Hello all,
I had an aquarium about 25+ years ago as a teen. I am turning 40 yrs young on the 20th and recently decided that I needed some aqua babies in my life so I found a used 55 gal w/ stand and hood. Stripped, cleaned and re-caulked it! Same time a friend of mine decided to give her Cichlids/Oscars up after 10 years (2nd and 3rd generations). So I did as much research as I could in such a short amount of time, visited a local shop called Optimum Aquarium, asked some follow up questions/advice and was thrilled that they were happy to help. Set her up, waited for her properly cycle, took chemical readings and voila! All have been safely relocated and are doing well so far fingers crossed (it's been 48 hrs)! There are 2 Lemon Drops (http://animal-world.com/encyclo/fresh/c ... yellow.php as I have read that a lot of ppl are not familiar and think that they have been dyed/I believe that is cruelty to animals and is punishable by death...or at least a serious ass beating with a side of water boarding), 2 Blue Haps and one big guy I have not been able to pin down exactly what he is along with a sucker fish! I look forward to sharing stories, pictures and reading all about your aqua babies. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! or just Have a Nice Day! (whatever floats your boat)
