Hello from Melbourne Australia
Hello Everyone,

I have only just discovered this forum and have only in the past 3 months had my Aquarium.

I am not too sure of the correct terms/names for the fish I have in my tank so I will put them up as I know them.

I have a 240ltr 4ft tank with external bio filter.

At the moment I have one neon tetra, 2 Pleco's, 2 Golden Catfish, 6 molly's and what started out as 5 platy's, has now turned into 34 at last count! They love to breed. I also have one adult snail and it's 20 or so offspring.

I did have 2 clown loaches, 2 pakistani loaches, 10 neon tetras, 5 harlequins, 2 glass catfish and 2 eels until recently, but my tank was infected with ICK. Not sure how I obtained it but it wiped out my pair of breeding plecos as well. Within a week I lost more than half of my fish

I am really love having my fish and my tank. I hope to learn a lot from these forums.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to being able to contribute to discussions in the near future
