    I started out a long while ago with freshwater tanks, its gone through many changes, and due to a big mistake and a vacation i went on, all but 2 fish (1 pleco and 1 honduras flame point cichlid, who i called killer) were killed, by, yup you geussed it, killer, he killed 5 barbs, 2 jack dempseys, 1 honduras flame point, and 3 tetras...

    So this is what it is now, with me spending a lot of my time and money on my salt water tank, i have neglected getting new inhabitants for this tank, i only have 1 pleco, 1 red tailed shark, and 4 green tiger barbs..but i think the setup is nice :) i and going to be moving real soon, and shortly after moving im gonna go buy some bala sharks and some cichlids..have been contemplating plants for a long time, but i decided to go with a reef tank instead lol!
    hope you like

    thats a nice tank you got your self
    almost all of us started out with fresh water and it can be fun if we all had the room we could do both and have the best of both worlds. right now the closest thing i got is my beta (i need to get a bigger house)
