    Go ahead and remove the account. There seems to be no other solution since the forum software won't actually send a password recovery email. Thanks.

Aquarium 1:
My main aquarium is a 30g (long) fresh water setup. I have (2) Black Tetras (the first fish in the tank - sex unknown); (4) Pinapple Swordtails (2 of each sex); (2) Zebra Danios (sex unknown) One male Blue Gourami (his mate died about 2 months ago); and one Browninsh-Black Pleco (about 6", sex unkno
Aquarium 2:
My second tank is a 10g (reg) fresh water setup with only a Red Cap Oranda. It used to have a Black Moor, but he died. I think that happended because he would swim up and let me hand feed him, and touch him: and I think I may have made him sick.
Aquarium 3:
I don't have a third aquarium.
typeof:
Freshwater
Rest of Your Aquariums:
I don't have more aquariums than that/those described above.
How I got started with aquariums.:
I started when I was a little boy. My father got me into the hobby. I think he used to have Guppies (fancy); but it is hard to remember.
Favorite fish:
Hard to say, but probably Oscars & Angles
Fish I have bred:
Without trying, I have had Black Mollys; Platys & Swordtails bread in my tanks over the years. I am not smart enough to know what I did right to make this happen...at least not yet.
Why I like fish::
They are so calming to my soul. I find peace in watching them swim around. I especially love the fact of taking care of another creature, and tending to all of their needs.
Best advice:
KEEP IT REAL...Don't use plastic plants and that other "garbage" in your tank. Keep a real ecosystem, and you will be wonderfully supprised and get a sense of accomplishment when you succeed. Also, try to give your business to your local "mom & pop" shops as apposed to the giant mega pet stores...at least whenever possible.
Other pets:
None right now..but I have had Birds, Hamsters (breed them); dogs and a cat. Would like to have a d
