1). I absolutely enjoy watching my group of Silver Dollars. All 5 of them are in a 135 gallon with some larger cichlids.
2). I don't keep plants anymore because my Severum eats them and my Blood Parrots destroy them. But I enjoyed keeping Java Fern and Amazon Swords
3). Never really bought lighting separately from my tanks all my lighting came with the tanks.
4). All the equipment already came with the tank (135 gallon). Except the gravel vacuum which is a MarineLand Gravel Vaccum.
5). I like my Tetra Cotta Pots and Spiderwood the most. The both serve as hiding spots for my big guys.
6).
2.5 Gallon Fancy Crowntail Betta
10 Gallon, currently working on it. I'm going to house a single male Apisto AgassiziI in it.
40 gallon 4 Male Yellow Labs
55 gallon- Gave it away to my niece lol.
135 gallon- 3 YoYo Loaches, 1 Synodontis Eupterus, 1 FireMouth cichlid, 1 Gold Severum, 2 Blood Parrots and 5 silver dollars.

1. My favorite fish that I've got right now would be a hard choice between Apollo my gold severum (he's in my 75), my dojo loaches (also in my 75), and Max my dominant Male Sajica cichlid (in my 55 right now)

2. My favorite plant would be pretty close between anacharis (simply for it's low maintenance requirements) and anubias nana (pretty little bullet proof plant)

3. I'm a fan of the off brand AQUANEAT on ebay. Thanks to bizaliz3

4. Hands down the best equipment I've got are my 2 sunsun canisters. So easy and reliable.

5. DRIFTWOOD. I love me some driftwood in my tanks. Got lots of pieces and I have a hard time not picking up more when I see someone is getting rid of them cheap

6. 4 aquariums right now. 75 gallon, 55 gallon, 40 gallon breeder, and 35 gallon tall. But the 40 breeder is not running or set up right now. I soon will be downsizing to 2 tanks so the 55 and 35 will be eliminated once the 40 is set up.

1. My guianacara owroewefI are my favorite fish right now. I love watching them interact with their environment and the other fish.

2. Crypt undulata, it is easy, lush, beautiful colors, and my fish don't try to eat it!

3. All I have is a shop light on my big tank, and stock with my others. I'm hoping for a Finnex Planted+ 24/7 eventually.

4. My windowbox overhead sump, based on Joey's video (King of DIY). Keeps my nitrates very very low!

5. Large rocks I collected from my yard that form the planted island of my 55.

6. Just went up to 6. I keep fighting the MTS battle and losing. My 55 gallon is my main tank. My sons have a 20 gallon tall, and my two daughters have 2.5g betta tanks. Then there's the 5 gallon which is soon becoming a greenwater culture for the fry we hope to raise in the 20 gallon long I just picked up.

2) I have to say anarcis if that's how you spell it because it just grows and grows and I made a sort of forrest for my parrots to chase each other through

3) and don't even get me started on lighting, what a load of s these units are from the t8 unit with the bad starter what's probably going to fail soon to my t5 unit which I have already had to replace, wish I had a good set of leds.

4)equipment, well I have some great stuff but today I'm going to show 2, first up is my 600lph hob all pond solutions filter running on my 60 litre sw tank for mechanical filtration. This thing was £14 off amazon and runs silent, perfect with a good flow and polish my water soo good

And my refractometer which I paid £17 for and os just as good as another if your getting in to sw get one of these off amazon
IMG_1533.JPG


5) for my best decoration it has to be terracotta pots, you can't ask for anything better just buy the size you need get your angle grinder out and boom perfect hide for next to nothing and they mature so nice in the water

Super impressive!!! Thanks for answering Demeter !

So basically, you are focusing on African Cichlids... Interesting...
I'm breeding a couple African lines ATM but I also have seven bettas. I've tried breeding the male plakat but he is super agressive, he's torn up 3 different girls so I think I need to give up on him. I'm also very slowly getting into BN plecos. I've been trying to get a female, but now I have 2 males and a juvenile that needs to grow a bit more before I can guess it's gender. Might as well have a BN for each of the 20gal+ tanks

1. Best Fish: this is a really hard question.
My favorite fish ever is Panda Corydoras, but any cories are great. I have 3 different types in different tanks.
My school of 10 pandas are in a 55 gallon tank.
Other best fish are smaller species of Plecos and various South American cichlids.

2. Best Plant: any kind of Anubias. I have tried many types of plants with simple led lights, fancier leds and t8 lights and with/without fertilizers. Anubias have been the easiest and most hardy plants for me. And the look great.

3. Best Light: it depends what you can afford but for me I like my satellite leds on timers. I can set the lighting as light or dark as I want and adjust the whites/blues and they have cloud cover and storm settings. Also they weren't crazy expensive.

4. Best Equipment: I love my FX6 canister and the EheI'm heaters. Just good quality and easy to use/clean. For smaller tanks I like the Aqueon Quiet Flow and Aquaclear HOB filters.

5. Best Decorations: pool filter sand, mopanI wood, large-ish rounded river rocks, ceramic caves (the man-man cichlid stones are nice but expensive).

6. How Many Aquariums: the most I had was 10 at one time but I had to consolidate. I currently have 5.
135 g
65 g
55 g
29 g
15 g

Quarantine: 20 g long
