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!
