Hi, my name is Aurora and I'm an alcoholic. (Wait no! wrong one!)

Hi, my name is Aurora. I like long walks in the beach, lazy weekend mornings on the couch.... Oh crap, wrong one again!! >.>

Hi, my name is Aurora and the above is my attempt to be funny.

Well, I am new to fishkeeping and I really hope I dont xxx you guys off with all the questions I'm sure I will have.

I started with a 1 gallon death trap with two oranda's, way too much substrate, plants and a filter. Needless to say, one of the fish died within a week.

I then got a 10 gallon and was suprised that all the junk from the 1 gallon fit quite nicely in it. Eventually I added a heater and dumpped in 10 cardinals and a pl*co. The pl*co died within 24 hours and one cardinal -vanished-.

Nasty looking brown alge took over the tank and I tossed in another pl*co and overnite, he/she had the place shiny and new. Another cardinal also vanished. Found a tail during the weekly vac / pwc.

And then! (lol) I was given a 25 gallon ( I think, it was one of those "waterhome 25" jobs). I didn't have a stand for it so it's on milkcrates that just -appeared- on my doorstep. >.> So far, so good. They haven't collapsed. YAY! I put in the oranda for a while then moved the rest in a few days ago. I plan on getting another oranda and putting them both in the 10 gallon.

The only concern I have about that, is I will no longer have him in there eating everything off the bottom. Meh, we'll see.

So, ya, thats my long-winded introduction....
