I've been reading posts on Aquarium Advice and other fish keeper forums for a few months now, and I have to say that overall, I like this community the best.
I'm still new to the hobby. I got into keeping fish (or should that be keeping water
) through my 9yo daughter. I 'officially' adopted her Glofish Danio (in a 10g) when it was obvious she had no interest in them anymore. In those 4 months, I've changed everything about the tank except the substrate (okay... i added laterite) and got hooked pretty quickly. Now the tank is moderately planted with a 6" tall Anubis Nana, 3 Amazon Swords (all also about 6" tall), an El Nino Fern, several Wisteria, and a mass of Java Moss that I threaded through netting to make a tall, arced moss wall.
The wall is for the RCS to hide in and eat from - I have about 20 of them. They live with 5 Glofish Danio... and I actually think they are eating the shrimp.
I have two other small tanks- they are 3gallon crescents and each houses a Betta. Both are moderately planted with gentle filters. (I'm tired today and it seems like an awful lot of energy to detail them)
My filter media cartidges are modified - I've removed the carbon and replaced it with Aqueon Biomax, and I've added polishing pads to the filters as well.
I'm starting to plan my next tank and I'm going saltwater - it's exciting! This project will be a long time in the making, though, and I'll be posting threads asking for opinions on set up. I know that I want a pair of Clownfish, some Pajama Cardinals and possibly a Tang, but I feel like that's would make it too Nemo. It will need to be a 50g I'm guessing, hence the long-term plan. (input appreciated!)
Anyways, those are my tanks and my plans, and I look forward to getting to know you on the forum. I'll also be looking to buy supplies and fish, and I know some of you out there sell, so make sure you list your stuff!
