Laura R Posted January 30, 2022 Share Posted January 30, 2022 (edited) I have made a few posts so thought I should do an introduction. I started with common guppy as a child then got some moor goldfish in my 20's. Goldfish lived 10+ years. I became a medical technologist so the water chemistry fascinated me. Also, I loved outdoor gardening and house plants. Fast forward 40 years...it does go fast! I am now retired and have 11 tanks the largest a 29 gal. My well water is hard and try to keep livestock that is compatible with the water parameters, mostly. I have embraced planted tanks to do indoor gardening (not human edibles) in tanks with diminished edible outdoor gardening as my bones/joints complain (container gardening and raised beds now with many native plants in flower beds). I keep lovely mutt guppies, rainbow platys, corydora, some loaches, a few pleco and rasbora and danio, betta, 1 pea puffer, neocardinia shrimp. Also some tiger barb and gouramis. I love the jungle look in some tanks. Stem plants do not fare well for me but the epiphytes are thriving. I appreciate everyone's experiences and knowledge being shared on this forum and the you-tube and other videos shared on other formats. Always learning, with awe, Laura R. Thanks to Cory and the Aquarium Co-op crew! Edited January 30, 2022 by Laura R 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
