Rest of Your Aquariums:
I don't have more aquariums than that/those described above.
How I got started with aquariums.:
I also have full setups for Culturing Live Brine Shrimp and Daphnia, a well as a breeding setup for Mollies and Guppies.
Favorite fish:
I would have to say Tangs are my favorite type of fish, however they are defintley very fragile
Fish I have bred:
Mollies, Guppies, and Clowns
Why I like fish::
I am not sure exactly WHY, all I know is I have always loved them.. maybe it is how relaxing it is to just sit and watch them swim around..
Best advice:
NEVER cut corners due to either being impatient, or cheap... it will end up costing you way more in the end... more money, but more importantly, your fishes life. Take it slow, and research EVERYTHING before doing/buying ANYTHING
Other pets:
I also have 2 snakes, 3 Turtles, 2 Frogs, and a whole bunch of newts & salamanders

1:00PM Success!
So I have officially reached the target salinity of 1.025 and the little guys are all doing great! Absolutely no signs of distress whatsoever! I am thrilled!

April 11, 2014 Day 3
8 Mollies, 8 Guppies All under 1 month old.
9:00AM Salinity 1.020
I observed the fish and all 16 fish are still seeming unaffected by the changes. Still eating and swimming well.
Checked tank parameters and all levels are doing ok.
Restarted the drip (about 6 drips per minute) of water that is a 1.030 salinity
I will recheck around 12:00PM but I am hoping today is the day they will reach my target salinity of 1.025
Will check

8 Mollies, 8 Guppies All under 1 month old.
Starting Salinity 1.002 (so basically nothing, it was just from the saltwater added when I would feed the live brine shrimp)
Equipment: 1 Gallon Critter Keeper, Nano Heater, Small Air Driven Filter with an attached prefilter (otherwise your fry will end up in the filter), Refractometer, Digital Thermometer with probe, and some Omega One Ocean Salt Mix.

Added the 1.002 Salinity water (only filled halfway
