Tony Hey Guys! My name is Tony (Jesus Antonio Gaytan) but my friends and family call me Tony. I was born in Mexico in 1993. When I was about 9, I moved to the United States due to my Dad's job transfer. I Lived in Mesa Arizona, and studied Elementary School and 2 Years of Junior High (Middle school). On the year of 2007, I was renewing my visa as I did every year, but was denied so I had to move back to Mexico. My dad, was hired by a Canadian company (Bombardier Aerospace) and had to move to Canada for training and program courses. He lived there for a year, so I had to take care of my mom and my older sister. Right now I am a student in High school, and when I grow up, I want to become a Marine Biologist.


Right now I have 2 aquariums:
My first tank is a 32 gallon all glass tank. It measures 36 inches long, 13 inches across and 18 inches high. It currently has a Pink Convict Cichlid named "Samson" and my new baby Striped Raphael Catfish named "Bruce" My water parameters are: 0 ammonia, 0 Nitrites and 15 Nitrates. My pH is of 8.4 and my temperature is 78°.

Future Plans

Well in the future I hope to be able to get a 180 gallon tank, but not soon. I would like to have it planted and I want it to be a community tank. I would like to get into Saltwater, but again, not right now. I need to rest haha. I am happy with my current set-ups so I won't be getting anything for now.


I would like to thank Fishlore for giving me the this great opportunity. I have gotten real close to a lot of members. First off I want to thank Lucy. She has helped me and guided me along my fish keeping experience. Next, I want to thank Shawnie. She has made me happy and thankful for what I have, and she is a wonderful, fun person. Next is Marie (bolivianbaby), she has ALWAYS been here for me, and the times Fishlore has been down, we have been chatting away on msn. Aquarist48, Martinismommy, Navyscuba, Capekate, and a WHOLE lot of members.

Thank you all for making such a wonderful site.
