Geez.... first posting and already I did it wrong. Should of posted a new thread and not just reply to another....
I live and work in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Which for those who care to look it up on a map, is on the prairies in central Canada.
I've been keeping freshwater fish on and off for over 30+ years and while I never usually have more than two tanks going, I've run them in size from 10 gals up to 120 gals.
Currently I'm running a 55 gal community tank. Filtration is through an external canister (Eheim), lighting is with 2x 18" 15Watt Hagen Power-Glo lamps. Not a lot of illumination for heavy plant growth but my Java Ferns do well.
It is currently stocked with 5 Australian Rainbows, probably a dozen Kribensis (they once started as a single pair) and a trio of Yo-yo loaches, and 2 lone zebra danios (the danios are "visiting" from my son's 3 gal tank setup while we fix a broken pump).
Been having an issue with algae lately (I actually think it's the blue-green .. slimy, sheety, stuff) so will be posting looking for some guidance.
Looking forward to corresponding and sharing with other fish enthusiasts.
Talk to you soon.
