A long ways down the long journey called life. Living every minute of it. Screwing up and fixing things. The usual.

Why do you like AC Tropical Fish:
For the people, here. You guys are awesome.
near saltwater and marshes, middle of nowhere
2.5 Gallon desktop "tank" with a standard betta.
20 gallon in-progress tank, intended for the betta, but subject to change.
Rest of Your Aquariums:
Family tank: Unoccupied observation tank, undergravel filter, temporarily dismantled, so they say. It has been home to hermit crabs, minnows, shrimp, several creek critters, and a toadfish.
How I got started with aquariums.:
As a little kid I had three goldfish that lived for at least six years (a Black Telescope, and what were probably either Fancies or Fantails). Then I had a 20-30 gal tropical tank with a great number of fish. Neither were under my direct care. Later, we had a saltwater tank with local water and various local critters over the years. When I went to college, I just had to have fish! I kept guppies, corys, and a betta.
Fish I have bred:
When I was a kid our livebearers had a batch of fry. The corys I kept in my last 10 gallon were the offspring of the previous residents of my previous 10g. Also I had a traumatizing incident with platys or mollies. Lots of them.
Why I like fish::
I like animals. I don't know why I like fish. I guess because I've always been around them, and I like having an aquarium. I am always looking for some new and unexpected form of life to take into my care, because I like watching how different creatures behave.
Do your research. Use Google, use the library, and compare multiple sources for the best answers. I say the same thing to dog owners: use your head. Your new pet is a living thing that needs space to roam, the right food to eat, and a clean, healthy environment.
Dogs and cats. I want a lizard.
