  1. Hi from Brooks

    Hi All I'm a relative beginner to keeping fish. I set up a small 5 gallon Betta tank a few months ago and enjoyed it. Shortly after that my dad gave me his old 36 Gallon bow front that I am just now starting to stock. The cave structure I made myself from some natural slate tiles. So far I've stocked with a few Cherry Barbs and just added some Panda Corys. I'm looking forward to finishing stocking the tank over the next while.
  2. Beginner In Yyc

    Hello everyone. I found this site from another local forum. I have a Christmas bonus coming up and I've been wanting to get an aquarium for a while. This seems like a great resource and I can't wait to get up and running and post a shot or two. For a beginner, there is just a ton of information to sort through. I'm thinking 10 gallon to start, some more odd looking fish, a scull or something funky on the bottom, no real plants. Freshwater is easier right? Would it be best for me to go into a place like Big Al's and just have them fill my shopping cart for me? :eh:
  3. Hello! I've been meaning to post pics of my latest adventure but I'm getting married soon so time has been short! I had a 40gal tank with some swords, grass and other plants and played around with DIY CO2 and had some great success so I wanted to take things to the next level. After looking online at some of the amazing aquascapes out there I got really excited and wanted to give it a go. I tried to find some inspiration that I thought would be easy to model my tank after and found 2 that I loved. I left the decision up to the availability of hardscape materials. Thanks to this forum and the advice of some members I found the perfect stone in a landscape company in Edmonton. Also reading the article for doing a DSM planted tank I got excited and I figured I'd try my hand at that as well It has been just over a month of growth but the tank it really starting to take off and I'm excited to see what the next month holds. Here is a shot of just the hardscape I'm getting a little worried as the HC is growing faster then everything else and I don't want to trim until it's flooded but it's starting to get out of hand haha Here is some photo's of the HC comparing the 1st day it was planted and 30 days of growth. I'll post more later
