    DefaultHello from Vancouver Island

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to say hi. I am new to the whole thing, except for keeping a 10 gallon tank many years ago. I have been going through a huge learning curve, reading as much as I can...but there is so much to learn, I really had no idea how much! We have had some good advice and guidance already from local experienced people. We set up a 36 gallon bow-front tank in early November, and have live plants. There is a community of fish in there now; a dozen rasbora hengeli, a dwarf gourami, 5 panda cory catfish, 2 kuhli loaches, a bristle-nosed pleco and a guppy. A single Endler found it's way in when we bought our loaches, it was so small at the time we didn't know what it actually was until the colours came in. The tank is cycled and everyone seems to be doing well
    Looking forward to reading and learning more.
