Hi all,
Just a quick note to introduce myself here.

I'm Luke, I live in Newcastle Upon Tyne but I'm originally from the Lake District.
I have recently rekindled my love for aquariums as I've just moved into a new flat.


I currently have two tropical tanks, one desktop Betta tank and another larger community tank.

I look forward to hearing from you all and learning as much as possible!

If anyone has any questions just shoot them across.

L :fish:

There's quite the story behind Charlie!

He's actually a rescue, he used to live with my old neighbour who kept him in a Mason jar. Lord knows how long he lived like that for.
Anyway, my neighbour was moving out and I saw this Mason jar on the pile of things to be thrown out with the trash. I saw movement in the jar and asked him what it was. He then told me he got the fish because he was told they were fighters and were low enough maintenance to keep in a jar.
I immediately said I would take him off his hands, offered to buy him but he said he was just gonna chuck him anyway.

So that's the story of how I acquired Charlie!

Thank you Boundava!
I don't know why the name came to be but it's sort of stuck with him now! He seems to be settling in just fine into the new tank. Plenty more room and a heater!

I'm sure Charlie is so much happier now. I'm betting he'll have quite the personality and will blossom under your care. I am glad you were able to rescue him from your #*$@%! neighbor.
