    Hello from Downtown

    Discovered the hobby about 2 years ago with my younger brothers fair won goldfish. I have learned a lot in the last 2 years and have a lot more to learn about. Currently have 2 tanks at home and 2 others I maintain. Just started experimenting with live plants.

    Tanks
    10 Gallon QT tank- 1 Discus 4", 1 Softshell turtle, and 6 corys. Discus needs to be rehomed. Soft shell was a gift and I'm waiting on petcos $1 per gallon to upgrade him to a temp 75g.

    40B Display- 5 Discus ranging from 3.5-5", 21 Neons, 15 Rummies, 2 dwarf puffers, 5 bolivian Rams, 6 corys and 2 albino plecos and live plants. Everyone looks healthy and are growing. I have a 150g waiting for a stand to be buit and soon my living room display.

    29g Discus grow out.

    After 50 years I do many things right, but still get things wrong

    That Soft-shell turtle ended up being illegal to own so I had to re-home. I have since moved and that tank is no more. As for the plants... for the most part yes! You can see some substrate coming through the rocks in the front. I currently have a 55g coming along after a long hiatus. Will post pics of follow me on IG @Lord_Dab_Vader
