Hello from Essex

Only joined this week so thought would pop a hello.! I'd been interested in joining an aquarium forum to help my knowledge pick up some valuable pointers along my journey.

Very inexperienced having only bought my daughter her first aquarium a few years ago (a Marina Mermaid tank - yes I went there for the 1st, what can i say she picked the pink one)

Anyhoo, it reignited a long standing want of an aquarium for me so i the opportunity and loved keeping our platy's, - i figured i couldn't be doing it all wrong as the originals gave birth to the older two we have now.

Have a 30l biorb now.. learning all the time. My best learns being when facing the problems; the first pea souper algae bloom for example. 

Nice to be here and look forward to the forum

Thanks all, yeah she is still interested it's been good for her.

Fish wise i have only kept platies as i am worried the 30l would be too small to introduce any other types - especially if they started having babies like the originals did so have kept around 3-4 max.

I do have two amano shrimp and a snail that have been merrily entertaining themselves.. i could watch the shrimp scavenge all day find so interesting
