About Yourself: Got in to fishkeeping from a very young age; ended up having 20+ tanks in a small council flat! Growing up, jobs, relationships then meant it took a backseat. Restarted in my late 40's with community tank, then Malawi tank. My son has this one now and he is starting a Sumatra tank.My tank that I have submitted, was bought off an auction site. I built the stand myself as well as the sump, which was converted from an old acrylic shop display. it contains amongst other things, 15kgs of alfagrog. My biggest challenge in fishkeeping is resisting the urge to fiddle! Always tweaking this and adjusting that.
