Description: I have a non planted artificial gravel 55 gallon tank, with rocks and a large artificial piece of drift wood. I use 2 overhead light fixture that I got from my other 30 gallon tanks both equipped with plant growing bulbs, I run 2 top fin 50-75 gallon heaters set at 80 degrees F, as well as a 75 gallon bio filter which brand I do not know because the name came off. My light fixtures are top fin as well.
Advice: Just start small, don't overwhelm youreself with too much work in one tank, my first tank was a 20 gallon guppy tank with a baby green sunfish that I caught and it was super easy care, and here I am today still a fish keeper
Fish Kept: Tiger Oscar, Firemouth Cichlid, Sailfin Pleco (L-83), Sailfin Pleco (L-83), Convict Cichlid
Corals/Plants: None
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Quote: What's the point in living if you can't be purple
About Yourself: Just got out of highschool and have had tanks for only about 4 or 5 years and have fallen in love, I work at a camp and cook and clean and anything the guests need me to do
