    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.

About Me:
im a 27 year old mother of 3. I have been married since 2003 to a US Marine. People often see me as hard-shelled with an independent attitude. Ive been through 2 preterm babies, 3 deployments, countless training exercises, KIAs, and a whole ton of other situations that have hardened me to hack anything life throws my way.
music is like candy, you have to throw out the rappers.
most all. None of those stupid gangster movies or scary movies.

How I got started with aquariums.:
i quit smoking and needed something to keep me calm, happy, and occupied.
Favorite fish:
Red Star Flower Horn Cichlid
Fish I have bred:
a guppy... but that was on accident! hahaha oops! my angels have bred but they are baby eaters
Why I like fish::
they're calming quiet and addictive. And I need something to be addicted to. I also feel fish bring about a bit of peace and tranqulity to my life. Something I definately need!
Best advice:
Research your heart out before you do anything! And just because the majority of people do something doesn't mean you cant stray from the pack. STAY AWAY FROM DYED FISH!!!
Other pets:
