Halo apa kabar?

(That means how are you in Indonesian).

I'm Aldian from Indonesia.

When I was a child, my parents kept fresh water fish only tank. And my father usually brought me to LFS to buy fish: neon, goldfish, albino pleco etc. Whatever we saw and liked, that what we bought. And as a result, the fish usually didn't last long in the tank.

Fast forward many years...

I bought a 10G tank for my son and kept goldfish there. We also kept crabs some times at this tank. But since it was too small and much hassle to maintain it, I converted it into a QT.

My father-in-law likes planted tank and keeps two tanks at his home. When he upgraded his 20G tank into 40G tank about 4 years ago, he gave me his old 20G tank along with its light and HOB filter, and that got me started in the hobby again. Only this time, I started with planted tank :)

After a few weeks, I felt that 20G was too small and upgraded to 40G, and sold the 20G. I believe that 40G is ideal size tank. It's not too big, and not too small, just at the right price and size.

And a few months after that, for my birthday gift, I got 95G tank and its cabinet from my wife and father-in-law. I bought the lights and filters myself.

Actually I still want one more tank. 200G (7' x 24" x 24") tank would be nice for Geophagus or Tropheus planted tank :-D

I also had ADF, crabs and shrimps planted tanks... But gave up on them:
- Crabs are escape artists
- Shrimps are among the lowest of the food pyramid
- ADF was hard to feed and kept jumping out of the tank

Fish is much easier :lol:

There were many other scape and animals, but unfortunately there was no pic. Either I forgot to take pics before resetting the tank, or lost the pics when replacing the laptop.
