Talking HI From PR.

Hey guys.. i love this forum! got tons of information. im actually not new to fishtanks. ive had them since i was 7. but most of the time it was trial/error. and yeah i had a good trials. but i never knew anything of pH, ammonia, nitrites or nitrates. but i was 7, jajaja, cmon how many 7 yr olds understand that?
but now, 10 yrs later, i gave up on fishtanks for a couple of months, mostly because i didnt had the time.
but once a aquarist, always an aquarist.. right?
so i regained interest after about half a year or 8 months of not doing anything with my tank, and this time i decided to relearned from previous mistakes and basically start from scratch since i have many lessons to learn that cant be learned from experience (again ammonia talk again.. ). but i have my fair amount of experience with aquariums and i think most importantly, which fish go together and care levels, etc. which i think is really valuable knowledge and what i don't know i can simply learn from here.

I currently have a 60 gallon vertical octagonal tank (yeah i wish i didnt have a vertical but, it was a gift) with 1 bloodparrot in good conditions, not deformed or bulge and kinda aggressive and unshy.. (not dyed, completely natural, against dyed anything), 1 pleco, and about 10-15 assorted tetras. they go along well, unless you put a tetra too small, which sometimes in inevitable since common fish stores employees are duumb and put smaller ones even when you tell them not to.

So i hope to see you around the site learning from you or giving you advice. great site! and keep it up!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Glad to hear that you're back in the hobby. Any way you could post a picture of that tank? It sounds really interesting.

Welcome to TFK! I also want to see a pic of your tank. I can't say I've ever even seen like you are describing. Any pics you can share? We LOVE pics.

Welcome to the forum. It looks like you'd need a really long gravel vac to reach the bottom of your tank? Is it hard to clean?

yeah its hard to clean it, i normally clean it but not as often as it should be, as it requires a lloong arm and work. im taller than the tank thankfully so i can reach w/o much trouble now.

and hi!
