typeof:
Freshwater
Rest of Your Aquariums:
Too many to list right now and they are a work-in-progress.
How I got started with aquariums.:
Parents bought me a 10 gallon tank at 11 years old. I had an undergravel filter with an air pump and no hood/light. I had some Mollies and Platties which jumped out one by one as I was in school
Favorite fish:
All of them...who can choose one?
Fish I have bred:
Brisltenose Plecos, Albino Corys, Diamond Tetras, Endlers, Blue-Eyed Forktails (last 4 were all the fish's faults!)
Why I like fish::
Fish are such little characters and it is relaxing to watch them mess about the tank
Best advice:
CYCLE first, add more fish later. Use plants and get the biggest filter you can afford. Never too much filtration or research!
Other pets:
Two parakeets/budgies, 2 cats, and a 3-toed box turtle.
