  1. Hello, my name is Tim Nelson and I'm from just outside Scranton, Pennsylvania. I've been in and out of the fish hobby over the last 20 years but in the last two have become much more serious. I breed guppies and bristlenose plecos and my son and I recently started a youtube channel on fish keeping. Looking forward to learning from others and to help others learn and being able to build relationships with others who have a common interest.
  2. Hello! My name is Austin and I am a fairly new to the nerm squad. My brother had a 10-gal that he was no longer using so I asked him for it and set up my first tank in January 2021. Today, I have 4 tanks currently set up, 1 20-gal, 2 10-gal, and one 5-gal. In the 20-gal (pictured), I currently have 8 Glofish Tetras, 3 dalmation mollies, 2 mystery snails, 5 amano shrimp, and a decent amount of plants, all from Aquarium Coop . In one of the 10-gal tanks which is my quarantine tank, I have 3 mollies and 7 molly fry. One of the mollies I bought was pregnant and had fry a few days into quarantine. The other 10-gal is my newest that I'm currently using to grow out some new plants and try some new things to see what I can learn before I decide on what might live in there long term. The 5-gal sits right next to me on my desk with my buddy 'Delta' who is a mustard gas betta. A little bit about me - I am a senior web developer at a marketing agency working from home which has allowed me the opportunity to just turn around from my desk to spend time with my fish periodically throughout the day. I also play guitar and bass and am big into video games (pc and xbox) and working on/modifying cars. Ive loved geeking out on aquarium knowledge since I started watching aquarium coop videos not long after getting my first tank and am finally getting my start in the forum. Hope everyone has a great day!
  3. Good afternoon everyone! I'm excited to finally join a community and have a place to share stories and ideas and get answers to some pressing questions. Fishkeeping has always fascinated me and as a kid my favorite place to be was in the aquatics room of my local pet store. Even so I never owned a tank until I was in my mid-30s. I'm still fairly new to the hobby as I just set up my first aquarium (29g) a few years ago. Now I've since sold that tank and have about 8 others. I even set up a planted 75g for my daughter's school! In the next several months I'll be buying a house and have a basement room that will serve as a small fish room. I look forward to sharing that journey and getting ideas from everyone here! -Aaron Miller
  4. Mick here, I've been keeping fish as long as I can remember. I'll be turning 30 this year so I reckon that's about 20 years in the hobby. I started with an Opaline Gourami and a Kuhli Loach and I've been hooked ever since. I've kept most tropical fish available from my local stores at one time or another, including a fish only saltwater tank. I started dabbling in planted tanks about 10 years ago (geez) and I don't think I'd ever have a tank without them. Currently I'm keeping a 110 gallon planted tank with a variety of Tetras. Also a 75 gallon blackwater tank to be stocked with the larger bodied Tetras. Thanks to the inspiration of Dean and Randy I've also started a fish-corner-of-basement to try my hand at breeding and collecting. I've always been hesitant to share my tanks, not out of a feeling of inadequacy but rather not wanting to deal with the internet as we know it. I trust this be a great place to share my knowledge and experience, looking forward to it Thanks for the great work Cory.
  5. I just decided to get back into the hobby (after close to a 40 year break since high school) and I found Cory on YouTube. I have watched a BOATLOAD of Cory videos on YouTube over the last 3-4 weeks. I have also watched "Father Fish" (he's fun and interesting character) as I am into ecosystem tanks. Over the holiday I started working on my 90 gallon planted tank. I have made my own dirt base with a fine sand over the top to keep everything down. I've got my hard scape done but am waiting on getting a laundry sink installed in my basement where my tank is. It's been lots of fun getting acquainted with the hobby and thanks to Cory I have learned a LOT. I am placing an order this evening for several items I need as my way of giving back for all the great help you've been Cory. Reciprocity! I admire your patience to do things right vs. fast and taking the high ground. It's very appealing and made me want to purchase from you guys and give back to you as well. I'm getting a medium sponge filter - so excited about the slightly larger hole size and the closed bottom you make special. Love the innovation. I will also be hot-rodding my filer with an extra sponge and bio rings as well! Thanks for all you do for the bobby Basement Nerm Bethlehem, PA, USA
  6. I hope this isn't violating any rules. I want to get some Aquarium Coop airline tubing, but it's hard to justify $6.99 shipping on a $5.00 product. If there were a few people back here on the East Coast that would like to go in on an order and split the shipping, I'd love to work something out.
  7. So i am moving across country from Florida to Pennsylvania in the next 4-6 months, and I'm kinda excited. Mostly because i feel like it's a free excuse for a reset in aquarium keeping but i get to start over with over a year's worth of knowledge to build from the ground up correctly. I am kinda sad because of our current predicament, I'm not going to be able to keep all our fish that have stayed with us for so long. We have 7.5, 10, 10, and a 75 gallon tank teeming with life, not to mention 2 cats and a dog. The plan is to take the inhabitants of the 7.5 and 10 gallons with us in a tub in the car and all my fave plants from all the tanks in a 5 gallon bucket, but the 75 gallon inhabitants will probably have to go back to the lfs 😧 So i do have a question. In a perfect world, we're moving to Bethlehem, PA, but we're also looking at other cities that are about an hour away in any direction of Bethlehem, Allentown, Quakertown. Is anyone from that region known what the water conditions are like up there? Or the more fun question, what are cool/good fish stores in those cities? I value the opinions of any locals to that region on this forum higher than randos on google reviews.
  8. Hello everyone!! Am a relatively new Aquarist (started Sept 2019) and am very happy to be here. A little about me: Devoted most of my career in the electronics repair field. Now, retired, I can concentrate more on my hobbies: Fish-keeping, amateur radio, flying aerobatic radio controlled aircraft, writing, volunteering & Rosary-making.
  9. Hello, My name is Rick and I joined to share experiences and gather information for my stocking/care plans. Its actually been about 20 years now since I last had an aquarium and I was quite young then. My fiance has been keeping a 10 gallon for the last year or so with some harlequins, a few corys and a bristlenose. We recently got a 75 gallon and got it setup with live plants and a school of 6 congo tetras. The plan is to move the bristlenose over to the 75 here soon and the corys once the newer ones get a little bit bigger. We want to make a few ropefish the core fish of the 75 gallon but what little information there is online for them seems to vary wildly on their size and care so I'm hoping to talk with more people who have had them. Here are some pictures of one of the corys and bristle in the 10 gallon and some of the 75 gallon with the congos. Edit: Im waiting for some Crinum Calamistratum to come in stock at Co-op to order with some root tabs, I want to put it behind the right side of the driftwood arch to give a good focal point. that and I'm a sucker for long wavy plants. (sorry for the varying picture quality there seems to be some compression issue with some of them, I will get more later tonight)
