Hi everyone, I'm Eli :)

Hi everyone, just thought I'd take a minute to introduce myself - my name is Eli and I'm from Wales! I'm not a complete novice but I'm pretty new to all of this.

My first fish was around 2 years ago and was a tiny little goldfish which the kids came home with after a trip to the fair, followed by a panic trip to our local pet shop to buy a tank for the poor thing. After 2 years 'Raymond' is now around 6 inches long and has moved to my mothers large outdoor pond where he will hopefully be much happier!

Raymond's old 25 litre tank now homes 3 harlequin rasboras - didn't want to add too much because in the near future I'm hoping to get some shrimp for it too!

I also recently got a 120 litre tank too which I'm currently stocking, but have a few questions which is the main reason I joined this forum

In the future I would really love to have a large marine tank, but I guess it's a good idea to get a good understanding of the basics before I get into that!

Anyway, thank you so much for reading my little introduction and I look forward to getting to know you all

The only camera I have is on my phone which is completely out of battery at the minute, but I'll definitely take a few pictures tomorrow!

I don't really like the small one as much to be honest, I think the wood is a bit too big for the space, so now I'm not really sure what else I have room for to stop it looking so bleak :/ obviously any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
