I got into fishkeeping last summer, and got my first tank up and running around October. It's a temperate, 15g (UK gallons, though I suspect everyone around these parts uses US gallons!), lightly planted and home to my 3 variatus platies~
Much as I love them, I've recently been getting the itch to get more fish. Sadly, I live in a very small flat, so don't really
have space for a second tank (and my partner is trying to stop me from developing MTS, so he'd probably say no to that idea :P), but I'm going to look into getting a shoal of WCMM to live with my boys. Not quite sure on whether that works with stocking levels yet though!
