Ok so i started a tank last quarter, and for a while i didnt have plants and fish, so the tank looked horrible because algae took over my plants and killed almost everything. I waited until thanksgiving to bring plants back from SF, and i finally got the tank to a point where it was low maintenance which is what a college student needs! so far its been an easy tank to take care of.
I am running i think a 32watt pc light, this tom rapids canister filter, no heater, an ADA co2 advanced sytstem.
for fish i have these raspora maculatas, yellow shrimp, amano shrimp, and ottos. The shrimp and ottos really cleaned up the tank within a few days it was amazing.
im switching from electrical engineering to chemical engineering. im a junior transfer...yes la is fun so far! havnt been to any fish stores down here, everything was brought down from SF
Not many around here.
Are you into SW too, or just FW? For FW, you have Nature Aquarium and Fumis around here. Oranda Aquarium. FW selection kinda sucks here. Travel farther and you have a ton of stores in OC, All About Fish in Long Beach, Aquarium Center in Sherman Oaks.
