So, I have an aquarium. Since moving into our new house, I really wanted to set one up. Growing up, I had a 10 gallon tank which was home to a variety of fish, mostly goldfish. More recently, I had a betta in a desktop bowl. My grandfather used to have a large collection, and I inherited a nice (unused) 20 gallon tank which was at the new house. So I set it up, planted it out, and went through several combinations of fish. Unfortunately, my betta (and some other fish for company) didn't survive the transfer from soft to hard water, and several species attempts later I think I have a stable biome. (I have guppies, platys, ghost shrimp, and an algae eater.)



This is my setup, several months later. Let's meet the fish! (I apologize in advance for potato quality of pics)

Maintaining and watching the tank is quite soothing for me as a hobby, and I love making up little stories for its inhabitants.
