    Hi all,

    I am from PE; and do some scuba diving. I have two tanks currently. One is about 1.8 m in length (I think), the other is about 1m. I'll post more details once I get into this forum stuff.

    My 1.8m tank has not yet been filled with water. So thats the next goal. Get the leak fixed and fill it.
    I'd like to do my first well-planted tank with nice peaceful community loving freshwater fish, who won't eat each other nor dig up the plants. Not particularly concerned about breeding anything in the tank.

    The other tank will be used for quarantining and perhaps growing plants. We'll see.

    Thats all for now.
    Thanks
    Pauline :)

    Welcome APSA..... :)

    well you cant go wrong with tetra's
    1. most of them shoal quite nicely
    2.they wont eat each other
    3. they stay quite small 5cm average so you can get loads
    4.they very peaceful non aggressive
    5. very hard to breed so i think that answers you given criteria!

    hope this helps!

    Thank you, excellent, I'll keep a note of that. I like the idea of some nice shoals. :)

    Thanks all for the welcome.

    Hi Pauline

    Welcome. I am also in PE so if you want any cuttings or anything like that send me a message and we can arrange something

    regards
    Brenton

    PS: I know a Pauline that works at Aspen and used to keep fish - is this perhaps you?
