Hello! Just a bit about myself. I've had fish in my life... for my whole life... but I'm always learning and looking for kind advice and inspiration. My first post is looking for 1 possible addition to my established 20long tank - not 100% sure I want to add, but thinking I want a few cories to add some life to the tank... and what - oh what - I should stock in my new-to-me 90 gallon set up that someone gave to me w/ 2 huge marineland double biowheel filters, heaters and nice (unknown brand tho) LED light (If I post a picture will someone be able to tell WHAT IT IS?!?!
I - personally - have 2 aquariums. 1 is fully set up - been running for over 2 years - it's a 20long with a "rescued from Wal-Mart" green and green crowntail betta
, 8 green neon tetras, 2 Japanese algae eaters and a single farlowella. Planted with Dwarf red lotus, val, melon swords, java fern, java moss, apontogen, dwarf crip and Anubis nana - OH and my newest plant addition is red root floaters.
MY other tank is a 90 gallon that I am JUST this week starting the fishless cycle on - half gravel half sand, bog log and rocks... planning on planting and stocking - my first post is looking for suggestions on what to put in there early next year once my tank is cycled and stable.
My husband - on the other hand - has a few more tanks than me - and MANY more years of experience (but sometimes I get tired of asking him because he gets all smug and snooty with me when I ask his opinion on something - and he likes the bigger predators while I prefer the smaller community fish) from working in fish wholesale operations, pet stores (local and national chains) and just personal experience.
His tanks are 20high breeders with guppies and neocardinia shrimp that he's working on breeding/selling in the future - a 55gallon African shell dweller tank and a 39gallon temporarily set up with a frontosa that is the sole survivor of an aquarium mishap. We will eventually set up our remaining billion tanks BUT for now this is it.
OH! And our oldest child has his own 20gallon tank with guppies, cherry barbs, white clouds and a single Japanese algae eater.
