My name is Ryan. I am new to this site, but not so new to fish and aquariums, although it has been a couple of years since my last aquarium. I will be picking up a 55gal and stand for $150 tomorrow. I am wanting to build up a cichlid tank and caught my eye on blood red parrot fish. So I am wanting to build a setup around 1 or maybe 2 of those. Any suggestions for compatible mates is welcome! I am also thinking of a fluval 305 or 405, depending on available funding
My previous tank was a 29 gal
which hasn't been filled for several years. Had a school of tiger barbs and other community fish. I've always used my snake gravel vacuum for cleaning and water changes, but we just moved into a new home and it came with a fancy faucet which is not compatible to the coupler. You guys have any tips or tricks for cleaning your tanks without the luxury of a faucet/sink?
Any suggestions/comments are always welcome!
