Here is my history

2003- a month later in 2003

Goldfish bowl... lets just say it didnt go too well.


2005-2006

60 litre tropical
Plants: Dwarf hair grass, lily's, some long tall thin leaved thing, amazon swords, rontundala rontundifolia and others. They all grew bloody well considering I had no special substrate, didnt use fertilizer and no co2.

2006- 2008

My beloved marine tank, which sadly isnt set up because a skimmer pipe came of and emptied the contents of the tank onto the front room floor...

90 litre tank, marine
Corals: Euphyllia Panchora, Zoanthus., Rhodactis, GSP, Candy canes.. was oging to move into sps, thank god i didnt spend all the money on it :p

Sad that this ended, but I know that I will start another marine in the future.

And now we have my 15litre planted nano :D

Ive had a pretty all round experience with fish from ponds to marine which has resulted in me getting a part time job in a LFS, helps pay for all the things you need at 15!

In the 1st pic there is a Maroon Clown, and the blue fish are Blue/Green chromis, 2nd pic shows the Maroon and a Midas Blenny, the last pic, shows my Powder Blue Tang, and a False Lemonpeel angel grazing on nori seaweed.

daftndirekt what lighting did you use in the marine tank? I love the colour it gives.
