Dark River Aquatics Posted June 10, 2021 Share Posted June 10, 2021 Hello! I’ve listened to/watched the Coop videos for a long time and have been meaning to join the forum for a while and finally did it 🙂 I live in New England and have kept tanks off and on for 20 or so years, as entertainment and as therapy for anxiety and The Big Sad. I keep freshwater, all planted tanks and mostly smaller South American fish at this point - currently mostly different species of apistogramma, ancistrus, cories, mixed tetras/pencilfish, some guppies, and a larger cichlid tank with Oscars and a few others (it is currently a 75g and will become a 150-180 soon). I dabble with scaping and breeding, and am currently breeding/raising triple red cockatoo apistos, Opaline & yellow head borellii, and juveniles from wild caught pairs of Trifasciata & Tefé. Also breeding & raising Ancistrus Rio Paraguay from a pretty prolific colony, long fin calico BNs, and am growing out some super reds to try next. Oh; and mixed mutt guppies too just because they’re fun and it’s dang near impossible not to breed them 🤪 I also try to use a lot of house plants in my systems and have several DIY above tank sumps with various things, the next goal is trying to grow some red mangroves in freshwater. I’ll attach some pictures of a few of my current tanks, some current fish and some fish & tanks from the past - I’m attempting to do this from my phone and am a little technologically challenged so hopefully it works. I’m very much looking forward to finally being a more active member of the community after a long time lurking! Cheers! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
