Rest of Your Aquariums:
I don't have more aquariums than that/those described above.
How I got started with aquariums.:
My dad kept a fish tank when I was a kid and I got interested and started keeping my own
Fish I have bred:
Various Mbuna species - reared to adulthood (unassisted), Lamprologus Ocellatus Gold - eggs, fry - then they got eaten by tankmates, Silver and Black Mollies - reared to adulthood (assisted), Various Platies - reared to adulthood (assisted), Guppies - reared to adulthood (unassisted), Zebra Danios - eggs laid in a marble set-up, fry hatched - then my heater broke and they died (rookie error), Peppered Corydoras - currently rearing
Why I like fish::
They're interesting and restful to watch and care for.
Best advice:
Research before buying anything! With the internet there's no excuse to be ignorant.
