Learning more every day...

Hello!

I had an aquarium from age 6-18 and then took a hiatus during college and my first few career years. I bought a 29 gallon set-up from Craigslist last year and continue to learn more about being a good aquarist every day. I have a fairly well-planted, natural-looking tank with a Coralife lamp. Six harlequin rasboras, five ottos, three hatchetfish, three roseline sharks, two black ruby barbs, two cory sterbais, 5 amano shrimp, 3 orange bee shrimp, 2 red cherry shrimp, and one zebra nerite snail. I have had the same stock for about six months and everyone is happy and healthy. The tank seems to be at a perfect balance of all levels, algae, etc. I'm hoping to continue to learn how to take even better care of my fish and make my plants really take off.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

How do I post pics? When I click the Insert Image button it asks me for a URL. Do I need to upload the pick to flickr or something first?
