My Aquariums

This is a page dedicated to my aquariums and all the fun stuff that comes along owning fish. I first got into the hobby about 2 years ago, although my dad always had fish when I was young, and Ive been in love with fish ever since I started watching youtube videos on ponds. I originally wanted to start a patio pond which expanded into actual aquariums as I studied breeds of fish and what fits best for me. My main tank is a 20 gal and currently stocked with 6 sunset platys, one albino bristlenose pleco, one clown pleco, and about 7 corydoras (mostly panda, but I recently got a false network as well as 2 bandits). My second tank is a quarantine/hospital tank that I use for sick fish or new ones that need to be treated before adding to the main tank in case of parasites or sickness spreading to other fish. If you are into the hobby you know that my main is over stocked, this is because I just recently adopted the corydoras and clown pleco and it is the only tank I have that will fit them. I plan on getting a 40 gal by the end of the year and switching substrate to sand so that it better suits the bottom dwellers. Ive had neon tetras and guppies as well, but my heart was stolen when I adopted my favorite fish, Waffles the albino bristlenose. Ever since then Ive been obsessed with plecos and I cannot wait to upgrade to provide more room for them as well as a mate for my male. More pictures are coming soon so check back for updates!

At this point I had aquarium fever pretty bad and I was desperate for more fish. Just anything to have more activity in it. So I made the mistake of adopting a pregnant sunset platy which ended up having two sets of babies, what a nightmare! pics coming soon!
