Post New guy :)

Hello everyone. This is my first time doing a post. I am currently in college and am studying marine biology. I have a 20g freshwater tank up here with a red belly piranha in it. I am going to sell back the piranha once he reaches a size that is not appropriate with the size of my tank. I am hoping to make a saltwater aquarium next year and bring it to college. I love fish and everything about them. I am also looking into breeding discus. My dad currently has 7 large discus fish (two of which are breeding). I am thinking about selling the babies in Michigan. Give me some feedback :)

something seeded for you next filter.
