About Me:
I've been keeping Tropical fish for 42 years with an occasional time off.

I kept a 65 gal Saltwater tank years ago and may try that again. I consider the fish themselves as my "wheelhouse", especially smaller species.

When I was Nine yrs old I saw a Zebra Danio and Silver Dollar in a neighbors 5 gal and was hooked. After keeping guppies and goldfish in bowls (yes I did this, it was the 60's though) the whole heater and filter seemed the way to go.
