Afishionado Posted March 25 Share Posted March 25 Hello all, After being a long time silent reader of the forum, I finally decided it was time I created an account and introduced myself. I’ve been keeping aquariums for approximately four years, and have a great interest in breeding fish, as well as keeping jungle-style heavily planted tanks (although none of my tanks have ever ended up quite as jungly as I’d like). I started out with a 20H where I kept a community tank, which naively included a male-female guppy pair, which subsequently turned into hundreds of guppies. This got me hooked on breeding, and in the next few months I started breeding blue neos, as well as bristlenose plecos out of this tank, and trying to grow them in my new 10 gallon (the start of my mts). Looking back, I recognize many things I would do different considering what I know now, however I still look back on this time fondly, and I think I learned a lot over this period. Since then I have experimented lots with my aquarium keeping, and highlights included purchasing my 75 gallon, which has been my pride and joy, as well as breeding blue tiger parrots, neon dwarf rainbows, boesmani rainbows, and somehow even my panda cories! My 75 Gallon in its prime: Mama blue tiger parrot, some baby rainbows, and one very blurry young cory: Papa blue tiger parrot, and his many offspring (the ring of Val was very temporary, ended up planted in gravel): The only photo evidence I have of my corydoras breeding - a group of offspring in a bucket on their way to my lfs: In terms of future plans, I feel my 75 gallon is no longer where I want it to be, and am considering switching it over to something new, perhaps featuring angelfish or opaline gouramis. My 20H I plan to dedicate to a breeding trio of super red bristlenose (unless they end up in the 75, still unsure), and I have recently purchased an under gravel filter for this tank which I am excited to try out. My 10 gallon I am in the process of setting up as a very experimental dirted tank, which someday will most likely feature either endler’s livebearers, neo shrimp, and/or maybe microrasboras of some sort. Life’s always busy, so any progress on my aquariums can take a while to be made, and I may not always be the most active on the forum. Either way, I’m excited to finally be able to share my hobby with fellow nerms, and greatly appreciate all I’ve already learned from this form!😁 3 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
