PostSubject: G'Day from WA (Western Australia that is for everyone in the USA)   Sat Apr 07, 2012 1:29 am

Hi everyone, I've been keeping fish for a little over a year now and must say the bug has definitely bitten hard. I've convinced my fiance to let me have 2 display tanks (3' standard & 4' x 1.5' x 2') as well as a breeding setup of 4 tanks in the study. I started with Bettas but quickly moved to Bristlenose and South american Cichlid with Cherry Shrimp too.

I currently have 4 breeding pairs of Common BN with a sub adult male, One male and 3 female albino BNs that are a golden colour as well as a juvie. I also have an L168 female as the start of my L numbers and 6 corydoras (3 leopard, 3 peppered). I breed Red Cherry Shrimp regularly too. The Cichlids I keep are as follows, a pair of Blue Rams, 3 Pairs of Bolivian Butterflies, a pair of Apistogramma Agasizzi, 5 half grown (12-15cm) and one Juvie Satanoperca Leucosticta (green horse face) two juvie Firemouths. There are also two Male Betta Splendens (still here from when I started).

My Common BN and my Cherry Shrimp both breed regularly but I'm hoping to get my Albino BNs to take up the habit too and to be able to keep some of my Bolivian Butterfly fry alive longer than a couple of weeks Sad I think the Albinos are about to start soon, I'll just have to wait and let them grow a bit and figure out when they're ready I think.

Wow, that's long-winded Embarassed Anyway, hi everyone, I think the forum is a great source of info and I used it quite a bit when starting out for info and still look at it sometimes so thought I should join and share the love and answer anybody else's questions I can as well as keep asking a few too Very Happy

Wanting to get some more varieties of BNs (Longfins & Peppermints) as well as a few nice L-number colonies starting with the 168s and hopefully (in some time) being able to get some L46s Wink
