Parakeett Posted April 13, 2022 Share Posted April 13, 2022 Hello hello! I started with the hobby at the end of February telling my boyfriend I was interested in maybe starting an aquarium since I loved my friend’s at work, but I told him not to worry because I was gonna take it slow a steady and do some research. Two days later I was buying a 13gallon off Craigslist from someone who had over 1000 gallons of aquariums in their home breeding cichlids that had only started fish keeping two years ago, I immediately knew my fate would be similar. I now have 4 aquariums in the apartment - 5ga Marineland Portrait my friend gave me with a murderous betta, 13ga with Panda corys, Ember tetras, and nerite snails currently doing the med trio together after I saw some worms dancing out of a snail, a 20L with my axolotl Soul Eater gifted to me from my aquarium loving work friends, and a 20ga high that I set up because I loved the Gold Barbs too much that the LFS said I could return once my 13ga was cycled. I have been fortunate enough to have had cycled filter media go into all the tanks except the 20high which got someone wood transplants instead. I feel like such a scientist using the master test kit to check on everyone. I have also gone quite plant crazy with mostly Anubias, Java fern, and Amazon sword (but there are a few stem plants I’m trying out) but the lotl got Pothos cuttings out the back instead. I ended up with black beard algae in the 13 gallon already, so everything is just a work in progress, but loving it so far 🤗 I have paused for now for more aquariums, the plan is if I’m still 100% invested in six months and not burned out, then I’ll add a 5 gallon shrimp haven in the bedroom. Added some pictures that show off my aquariums, they’re not all exact of today because I’m a tinkerer, but you get the idea. Have a wonderful day, Jennifer 7 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
