hi all, ive been keeping fish since i was 9, im 52 now so quite a while, my prefered area is temperate, (coldwater) but i have a 5ftx2ftx18in tank with malawis and community fish in the living room and a 4ftx2ftx2ft in the kitchen, this has shubunkins, moors, fantails and whiteclouds in, i also have several other tanks in the greenhouse for summer breeding, the water goes green really quickly and the fry love it. ive kept and bred loads of different species, even native marine ones, these were a favourite of mine about 25 years ago, cant collect them anymore though which is a shame. im going to stop now because i could talk about fish for ever
