This was my first planted tank. I have had over 10 plus tanks in the last 7 or so years. I was really into bettas for a while and had 5 plus tanks going at the same time with the almond leafs and weekly water changes. So i feel im pretty good on how to keep tanks thriving. Just started a planted tank since november. Luckily for me i had a friend give me advice on how to keep a planted tank including algae, co2, weekly water changes 25-50%, ph gh kh, what fish to keep in a tank, shrimps, soft/hardwater plants. So i think im okay on how to keep fish in a tank. But thank you for your concern. Like i said before im just interested in seeing different types of fish and want to expand my knowledge on types of fish.

Scotty B those shrimps are amazing. My friend actually got me into fw shrimps. I honestly got into planted tanks for that reason.

I bet the older members on here can remember when the blue-eyed panaque was a $15 fish, maybe 20 years ago? My guess is they have been fished out of their native habitat to the point where they are only found very rarely, if at all.

If you want a fish that is extinct in it's natural habitat and only exists in the hobby pick up some white cloud mountain fish. They have been eliminated from their native mountain streams and are only found in tropical fish breeding ponds.

^ that's untrue. The blue eyed panque is hard to source because the river system it comes from has been under control of guerilla militants since the 90s.
