Description: My primary tank is a well established 55 gallon. I run two hang on back filters... I forget the brands, but they are a large one meant for the job and an extra little ten gallon one that I had laying around. I have them stuffed full of filter floss and planted with pothos. I use only biological filtration.I have two smaller heaters in there to keep the temp more even throughout the space, and an air stone to help keep the things fresh and funky.With plants do fish I find variety to be the spice of life, though you do have to keep you eye out for how each new addition effects the others... But that's the whole point of the game right?
Advice: Fish die. It's sad. They live longer the better you get at not messing up the atmosphere they breathe. Not all water is created equal.Real plants are far superior to fake ones. Nutrient rich substrate is worth the extra money... And so is that light bar with the timer.Do your research Before you buy new responsibilities.
Fish Kept: Panda Cory Cat, Albino Aeneus Cory Cat, Emerald Green Cory Cat, Dwarf Cory Cat, Blue Gourami, Red Wag Platy, Mickey Mouse Platys, Neon Tetra, Long Fin White Cloud, Red Cobra Delta Guppy, Guppy, Common Pleco
Corals/Plants: .... A ton?
Tank Size: 55 gallons
About Yourself: I am a Mom of two young men... About a year and a half ago one won a fish at the fair. He lived for about two weeks, but after George died I was already invested and interested. The fish very quickly became an obsession for about six months. I couldn't hold a conversation without expounding upon the various concepts involved. Then one day I just stopped talking about it. I realized nobody knew what I was talking about. The depth of my obsession had found me so deep in the science of the concept that I was techno babbling at my friends and family. My fervor has calmed down, but my love has become a long burning ember.
