Photo Caption:This is my favirote fish. Sweetheart Parrotfish. She is great and very playful. She isn't shy at all.
She will come up to the top of the tank when you put your hand and nip at your finger.
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.
