Hello from Tx

I am a 36 year old father of 7 daughters. Yes, I live with 8 girls in my house. I needed something that was just for me. In undergrad I had a 45 gallon tank with a tiger Oscar. The entire dorm enjoyed coming to watch him eat. I recently purchased a used 120 gallon (I thought it was 150) and set it up. After about 6 weeks the tank had cycled and was ready for fish. This tank is just kinda fun for me. No one else touches it. I enjoy sitting and watching my fish swim.

I'm new to this. How can I post pics? I'm on the app not computer, if that matters. . .

I figured it out and will add pics tomorrow...

The BGN I discounted from my 150 gal due to full size. I went for yo yo loaches as a bit smaller so I could have 4.

Hello from Tx

I would say you will be. The Bala sharks I would also say would get too large and active.

Edit - the website below is also handy for stocking.
