I'm a new return to the hobby after a 30+ yr hiatus (have lived here in Berkeley county for 12 yrs, prior to that must admit to being a California native and fish were there!). Anyway currently have 2 fully planted FW tanks, my favorite is the one with 4 fresh water puffers, some gold tetras, a couple of Amano shrimp and red cherry shrimp (thought the puffers would grab them but they haven't).
My goal is to add a brackish tank and another FW tank (focus on cichlids who can tolerate our
water)am happy to trade the RCS offspring once my original stock really gets going. Also plants! Hope we all can stay in touch.
