James is the founder and admin of the Hampshire Aquascaping and Fish online community.
This week we have a new group member sharing there hobby with us. James has been an aquarist for 4 years which has all led to the current set up which he describes as a Blackwater South American tank. The original plan for this aquarium was to create a biotope of the fishes natural home however during researching this, it became apparent his choice of fish were to far apart geographically for this to be achieved so he decided that a south american theme would be the better option.

As James aim was to create a south American theme, his choice of fish was no different.
- Rummy nose Tetra
- Neon Tetra
- Long Finned Bronze Corydoras
- Apistogramma Agassizzi Double Reds (pair)
When James was young, His dad was a fish keeper and James remembers a special fondness for his dads hatchet fish and khuli loaches. Even now, James still hold them in high regard. Another species James also finds the grumpy little faces of the bumblebee goby interesting and would not rule out having any of these fish in the future.
