I am renting and won't be able to make any significant alterations. Also, do you know where I can aquire high quality fish?
Thanks for the compliment. My tanks are low-tech natural setups (as opposed to Amano's very
high-tech), and the method I use is set out in the series "A Basic Approach to the Natural Planted Aquarium" at the top of the Aquarium Plants section of the forum.
My house is a rancher on a concrete pad, so I have no worries over my 6 tanks in the fish room. A 100g aquarium weighs a lot, and if the building is frame, be careful. Placing the tank lengthwise across the floor joists as opposed to parallel with them helps; but I would get some advice from members who know a bit more about big tanks in wood frame houses if that is what you're in.
I'll leave it for members in Texas to comment on good fish stores for fish.
