    Hi. I don't want to bore you with story of my life, so I'll keep it short. I've had an aquarium when I was a kid. It is not a fond memory. I've had no idea about hobby. My parents didn't either. A lot of fish died, then it was good for a while and then got covered by green spot algae. Ended up removing it all together and trying to forget.

    Fast forward to 2018 and I find myself rediscovering fish and learning more and more new things about the hobby. Got absolutely fascinated by aquascaping and thus my tank is an attempt at student version (as in, cheap) aquascape of my own. One day I'll turn it into something positively awesome, you'll see!

    For now though, I'm just here, struggling with bigger and lesser issues, trying to get a hold of the hobby not only in theory but also in practice, fixing various mistakes the best as I can and getting from them the most I can.

    Before you get angry at me, I do realise my tank is overstocked, for now it's all good though. Snails and pleco aren't fully grown yet, so bacteria will have time to build up at it's own pace. Plant's will grow too and act as safety cushion. I'm also absolutely able to handle water changes twice a week. So, don't worry, there is a plan. And if I would ever find myself unable to handle the situation, I'll find a way to place pleco and some of the snails in some other aquarium. I'll either get another tank or rehome them entirely.
