Make Money Saying Sup?

Hello, all I am glad to be apart of this forum. It has been inspirational. The best part is seeing everyone's view of a beautiful aquarium. I'm Strictly Freshwater. It's something about it all that has me in awe. I have several tanks starting at 33 gallon. With 2 serpae tetras and 2 rainbows that I rehomed for a friend. Next is 100 gallon with 33 BSN pleco's ( they are breeding) 2 Peruvian angels and a rainbow shark. Then I have a 150 gallon "my baby" With 12 Discus,3 panda Cory cats and 3 queen arabesque along with 5 red spot gobies.. Also I have a 180 gallon with a mix of African cichlids like Red Empress,lemon Jake,Hap Flameback, Hap tomato,Socolofi,Congo black calvus, white calvus,Borleyi,White Top Afra Ahara,Red tail Shark,Golden nugget,Blue Paneque,Red Zebra,BristleNose

Nice, it can be addicting. Kinda like getting a tattoo you never get just 1 lol. What do you have in your tanks?

I do not have tats but yes it is very addicting, I'd have more tanks if I had the space for sure! New 10 has a pair of gardneri killies and 4 fry, 20 has 6 hebrosus dwarf Cory's, 4 neons, 2 cpd's, 3 gups and an albino bn, 30 has a m/f pair of apisto double reds, 4 Odessa barbs, 4 rummynose, 4 zebra danio, 4 hexazona barbs, albino bn. The 30 is all over the place with stocking I know, it was my first tank, working out great so far. My 20 had some issue that has cost me 2 neons and a cpd in the last week, working through it though.

Sounds like a nice variety of fish. I know rummy nose are very picky with water conditions just a heads up. I had neon once but they didn't last long not sure what happened to them maybe the temp I had them at 84 degree. I had them with Discus

As far as ph? Temp? Or conditions trates? They seem to be happy and healthy, I stay up on the weekly 30-40% wc. Ya From what I've learned neons are pretty tricky lil guys.. Discus huh? I've heard those are some pretty demanding fish?

Yes they are very sensitive, and require a good maintenance schedule along with lots of small feedings. I learned the hard way with them and kinda just did what ever. When ever I had time kinda thing and they didn't like that they would stop eating and become dark colored. I lost 4 of them a while back from not keeping up on water changes. I I now do weekly 30%PWC and they are doing great. They can become ill at the drop of a hat. For no apparent reason. Sometimes its very frustrating. Definitely not a beginner fish

Ouch! That's an expensive learning curve! Discus are pretty sick but I'm thinking I want to go full mbuna in my 46 when I get it going. My Lfs has an excellent selection and they're quite reasonably priced so I could go all out with having to eat ramen and tuna for a month..

Yes it was cost me about $350. That sounds like a good idea they are really cool an very active. Take your time and get the ones you want. Don't buy on impulse. I have mixed my lakes and they are doing really well together. Keep that in mind when picking the cool ones

Wowzers! Yah I will certainly put some effort into selecting a nice line up that will not result in a massacre. I've heard to many horror stories..
