So ive been keeping fish now for a while and snapped up a 6ft custom build aqarium and light gantry and some bits and bobs, all brand new never used. i got it all for the time it took me to prep and varnish a bedroom floor, so a great bargain about half a shift for this dream set up. So what have i got and whats liveing in it.
THE SET UP

2x 54w 5ft strip bio moonlights

4x german blue rams
2x apistograma a. Agrazi
2x bronze cory
2x m/f neon dwarf gourami

And a patrage in a pair tree...
So like the tittle says a fresh start, av ripped all the plants out and used to have a 3ft 3d back drop and 2ft side drop, but that was a algae magnet and after a year of bearing with it, it had to go. Got control over the algae now with extra external and a water polisher to catch any spours.
Next steps moven on from theses smaller fish, i wiuld like to build a scape to sout discus maybe just a pair plus most of my fush i keep just now, looking for good tips on the way but for now lets get this started!!!
