About 12-15 years back now I sold my tank. We were moving into a rental and I couldn't easily accommodate my 8 by 2 by 2.
About 8 weeks ago, the wife decided to purchase a community tank and started to keep fish again. After a few bum steers from pet shops, including one where I successfully argued their advice was bogus, I became involved. I have been fairly busy with a few issues at work, and consequently the wife was trying not to drag me in to her issues.
Anyway, after a bit of thought, I have decided I would like to set up a new tank. Only a small Nano tank this time and am looking to get some brichardi. Always been partial to them, but didn't keep them previously as I didn't think they would mix with the old tanks population well.
For work I am a water treatment and bug specialist in a commercial environmental world. Whilst I am restricted in details I can release due to NDA's, I am often primary technical on public bathing facilities with microbial issues.
The tank I have bought is about 1/5 filter ... funny that.
Anyway, I probably wont be a regular here but if there is a way I may be able to assist please ask?
PS: Even translation of ion specific ion tests to KH and GH is a bit of light work I can help with
