Rest of Your Aquariums:
I don't have more aquariums than that/those described above.
How I got started with aquariums.:
I started with a Wal-mart 5 gallon kit which of course was worthless for real fish keeping and it all exploded from there. In my fevered heyday I had two 75s, two 55s, two 29s, two 10s, all at the same time.
Favorite fish:
Oscar
Fish I have bred:
I succeeded in breeding kribensis once but I generally haven't aimed at breeding anything.
Why I like fish::
I don't know in the slightest. Maybe because they don't shed on the couch or crap or puke on the floor.
Best advice:
pay attention to the books you get and experienced others you ask. Water changes aren't optional.
Other pets:
3 toed box tortoise, blue front amazon parrot and 5 cats.
