    hey there, i got into keeping fish about 2 years ago. it started with a 1.5 gallon tank and two baby catfish. About two weeks after purchasing that I quickly found a 55 gallon tank and set it up. The 55 gallon tank is all i used for about 1 and a half years. Most recently i bought a 110 gallon tank that ive been running for the past 3-5 months. the 55 is now sold to a friend and I keep my 110 and a 30 gallon running.I dont have the money or patience for saltwater so im sticking freshwater. my tank has 200 gallons of filter which is a fluval 404 and a magnum 350.

    im currently switching over to ciclids from basic freshwater with no theme or specific species. i had a thing for bichirs but ive somewhat lost intrest. Im trying my hand at a more advanced fish.

    i hope to have a 500 gallon tank in the next few years.
