More Info

State: New York
Country: United States
Description: 55 gallon kit, comes with lighting, hood, and whisper 60, plus two additional whisper 30's, and an extra 100 watt heater. 10 lbs argonite mixed with black gravel and small brown river stones. small net breeder at upper right cause accidentally got fry in bag with pleco from live aquaria and want to give it a chance (though starting to look more and more like a tetra, which has no chance with my cichlids). Sorry I can't giv e more advice, new to hobby.... I can say though, WATER CHANGES - WEEKLY!!!
Advice: DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!! Got 29 gallon for husband as a present a few months ago, and it wound up being my obsession and he never touches it. :)
Fish Kept: 1 6" fuellborni OB, 3 Frontosa (1 is like 8" and the other two are like 3"), 2 electric blues, 2 blood parrots, 1 acei, 1 kenyi, 1 yellow peacock, 2 common plecos, 1 albino sailfin pleco, 1 6" blue night lobster, and a few other randon malawaian cichlids.....
Corals/Plants: all artificial plants for now.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
About Yourself: My husband and I have just gotten into keeping fish. I was against it at first and now the tables have turned. After getting the tank as a present, he has decided he doesn't really want to care for it. I have taken over and LOVE it. I'm anxious to learn more and to upgrade to HUGE tank after we move cause 55 gallions wont hold my three frontosa for long! :) Our 3 year old daughter loves looking at it and watching me feed the little guys. She's so obsessed I swear she'll become a marine biologist when she grows up. :)
