My real name is Rebecca. I have 4 cats, 4 rats, 13 aquariums, and a dog. Whew! I'm a junior high choir director (former band director), and I'm allergic to shellfish (even though I have shrimp in my aquariums).

How I got started with aquariums.:
I got a 10 gallon aquarium for my 11th birthday. I kept it and later a second going through high school. After graduating from college, I moved to Mississippi where I met my husband. He had a 29 gallon African Cichlid tank setup, and a 20 in storage. I convinced him to set it up, called my dad, and found out he still had my two 10 gallons in storage. I set them up after my next visit to Pensacola. That made four tanks. Now we are married and have 11. We couldn't help it!
Fish I have bred:
Zebra danios, white cloud mountain minnows, bettas, Neolamprologus Multifasciatus
Why I like fish::
I love fishkeeping, but can't explain why. Maybe it's the creative freedom involved in aquascaping and trying to figure out what will make the tank perfect.
