymore, I am to busy watching the tank!
Fish Kept: (1) Fantail Goldfish, (1) Sweetheart Parrotfish, (3) Pictus Catfish, (3) White Skirt Tetra, (1) Loach
I had a algae eater in my 10 gallon but there wasn't enough algae for him to eat. I also had two glo-fish which were very small and the first two night I had the 43 GL tank the Loach at them. I am now feeding the Loach cocktail shrimp.
Corals/Plants: I have 1 Green/Variegated Brazilian Sword and it is beautiful in the tank and helps with the Algae Bloom.
Quote: Fish-Friendly Shark Pledge: I am a nice shark. Not a mindless eatin' machine. If I want to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends. Not food!!!
About Yourself: I have always loved aquariums. When I was younger my mother had 4 tanks and I just would spend a lot of time just watching the fish swim around. I am just learning new things but I want to become an expert at it and eventually move up to Saltwater. I know it takes a lot of responsibility, hard work and time. I am just waiting for my time.
