Well, I'm 25 years old university student, from Budapest, the capital city of Hungary. That's the biggest city in my country at about 1 million people live there, and I live in the outskirts of the city. I have aquarium ages ago, but my passion and motivation were gone, that's why my parents sold it. Not to make them another headache... Last autumn, a friend of mine gave an old, dirty, ugly tank to me, and that was the beginning of something... I have spend a lot on this, and my girlfriend freaks out, if I say "Honey, I have seen something cool" She knows...
This layout, what is still in a try-out phase started 9th August, I hope this will last longer, and makes me much more happiness, than the previous one.
