I have been involved with fish since the age of two or so. I had my first aquarium with goldfish that my Mom and Dad got for me. Until one day my dad brought home some crabs and put them in the tank - bye, bye fish. Since then I had in one way or another interest in fish. When I was in middle school I got another tank, a 20 gallon that my mom got for me for my birthday. Of course neither She or I knew about the nitrogen cycle. In that tank I had some ID sharks, koi fish, guppies, mollies, then I got myself a 10 gallon and put my little ones there. So I had to move and go to college, so gave away my fish and believe it or not the tanks and filters and all are still at my Mom's.
The second tank is a 10 gallon tank with fry fish on it from my community tank. Silver Mollies, Platys, and Creamcicle Lyretail mollies, one Cory catfish and a few snails. Feed them dried flake food 2 times a day and brine shrimp. Temp is 79, ph is 7.4, 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrites, 20 Nitrates. CFL lights, Marineland 50 watts heater, and Top Fin 30 Filter. 2 months set up.
