PostSubject: Hi from a new member in Surrey!   Wed Feb 16, 2011 11:13 pm

I have been keeping fish for almost 9 years now and am getting to really enjoy and love this hobby, i hope i can soon answer any questions from people who are newer to the hobby Very Happy

first of all I would like to give a little overview of what kind of fish i keep. I have a community tank with 1 male BN, 1 rusty L310 pleco and 1 sailfin pleco. I also have one huge catfish, which i think is a black upside-down catfish, I have 2 blue gouramis, 1 swordtail, 2 koi angelfish and 2 silver sharks, so as you can see, a rather mixed variety of fish.

I hope to upgrade to a 6 foot tank at some point, when we manage to get this new tank, i hope to use our old tank for breeding Bristlenoses. Firstly commons, then possibly albinos and if i am lucky pepps or starlight BNs Very Happy

Now to my BN. I hope to get a female when he gets a bit bigger and more mature so that he has a tankmate. He is almost 2 inches long and I have had him for about 5-6 months.

Lastly i really love this website, it holds a lot of information which i have used in the past, keep up the good work! cheers

I fully agree with you, they are beautiful fish, and the bristles add something that to me that makes them more appealing, dunno why cheers

Also, just out of interest, how do you become a V.I.P member or moderator?

You can find out about becoming a V.I.P. member HERE.

I think moderators are chosen by Curby, who runs the site.
