Hi my name's Alex...Cougha's a nickname. I'm 15 and live on the Sunny Coast, QLD, Australia.
I have looked after a 6ft SW aquarium (at school) for 3 yrs now. We have a shark (Brown banded bamboo), bubble anemone, indo pacific clown, moon wrasse, 2 blennies, 1 goby and a few other fishies.
Last year I decided to start up my own tank at home so I started basic with a 38L Aquaone tank which now houses 2 black percula clowns and 1 royal grammar.
I am now looking at setting up a tank with a lionfish (second hand from an aquarium shop.)
I joined to learn more about aquariums etc and to have a base to fall back on if I encounter any dramas or have any questions.
