My name is Marcel, I am a new member.  I was in the hobby long time ago in my teen years and now I am back. Currently have 7 tanks with wide variety of fish - African Cichlids, SA Cichlids, livebearers, plecos, corys, shrimp, snails, plants. Eventually, I would like to breed something commercially as well. 


I live in Alexandria (near Mount Vernon, Ft. Beloir). If there are any fish keepers near me, I would love to connect, so we could visit, share tips, tricks, etc.

Thank you,

Welcome to PVAS. Sounds like you have a lot of fish. Any pictures?

Have you spawned the blue gouramis? Looks like they are set up for spawning.

I had spawned gouramis in the past but this one is actually a quarantine tank.

Nice tanks, it was great seeing you the other day. Enjoyed viewing your tanks. Lets talk more about shrimp at the next meeting.

  • My sister and i have a 50 gallon open top tank that we had for about 10 years. When she had her twins we boxed it up, thinking we’d set it back up when they were a little older. Due to some health issues, we‘re Not going to be able to set it back up and we are thinking of selling or giving it away. The issue is that we are really attached to the tank and are looking for someone who is experienced in aquariums and who knows that it is high maintenance! I haven’t seen any for sale post on this site so I’m assuming that’s not allowed and I’m not trying to sell it on this site. I’m looking for suggestions on places to sell it. I’m not on Facebook so that’s not really an option
  • Hellooo. I‘m new to the club. Jae Mitchell... Lol. Just getting into the forum after like 3+ years!
  • I am new to aquarium tanks and have found a love for the wonderful creatures that live in them. I am hoping to learn and share this new this love with like minded people.
