More Info

Country: Canada
Description: I have several tanks.
Advice: ALWAYS cycle a tank before putting fish into it. This is especially true of many brackish species who need the bacteria to be healthy. Know your fish as well when you buy. Research, research, and then research. Forums are great places to look up info on your species of choice. Also, be wary when purchasing brackish species. Many of them are kept in fresh water due to the inconsistancy of retailer info. Most "brackish" species, or those labelled as such, do much better in a proper brackish environment. A great example are figure 8 puffers, who are much healthier and happier (and less stressed) in brackish waters, as that is their natural habitat.
Fish Kept: - 3 juvinile mono argentus - 1 adolescent mono sebae
Corals/Plants: No live plants. This environment was aquascaped to mimick delta to open ocean environments. Lots of open space for the monos to swim and mature. No preditors. Argonite sand substrate, lava and coral rock, and seashells. Fake coral.
Tank Size: 38 gallons
Quote: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
About Yourself: Loved my freshwater tank as a child, but wanted to get into something more serious and different now as an adult, many years later. I discovered that very few brackish tanks make up the percentage of household aquariums, and wanted to give myself a challenge. I found that with the right research, these unique aquaria are very inexpensive and very interesting to say the least.
