My name is Clay and I am 20 years old. I work at a privately owned pet store in Oregon, Ohio and am working on finishing my Associate's Degree in Biology. I have been keeping fish tanks on my own for about 10 years and have 4 years of aquarium management schooling and approximately 3 years of professional experience regarding aquariums.

How I got started with aquariums.:
Ever since I was little I have always been fascinated by fish, but never had an aquarium until I was about ten. My first tank was a 10 gallon that I got from my grandpa. I stocked it with a couple of juvenile convicts that I got from a family in my neighborhood. My parents were completely naive when it came to fish tanks, so I was left to learn everything on my own.
Large, Aggressive South American Cichlids and Discus
Fish I have bred:
Convicts, Jaguars, Guppies, Discus, Angels
Why I like fish::
Fish are calm and generally peaceful animals that I can never learn enough about.
Always do research before acquiring new fish or setting up a tank, and always strive to learn as much as possible about the hobby.
Dogs, cats, ball python, brown anole, painted turtle
