Hi everyone,

Jeff from Philadelphia, USA.

Soo...a few months ago my fiancee and I moved into a new place. Wonderful place, basement level, lots of space. I decided to get a fish tank and got a 20 gallon an a few fish..I had grown up with small tanks....then I saw the oscars at the LFS and fell in love.

As I am sure some people here can relate to...I was hooked and began taking steps to be able to raise an oscar. The only problem is that I still have a Jack Dempsey and a plecco. I am working on re-homing them properly...however I think I have some time still.

Long story short: I now own a 75 gallon tank, a mainland C-160 and I am picking up a SunSun Hw304B 525GPH tomorrow night. I have ordered a few more heaters that are appropriate for the tank, however for now the 2 i have are keeping the water nice an proper.

My water quality is still doing very well, although that damn plecco can create an absurd amount of poop!!!

So, without further ado, here are some pictures to show my journey so far. The colors have began changing a bit on Herman (thats his name).

Hello and welcome to the site. Nice sand/gravel layout you have there. Herman may not keep that so organized!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
