Hello everyone - Rob from Indiana

Recommended Posts

Have watched this forum from the sidelines for a long time - love everything the group stands for

Out of High school pet store employee - late 80s Store owner - followed by 10 years retail management - and currently 22 years in construction road excavation field

I have always had single 37 gallon tank in house after my store owning days -

I started watching co-op videos somewhere in 2017 and was really inspired to get back into fish keeping on a larger scale - added tanks from there.

Spent my vacation, Memorial week combining all nano tanks to single 7 foot rack in my office

I have an out of control illness when it comes to BN plecos - spending my time moving pairs around to see what variations can produce.

Our local stores - Petsmart and Petco get regular donations of them and mystery snails to help with overpopulation

working on Neon Tetra spawns currently and different Cory Cats- only Albino successful at this time

My current and future setups are :

 2-65gallon,  2-5gallon, 4-7gallon, 2-15gallon Fluval, 2-9gallon Fluval, 1-20gallon long - and very soon plan to add 2-40gallon breeder rack

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful information I have discovered on this forum-

Welcome! Hope you can share your breeding knowledge with us 🙂 Would love to hear how you work with your neons especially! I have some green neons that I'd love to try making more of. So shy, I'd rarely see them if it weren't for my "dither" endlers!

Welcome. Very sweet setup. What kind of racking system are you working with? I like that it's a bit classier than your typical warehouse/shop/garage rack

Thank you -

They are Raybee from Amazon

Only downside was the 400lb per shelf issue - not so much a worry with all nano tanks

They're metal shelves. I have everything on oversized leveling pad - and can see all parts behind the tanks except for what rest near office desk -

I was concerned there might be water standing without my knowledge - so far so good

I love all the bristlenose you have. That chocolate has a nice full beard that I am jealous of. I have been breeding bristlenose and I am trying to find my next pleco to try and breed. 

He's now somewhere near the 6 year old mark -He's still extremely  healthy and he still takes care of his young like he always has.
