I'm an amateur but I love fish and frogs so I get on the net and look up information on how to care for them well. I've got two 60 gallon tanks and 7 Betta tanks ranging from 5 gallons down to 2.5 gallons. My entire dining room is set up as my fish room. It's the most peaceful place in my home.
I recently started a Rainbowfish aquarium. I've got a school of 11 in a 60 gallon planted tank. The tank is mixed with live and plastic plants. I've got water sprite, java fern and a few others. There are three small pieces of driftwood. I have 2 filters on it that do up to 60 gallons each. I use loose filter media. I've been watching Dustin's YouTube vids for tips on how to better manage my Rainbow tank.
The second 60 gallon tank is tall and holds 5 African-Clawed frogs and 2 medium sized Goldfish. Yes, it is over stocked. Water changes for both tanks are on Sundays at 25%. Water changes for Betta Place is as needed.
In addition to my love of fish I'm a stay at home artist. I paint abstract expressionism, figurative paintings as well as cubism. I hand sew dolls and dabble in clay just a little bit. All of this can be seen on my art website at

Thank you for visiting my fish channel,
I used to really enjoy doing different projects with the fish tanks. I was pleased to take in fish from others who needed assistance or to give a fish a home who needed one. But, the last year and a half has been rough, so my thoughts concerning my tanks has changed. I think I'd like to keep a set up without changing it and keep the tanks I have without taking on any projects. I will let the tanks change naturally of course, but I'm not going to attempt anything…Continue
I had a beautiful sail fin black molly in with my fish. That boy is big and beautiful but he's aggressive. I wanted so badly to keep him in there and cater to his likes and dislikes. I had to make a decision though, do I keep him in there because he's that big and beautiful or do I continue to…Continue
Something tells me this isn't just cute behavior. Why do my two goldies kiss on the lips several times a day? It's a 'quick' kiss then they move on but they do it several times a day. They're about 6 inches each in a 90 alone. They've got a good amount of java fern on driftwood. They know how to tear up on some duckweed, but I have a free supply of that from my friend. My main question is this, why the kissing?
I purchased some ceramic/slate tiles from Lowes and was wondering if they are safe to use in the aquarium. I have several sizes. None of these have ever been used on a floor. They are whole, no broken pieces. Are they safe to use in an aquarium? If one ends up broken is it safe to use?
