Hello im new

Hello my name is James I have a serious passion for aquatic biology and aquascaping. I was born with high functioning autism or aspergers although I am very high functioning. I have been intrigued with biology and systems at many levels. both large scale as in the ecosystem of the earth as a whole as well as small systems such as molecules since I was four. I have been above average in those areas since that age and always will have this undying passion. So I decided I will go to college and get a bachelors, masters, and phd in aquatic biology and work towards it's conservation.
I have had aquariums in my family since I was born. I now build my own with what money I can save. I currently have four freshwater aquariums in my little apartment. I can't wait to buy a house and build my masterpieces. Currently I have a 36 gallon bow front open top with live plants, two young African peacocks, and african drift wood. I Also have a brand new 29 gallon marineland led kit with fake plants, drift wood, and a nice piece of rock in it. The 29 gallon kit houses my blue rams and convict cichlids. The tank is currently cycling and is almost done. Then I have a 10 gallon neon tetra tank with live plants and African drift wood. Last is my 2.5 gallon Betta aquarium that I house my beautiful female Betta in and her name is Baby the second. I have owned many Betta fish and often train them to come to the front of the aquarium when I tap the glass or call their name.
Thanks everyone and happy fish tanking. If you have any comments or questions please ask. I'll be happy to chat and share my experience with you nothing makes me happier than my passions.
Sincerely, James

Hi, welcome
I've just started a freshwater tank a few weeks ago so i'm still asking a lot of questions! Somedays I sound more like a worried parent rather than an aquarium owner ....

Why I can't get the ammonia level less than 0.25 even with daily and twice daily pwc!
