My name is Ellen, and I'm a freshman/sophomore. I am majoring in Computer Science. I chose this major because I took a class in programming last year - AP Computer Science - and I very much enjoyed it. I like being able to make something from nothing, without needing any materials or tools that are difficult to use or aquire. I can just open my IDE and start writing whenever I feel like it, and there's no clea-up required when I'm done.
My favorite hobby is fishkeeping. I have several aquaria, although while I'm at college, I have downgraded to just one. I keep tropical freshwater fish and plants, and for a while I was running a system that was primarily a South American biotope, with the exception of a couple of plant species. Currently, as all of my stock have been merged into just one tank, it is a mix of South-East Asian and South American species. My aquarium is a 20L with two external power filters and a sand substrate. Species include platies; cardinal, rummynose, serpae, and glowlight tetras; kuhli loaches; and nerite and assassin snails. My plants are Anubias nana, Anubias var 'Coffeefolia', Amazon Sword Plants (Echinodorus sp.) and dwarf Amazon swords (E. tenellus), Rotala indica, Cryptocoryne lutea and Cryptocoryne wenditii, Java fern and Java moss, and Salvia. I used to have a mated pair of German Blue Rams, a type of South American cichlid, which I was attempting to breed.
