Greetings from the DC Metro Area

Hello all.

My name is Ryan and I'm from the DC Metro area. I currently have two aquariums, both of which are newly setup and beginning to cycle. First is a 46 Gallon bowfront with a Marineland Penguin 350, currently stocked with 6 Penguin Tetras and 6 Longfin Blue Danios. Second is a 10 Gallon standard with a Marineland Penguin 100, stocked with 3 Serpae Tetras.

I have been keeping fish for a little over 10 years. The biggest aquarium I've owned was a 180g saltwater that I never got to complete and ended up selling it off.

Hope to become an active member here.

WELCOME BlackTipReef AKA Ryan!!!!

46 Gallon Bow's are nice set up's.

What are you future stocking plans?

I like plants in bow fronts, you can add them to the front "curved out area" and it adds a lot of depth - you going to do plants?

Thanks all for the welcomes.

The 180 sure was a beast - more than I had the money to complete. I could have probably gone freshwater, but it was already a pre-established saltwater tank for a couple years before I purchased it.

In response to the stock plans, here we go:

46 Gallon Bow
-6 Penguin Tetras
-6 Longfin Blue Danios
-6 Diamond Tetras
-6 Lemon Tetras
-6 Beunos Aires Tetras
-6 to 8 Zebra Danios
-6 Corydoras Catfish
-2 Roseline Sharks
-2 small breeds of Plecos

There will be more, just haven't made any final decisions yet. Some other tetras maybe?

10 Gallon Standard
I actually took back the Serpaes to the LFS today because one of them started showing signs of a fungal infection. Didn't want to try to treat this in a newly established tank, so I traded them for 3 Brilliant Rasboras.

The total stocking in the 10 Gallon will be:
-3 Brilliant Rasboras
-3 Columbian Tetras
-3 Pristilla Tetras
-2 Corydoras Catfish

I know this one will be a bit full, but will be keeping my eye on water quality.
