besides oscar keeping I have many other animals - see below
I am a certified med aide working as a psych tech in a county hospital inpatient locked psych ward
I am once divorced with 2 tween-aged daughters now remarried. I am very liberal politically and spiritually I consider Deism to be closest to my position.
Eagles, Pink Floyd, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Heart, Elton John
Sci Fi, drama, horror (not the slasher variety)
Who I'd like to meet:
they're all dead
Kurt Vonnegut's fiction, Michael Kaku and S.J.Gould's science books.
Mostly MSNBC, The Daily Show and Colbert Report
Why do you like AC Tropical Fish:
I want to communicate with other fish nerds
55 gallon glass w/ Emperor HOB mechanical & bio-wheel, HOB Aquatech double waterfall mechanica, HOB MagnumHOT biological and Marineland canister all biological filter. Inhabiting the tank is a sole oscar named Beetlejuice.
29 gallon containing an american 3 toed box tortoise at least 25 years old named MrTurtle.
I don't have a third aquarium.
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.
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.
pay attention to the books you get and experienced others you ask. Water changes aren't optional.
3 toed box tortoise, blue front amazon parrot and 5 cats.
