I feel ya, I lost my mom when I was in my early 20s, and she gave me $100 to start this business. I like to think my success is because of her unflagging belief that I could do anything I put my mind to.

The love of fish keeping passing on from Mother to daughter. The way you guide and teach her but let her be creative and do her own thing is beautiful to watch! Loved it!

You can use super glue to glue some of the wood to the rocks so they won't float :)

Thanks. I have a Fluval and an Aqueon kit and I had to upgrade the lights on both tanks. Seems the lights they came with assume you'll be using plastic plants.

Hey awesome setup, I went and purchased a twig catfish and a lot of people are telling me it can be difficult, any main reasons for this, I've got him or her in a heavily planted 55 gallon with bloodfin tetras and rainbows. I also have glass catfish, I expect it to eat what I feed my Corey cats and otocinclus. Mainly algae pellets and every now and then a blanched zucchini. ;-)

+Rachel O'leary thank you for the info. Love all the information you have on the hobby. Thanks :-)
Rachel O'leary
Rachel O'leary - 5 years ago
+Parker Alwan twig cats aren't difficult, they are pretty awesome, but dumb as rocks. As long as the tank is mature, they should do fine.

you should do a video for people who want to start their own planted tank for the first time. Because i want to make my own just have a hard time finding a good video that can show me the beginning steps to start my own planted tank a specially a low-tech planted tank.

So glad my mom got me into this hobby

I have been doing this since i was 11 (i'm 14 now) and I've kept a big spectrum of fish ranging from tetra's and angels to snakeheads and L numbers. I'm in love with this hobby

That is how it goes isn´t it My grandfather gave me the bug. From before i can remember he lived a few doors down the street. i never went to daycare or whatever whenever my mom was out i was with the old man before i could even walk he had no fishroom the entire place was filled with tanks and stuff. Then my fith birthday came and at his hand i walked into our local LFS he got my very first tank to the eternal dismay of my mom a 96 Ltr one. I still have and run to this day That is 33 years ago. I miss that man dearly.
Rachel O'leary
Rachel O'leary - 5 years ago
+BolivianFishKeeper My kids go to a lot of clubs and events with me, but it took her being really involved at one of them for the bug to bite her. I cannot stress enough to get kids involved in the hobby.

Are nano tanks more difficult to maintain because of the small size? I thought the pH, nitrate and such can fluctuate very easily. Is regular super glue fish safe? Probably a dumb question lol
Rachel O'leary
Rachel O'leary - 5 years ago
Super glue is totally fish and invertebrate safe. smaller tanks are more difficult because of the small volume/dilution
colinbarsby
colinbarsby - 5 years ago
These Nano tanks are one of the Huge improvements in the hobby. They move people up from unsustainable bowls, and they are able to provide multiple species tanks for fish that otherwise struggle to cope in large community aquariums.
