I’m Julie, currently living in Duluth, transplant to GA from CA. I’m a stay at home crafty mom and homeschooler (2011 only child female). Jill suggested I join the group, so here I am!
My first fish tank happened because of a kickstarter as an offshoot of my plants habit. I backed ecoqube, which claimed to be a really easy nano tank that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance because it has above water plants that have roots in the back tank area to help filter the water. Low effort sounded good to me, so I was in.
5 tanks later, I still tend to err on the side of low maintenance small freshwater tanks with lots of plants, both above and below water.
I’d like to be better at aquascaping, but I really just toss a bunch of stuff in there and let darwin figure out what makes it.
I’ve had betta, celestial pearl danios, endler’s livebearers, pygmy cory catfish, a pea puffer, and way more shrimp and snails than I can count.
I currently have several tanks that are without critters, but still planted and running. I just got an empty 10 gallon that I’ll start cycling soon.
Nice to meet you all. 🙂
