Intro: second post here, first was in the how-much-did-your-setup-cost thread.
Hi, I'm cwt, from Ohio, USA. :p
Why do I have an aquarium? Hmm. Mostly because I had an empty corner in my main room, begging to be used, as was an idle (and sturdy) TV stand. And because various members of my family have kept fish for many years. So why not put a tank on the stand and fill two needs at once?
The aquarium shown is a 29G planted with a few zebras and albino cherry barbs. Not shown is the 5G tank where I'm trying to raise a few extras, from eggs laid by the adult fish. Both breeds are egg scatterers, and I'm hoping the ones I sucked up are more barb than danio; the danios are so hyper. But, we'll see.
Contemplating a next tank and next fish... not going big on either count. May need an algae eater soon in the 29G. Suggestions are welcome.
