Hi from a new member

Hi all, I'm Nic. I have two goldfish (OneFish and TwoFish) that live at work. They provide a welcome calming distraction when I need a break from staring at my screens.

I inherited OneFish from a colleague who moved to another team. She was initially in a bowl that I accidentally broke while cleaning it out with hot water. I'd been wanting to get a tank for a while, so that provided the perfect excuse to buy a 150L and associated appliances.

The tank is lightly planted at the moment and nothing has ever really flourished in there except algae I'd like to get it really lush and green but am dreading the expense of a CO2 setup. I guess the advantage of having the tank at work is that I can dump my pay packet right into the tank as soon as I get paid

Now all you need is "RedFish" and "BlueFish."
