hello all

I have just found this site quite by accident.

Was trying to log into another fish site with a very close name and got directed here via google so I thought I would register here as well.

As you can tell by my nic I am a chef, I have a restaurant located in a university campus. I am sort of a fish nut, but am actually starting to turn my hobby into a business ;-), that way my hobby can start to pay for itself (bad hobby :lol:)

When I get time later i'll take some fresh shots of the tanks I keep here at my cafe and post them, just wanted to take a moment to say hello.

Hello Chefjamesscott!!! There is no limit in the amount of pics you can post. The more the better!

Do you cook any of your fish? lol.

i have to break it up as only 15 image are allowed lol

ok, I will figure out the whole my tanks thing later but here goes

First may I ask one favour, before anyone flames me for my stock choices please understand that i really do know what im doing, I will answer any ? but im not a steak so don't try to bbq me. With this in mind I ask does a 4 year old need a 44tall jacket?

I will though post pics of what im running here

here is the front of the restaurant

55g, 75g 45g corner

55g 6 electric blue johani

75g frontosa 7 juvi burudi f1 , kavala female f1 male wc and one geo (the angels were very quickly moved as i got the fronts on a flash an pulled all the fish in here an rehomed in the corner 45 and the 100 beside it)
