Introduce myself

Hi, my name is Dominique, and I've been in charge of my aquarium for about 6 weeks now and I love it. 

This is my first official foray into fishkeeping.  I have long wanted to have a tank because the library I regularly visit has an enormous one (60 gallons = 227 liters), and I covet the beautiful display they have.  When I was small I had angelfish for a while but I don't really count that.

My tank:  10 gallon (38 liter) tank with 4 white cloud mountain minnows (WCMM).

I test the water and frequently make water changes. On this website I've been looking at the fish community creator tool here.  I also look at the articles which are super-helpful.  Thank you.

Welcome Dominique  :wave:

Looks like you've made a great start in the hobby  :)  I'm sure we'd all love to see a photo of your tank?

What would your dream aquarium look like?

Hi and many thanks for the friendly welcome by Little fish, Matt, and Fcmf on this network. 
I am continuing happily with my WCMM in my small tank and have both brown /gray variety and the gold (I have since added a few more).
My dream aquarium, Matt asked? Tee hee hee.  I was thinking neon tetras when I bought this mature tank from a college kid (near perfect water, beautifully balanced chemistry, java moss, and 4wcmm).  I've since changed my ambitions to finding a cold water fish that could live with my WCMM and ideally it would be small and blue.  Still looking.  THe near perfect water and balanced chem still are there, so are teh fish, but the java moss is failing I suspect because we have somewhat hard tap water 7.6 - 8.0 in my area.  Maybe brown from something else?

Am trying to post a picture of my tank as requested (thanks for the request!) but the website isn't cooperating w/my image file or vice versa.

Am enjoying reading a lot of good posts on this site and discovering what others care for and think about.
I visit an official aquarists' club on Monday next (Boston aquarium society = BAS) where I will join some people who assemble each month in Boston, MA to talk and play with fish.  Giving it a try.  More on this later!  Take care.

It's likely that your picture is too large... if you reduce the size of it and try again you may have more success!

I'm not sure any of us are fish club members on here...? Interested to hear how that goes...

As for blue cold water fish, I would suggest looking for a blue colour variant of the variatus platy, which its self is a colder water variant of the  'normal' platy.

Hi. Iím totally new to any fish forum. Iíve been keeping fish for a couple years and always find myself searching through answers on the forum so I figured I should finally take the plunge and join one.
I have a 500litre community tank with 3 Bala shark, 1 bristlenose plecostomus, 5 rainbows, few mollies, 2 moonlight and 2 golden gourami, 6 african dwarf frogs, 8 barbs. I did have some clown loach and cardinal tetra also but ich got them when I was on holiday 😢.
Also a 150litre for my 2 angels
and a 28 litre for my Betta.
So 3 tanks in total.

I was super lucky to get the 500litre Sue. My husband looked on Facebook and someone was selling it cheap because the night club it was in had closed down. We got the whole setup really cheap. I was soooo excited 🤗. Would never have been able to afford it otherwise.

Welcome to the forum  :wave:  Very envious of your tanks!  [Wow - a fishtank in a nightclub; poor fish must have been very stressed with all the noise, even indeed any survived very long as a consequence. Glad the tank is being put to better use in someone's home where its inhabitants can enjoy comparatively peaceful surroundings.  :D]

The tank was a marine tank in the club I think judging by the equipment that came with it and salt particles in the filter. It was empty of fish when I got it.  I restocked completely with fresh water fish. Used the old media in a new filter and the substrait from my old 150l with 100l of the water so cycled straight away. That Bala in the middle is 6 inches so my moonlight gourami on the left has surpassed the Bala in size by over an inch ....how crazy is that 😮. I didnít even think moonlight gourami could get that big. He is the tank boss, even over the plecostomus. Absolutely stunning fish, green/turquoise blue hue over his opal white body with bright orange feelers. ❤️
