Good day everyone.
While I am not new to the world of aquariums, I am to the idea of aquarium forums and lets just say I am excited. I have had experience with aquariums for the last 15 years of my life and count myself in as being fair knowledgeable in the art. I am not afraid to changed things or research my endless options to death before making a decision
My current set up is a 29 gallon high tank, currently been running for about a month and a half.
My nitrate and ammonia levels have settled to 0, pH is about 7.5-7.8, water temp about 78 F
Well planted with lots of hiding places, and I tend to keep the LED lights off and a lamp nearby as my black skirts are too shy with the bright light.
My fish include; 6 black skirt tetras (purchased together), 4 bronze corydoras (purchased together) and 2 platys (one male one female)
We did have 3 platys but the smallest died within the first two days of having her. She wasn't as robust as the other two so I am attributing poor health to her demise. She was the last picked and I feel bad I even brought her home.
So...a little about me I guess.. I'm 28 years old tomorrow, I have a bachelors degree in environmental geography and have plenty of "Earth bound" hobbies (gardening, birding, fishing, etc). I am an artist (both as employment and hobby). You have a hard time keeping me indoors, unless it's like right now and -20 celcius outside. Born and raised Georgian Bay girl, but am currently living a little north of home.
Um.. I think that's about it.. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone (as much as humanly possible) and looking forward to healthy discussions on aquariums!
I've included a few pictures of my tank and some of it's occupants. They are frustrating to take pictures of because they're flitting around so much
Thanks for your time
