PostSubject: Hello, fishy fellows!   Fri Sep 21, 2012 1:31 am

I'm just as new to the club as I am to USF, but I like what I've seen of both so far. This seems like another great way to get involved on campus, even more so than most of the other clubs I'm in.
In my family and among my friends, I'm considered a little odd for this hobby that I'm so enthusiastic about. Along with the greater than average knowledge of fish I have, I often spend good deals of my time on weekends browsing different pet stores and maintaining my tank.

I started with a 5 gal hex tank about two years ago, then transferred all of my fish to a ten about a year ago, and just last week transferred them to a 20g tank. At this rate I should be in the size league of most of you in a few years :p.

At the moment my tank is a lightly planted, black sand, semi-aggressive community. I own one very outspoken rainbow shark, two albino rosy barbs, two tiger barbs, a ropefish, and a common pleco (and various assorted snails).
I'm always open to suggestions for new fish and advice. currently looking to increase the population of my 20 and have no idea haha.
hopefully this will be the start of something great, thanks for reading.


The ten was getting a bit cramped

Sweet looking set up! Glad to have you on here and with the club!


As for adding more fish to the tank, post up a separate thread under the fish section, I'm sure we can come up with a few ideas. Also the TBAS auction will have TONS of fish and live plants!

Welcome, Fahd! Welcome!

We're so glad to have so here! LOVE the pics of your set-up! Very Happy What types of plants are you growing?

And, like Nicholas said, post in the "fish" section, and we'll give you a hand. Wink

Also, consider entering a pic in the PotM for this month. That pic of your rainbow shark would work. Smile

Welcome to the club Fahd. I'm curious what plants you're using as well. I hope you'll post some more pictures and descriptions in a showcase thread!

Thanks for all of your support Very Happy
To be completely honest, I have absolutely no idea what the name of the plant is. I did at some point, but that was a year ago. Ever since I've been trimming and maintaining the same two plants.
It might be some form of anubias, but not sure.
I'll def take more pics with a better camera and post them on other threads when I get a chance.
