Quote: Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. Sir Albert Einstein.
About Yourself: I started off by Buying a biorb 60, and I found it to be inadequate to keep even a few small tropical fish inefficient and a pain to clean. The filter and everything else was poor. I went to a large aquarium store and dove into buying a 260litre tank by Fluval. Doing extensive research on the web and practical experimentation I am now the proud keeper of 35+ various barb fish in a planted tank..and very happy with it. Learning as I go on.
