  1. Tank Journals
    I've been posting all over the place so I figured it was time to collect everything in one place, especially since I keep changing things every day or two. Wish I'd taken more pictures along the way. I had fish as a kid, and even an aquarium for goldfish, but never a tropical tank (despite...
  2. Fish
    I'm curious if anyone has or knows of a list of fish that make good choices for open top/rimless tanks. Basically anything that's not prone to excessive jumping.
