    Aquaman fish room and aquascaping journey

    What's up scape members, I have been keeping fish since childhood, as a young adult and for the past six years and counting. I don't see myself without a fish tank for the rest of my life.
    I was fortunate to find this site and along the way have met great people I consider friends Bongox3, Zensu, John7424 (and his wife), Marimoball, Kole85, aquamaniac, geektom, GBR, angel004 and too many more too list. I have been inspired by the work of many of you and have been given many things from this group, plants, fish, hardware and valuable advise to keep the frustrations down and the MTS going toping 12 fish tanks running. Hey I still have anubias nana petite Zensu who hooked me up with over 5 years ago. Without further ado I will document each of my fish tanks including my trip to Portugal last year to visit the Oceanário de Lisboa, Florestas Submersas by Takashi Amano", which was on my bucket list and it was to say the least a bit emotional for a 40+ year old.

    My instagram is aquaman074

    Here is preview of one of my Biotope tanks with wild fish from Colombia, specs 60" x 18" x 15"

    Picture of one male Dicrossus maculatus - Common Name: Spadetail Checkerboard Cichlid, I currently have 7 in this tank and they have laid eggs before.
