I gave up saltwater years ago as I was so concerned about the capture of fish (there is more breeding now). I have since had planted tanks and love it! I keep mine simple, low tech, but super high filtration and lots of easy to grow plants. My smallest 10 gallon almost maintains itself. I now have a 2 ten gallons and 2 17 gallons because I wanted a mix of fish which I could not put in just one tank!! I guess I am addicted. I think my favorite fish to watch are the longfin peppered Cory (they have actually had babies). Also in that tank I have a gourami who rules and comes up to me for feeding every am! My style tends to be a schooling fish, one center piece fish and Cory!! Oh, and the shrimp are also fun to watch. Enjoy!! BTW, I tried out controlsoil for the first time and am hooked, super easy cycling and plants grow like crazy.
Fish+Plants thanks you!!
