Thread: New girl

    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

    North Bay indeed... Pretty good fishing up here, everyone mostly goes after the walleye. I'm happy just catching something. Georgian Bay is much better, more species and less commerical impact.
