I've been keeping Tropical fish for 42 years with an occasional time off. When I was nine we found a 3 gal at a yard sale and found out it was to expensive to refurbish everything so my Mom may she RIP bought me a 5 gal kit. That was the beginning. 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.
I Coach football and baseball, also officiate high school sports.

I don't have a third aquarium right now I gave my other 50 gal to my nephew.
Rest of Your Aquariums:
I don't have more aquariums than that/those described above.
How I got started with aquariums.:
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.
Cardinal Tetras, Tetras in General, Barbs, Rasboras and Cory's
Fish I have bred:
