Qubie 40 tropical community
Constant challenges and learning of the hobby
Enjoyment of the hobby made me want to do it more and progress
Tropical because of the upkeep and the colours.
Marine, because of all the different challenges
Pond fish (Koi)
Up keep of water quality, change water, test waters regularly and most importantly filtration.
A large tank in built in the wall/between a living room and dining, Malawi cichlids.
The day I got the job at Maidenhead Aquatics, and i can turn my hobby and incorporate it with work.
Finding more about different species in the Marine section inc where they come from.
Fish compatibility in aquariums
Filtration device because that is key to having a stable and healthy aquarium.
Making sure the staff are knowledgeable and the customer does plenty of research.
Red Sea, seeing fish in their own habitat.
An elderly couple, came in brought a Hex tank 60, they was extremely polite and listened to my advice inattentively, and they have come back for products and more advice. I recognise them and them with me.
Having a job at Maidenhead Aquatics and a customer recognising me.
Temperate or small community
The most unique species that I have cared for so far would have to be the discus.
Due to not being with the company for very long I have not had to deal with many tank related issues, so far I would say that the problem I have faced so far would be problems with water quality and the tank not being right.
The marines have the most character due to how different they all look and how they all have different joibs in the tank.
Marine angel fish.
Always over filtrate instead of under filtrate.
Would be very interesting to see self maintaining fish tanks which are fully automatic
Buy more liner than is needed and make sure you have plenty of underlay.
I currently own 1 aquarium which is a qubie 40 which has small tropical community fish in it.
