    Hi @Anewday!

    I seem to be okay with plants but there have been instances where I've confused the colours on fish when trying to describe them etc.

    Number Of Years In Hobby -
    started with guppies in 2010

    Fish Keeping Profile -
    received a 3ft tank for free from a friend in 2010, quickly added another. Within a year a 6 ft tank moved in and soon another 6ft until an intervention was required. Breeding guppies for a fish shop is not for the fainthearted. MTS at it's worst meant we had 60 odd tanks set up in the house and garage. Currently running 9 breeding a variety of cichlids (tropheus/Similis/Brevis/"Flamebacks"/Alto Compressiceps). Hoping to breed puncs in 2021 and maybe sterbai in 2022. One planted tank that desperately needs more attention than i give it

    Favourite Fish Species -
    all the fish in the sea

    Favourite LFS -
    used to be Birds for Africa Fourways .. probably Kenilworth Aquarium Centre now but its so far away

    Aquatic Likes -
    the community can be great

    Aquatic Dislikes -
    the community can be awful

    Aquatic Achievements -
    buying Alotolamprologus Compressiceps fry, raising them to breed, only took 4 years

    Non-fish related fact -
    You can have too many aquariums:lol:

    Other hobbies -
    sports/photography/travel/scuba

    Edit: adding some photos

    Initial set up with Valis and dwarf neons and some tetras that I'd managed to keep alive for 7 years (2019)

    2020: first major changes
    Pulled all the Valis, dwarf neons and some other fish moved on. Spent a small fortune on anubias all kinds of varieties, buce, still have the rainbows here, the swords were doing well

    20201002_161456.jpg

    2021 .. I just rescaped the whole tank. Changed the hard scape, sold off some of the plants that were getting too big and introduced 25 neons, white cloud minnows, pencil fish and 20 shrimp. Rainbows have moved to another tank. Plecos have started digging bottom left corner under the flat rock since i took the photo. Also purchased 2 otos and some dwarf hair grass. Early stages:

    If you could I'd gladly get maybe 20 for me and possibly more for others. I'm in the UAE and we have none here

    Hey @Neil_86 and welcome to the forum :thumbup:

    Why don’t you start a tank thread under Members systems or in the Planted tank section. We love pics etc :)
