State: Texas
Country: United States
Description: 48X20x18 2nd hand tank, 2nd hand flourescent light, XP2 Filter, Marine Heater,
Advice: Don't skimp on water, gravel or filter changes. Use live bacteria for starting your tank. Wash your hands prior to putting into tank. XP2 filter has been so easy to use and clean I will use same brand for any future tanks. Really observe the fish and other tank mates for signs of diseases before purchasing and putting into your tank. I gave up on discount fish stores and buy only from better stores now. It saves me money in the long run to pay a little more up front for fish from a reliable source.
Fish Kept: Neons, Guppies, Harlequin Rasboras, Black Molly, Glass Fish, Golden Dream Panchax Killifish, Feather Fin Catfish, Common Pleco, Powder Blue Gourami, Diamond Tetra, Bala Sharks, Peacock Gobi, Bumblebee Gobi, Electric Yellow Cichlid, Melanochromis Auratus, Ghost Shrimp. Everyone gets along even the sole surviving molly fry has carved out her niche in this little world.
Corals/Plants: I have 7 different species of plants. I am not certain of the names but believe I have 3 of them figured out, Bronze Wendtii, Hornwort, Oriental Sword. IF you happen to recognize any of them let me know. I do not use any type of CO2 and I don't have any desire to spend money in that arena. I would rather spend money on other stuff for my fish. The only thing I am planning to invest in for my plants is a plant spectrum flourescent lightbulb.
Tank Size: 75 gallons
Quote: What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matter compared to what lies within us.
About Yourself: I love keeping fish. I am saving up for another tank. I like the 75 gallon size. It seems very easy for me to maintain. I want to find a balance between what makes my fish happy and yet still looks really nice from the outside.
