Well I had some FW
'bowls' as alittle kid, with some guppies.
I got older and was given a small hex tank, just enough for a betta.
in my late teens I picked up a 10 and 20 gallon, but that was before the Internet was actually useful to hobbyists, so I didn't do things right, and had lots of failures.
last sept. I picked up a 29gallon setup for FW
, adn did things the right way (ok, I didn't fishless cycle, but I did do daily water changes and lost no fish).
That tank quickly turned into a high light planted tank...and by January I purchased a 75gallon and transferred everything over. Between Sept and Jan, I picked up a 20gallon FW
for my wife, who gave up on it, so it's another of my planted tanks.
Now my planted tanks are stable and low maintenance...so I decided I was ready for the challenge of SW
The fish are more vivid, the reef rocks look so natural and beautiful with the coralline algae...its a living work of art, like my other tanks.
I enjoy learning, and then doing...so SW
is very interesting to me.
