Now that you all saved my tank...I'll say hi!
Hi everyone! Thanks for all your help in the emergency section over the past few days.

I got into keeping fish when I was 16 or 17. I started with goldfish and was clueless. All I knew was they were pretty and change the filter once in a while. So once they all died because of my water quality, a new concept to me since it was just water, my lfs suggested ciclids due to the hard water in the area. I did well with them for 2 years and once again that water quality thing came up but I was determined. So I tried mollys. I went to bed one night and had 6 mollys and when I woke up, I had more than 200!! I was still working on water quality, not I had babies?! So I gave up once I saw the bigger fish eat all the babies. I brought the fish back to my lfs.

Now that I'm older, have a good job and my own house, my ultimate goal is a biotope. No plastic plants in my tank, they just look fake. I would love to have a heavily planted tank for my swordtails and guppies to play in and have babies. I have 3 male swords, 6 female swords, 2 pair of fancy guppies, 1 very pretty pleco, 2 clown loach and 1 albino bala shark who doesn't really fit in but is peaceful with the other fish in a 30gallon tank. Right now it's lightly planted sinc this is my first try at live plants. I want to get a feel for them and see how I do before I spend $100+ on plants. My son who is 2 is learnig everything as we go along so hopefully we'll share the same love for fish and the ocean. My first love will always be Great Whites but there a bit to big to keep in my living room so my little friends keep me company.
