    My Intro

    Like a lot of people I had a number of 10-20 gallons through the years growing up. At the start of May this year, I made the mistake of looking at a sale at Petsmart in Dartmouth. I now have a 4 ft, 55 gal freshwater community tank over stocked (of course) with a wide variety.

    Mid June, I added a 3 foot, 65 gal high tank with Malawi cichlids. Also overstocked, but more intentional because they are cichlids. Right now -

    2 Metriaclima callainos
    2 Labidochromis caeruleus
    4 Pelvicachromis pulcher
    2 Metriaclima lombardoi
    2 Melanochromis auratus
    2 Metriaclima zebra (OB)
    3 Aulonocara maylandi
    4 Hemichromis guttatus
    1 Platydoras costatus
    4 nerite snails

    And, I just added a 20 gallon freshwater planted that I am playing and learning with. It has two dwarf blue gouramis, a couple of harlequin rasboras, a couple of dwarf rasboras, 1 guppy fry (re-homed from the community tank, 3 panda corys and an ivory mystery snail.

    Addictive hobby....
