Hello my names Anika I'm twenty years old, currently i reside in Port Coquitlam but undergoing a move back to North Vancouver. I have started up my first freshwater community tank and believe that this will turn into a lifelong hobby and career. Eventually i would love an octopus and some jelly fish. Also marine biology highly intrigues me along with the hours i have spent at the BC Aquarium just staring through the glass. I have a twenty-five gallon running with black sand natural substrate and four species of live plants. As for the fish i just lost my first one today sadly, he was a male dwarf rainbow fish.
Whats left:

2 sparkling(croaking) gouramis
3 honey dwarf gouramis
4 rainbow dwarf fish
5 galaxy rasboras
3 corydoras(1 albino, 2 peppered)
2 ottocinclus catfish


This tank has been going for about two and a half monthes.
I also have a half moon male beta in a seperate environment also containing live plants.

Yes I love the catfish, although I did buy the last three glass catfish from my store, one died so the two became very aggressive whilst waiting for my next three to join them. Those two now reside in my boyfriends fathers fifty-five gallon, heavily planted and are schooling even with the two. Taken from my tank I replaced them with the dwarf rainbows and now when i upgrade my tank I will be looking into the thread fin rainbows, magnificent specimens.
