Rest of Your Aquariums:
Big dreams. Small floor-space.
How I got started with aquariums.:
From early childhood, I've been fascinated by the "other world" going on beneath the water, unseen and mysterious.
I never had a pond or stream to play in regularly, so as soon as I was able I started creating my own.
Other than a few breaks due to living circumstances, I've never looked back.
In aquariums: Pearl gouramis. To catch: Yellowstone cutthroat. To eat: Bluegills.
Fish I have bred:
Goldfish, turquoise rainbows, firemouths, pearl gourmis. Only the goldfish survived to adulthood...the others were good fish food.
Why I like fish::
Emergency food supply.
Be open to everything and learn, learn, learn...
Small hunter cat. Large special needs cat. Resident populations of birds, deer, dustbunnies.
Do not rejoice over me yet, o my enemy, for even if I fall, I will rise again. Even when I dwell in darkness, the Lord will be my light. Micah 7:8
