    Hi everyone,

    First off all I am very happy to be part of this form and looking forward to sharing and gaining knowledge around my favorite hobby!!! A little about myself,,, I am based in Meyerton I work as an IT engineer, I use to be a fulltime musician, until I dedicated myself to my career in IT and being home to tend to my fisheeees :eek:. I started fishkeeping at a very young age, but started taking it seriously about four years ago… I have been fascinated with Angelfish, breeding and collecting them., If you guys buy angels from “Die Visdam” then you probably have some of my babies… I recently started practicing the art of NATURE AQUARIUM which will be my major interest.

    So let’s get chatting!!!
    8)

    I have a 300L planted tank
    4x 54w t5's
    CO2 inj

    2x60L tanks and a garage full of my old breeding aquariums.

    PS. I am currently busy breeding platinum Angelfish

    LOL! If you'd taken the pots out of the tank, you'd have got a much better response!! :p

    But, other than the pots, those are amazing angels! And, the plants look pretty healthy as well.

    HAHA Thanx Slagter!!!

    I’m a complete noob when it comes to aquascaping,, fish are my strong point in the hobby... I’m looking forward to build a proper land scape, I have only started feeding my plants properly this weekend... so if I can get them to grow properly the scaping is gonna be a LOAD of fun!! Im thinking of using riccia as a ground cover,,, but I gotta be careful of those hungry angels...

    I will post some pics of my Platinum spawn they should be swimming when I get home!!!
