- How I got started with aquariums.:
- I first got an aquarium thirty plus years ago. It was a 10 gallon that I put two small dempseys in, not realizing what I had for fish, but as time went on and they grew and developed into a beautiful breeding pair, I found I had fallen in love with fish. From there the hobby grew. I had numerous aquariums while living in Alaska. I love the water and find watching fish glide through the water relaxing. I could not bring my large tanks with me when relocating.
- Favorite fish:
- Love cichlids
- Fish I have bred:
- Dempsy, various tropical, Angel fish, convicts
- Why I like fish::
- Love to watch and enjoy building relationships with them. They all have interesting personalities.
- Best advice:
- Know what your fish need and keep a clean tank. You can never have too much filtration and always do water exchanges.
- Other pets:
1 oscar, 1 jag, 1 dempsey, 1 flowerhorn, 1 firemouth, 1 black convict, 1 marble convict, 2 large mystery snails, 2nd tank pair of dempseys, 3rd tank pair of marble convicts.
