My name is Alex. Smex is a nickname. I'm from South Jersey and I've had my first tank since I moved into my house at college 5 months ago. It is a 2gal I'd say..vintage looking.. found it in the basement and put two guppies and some snails in it. Now I have a 40gal south african cichlid tank, and a 10gal ghost shrimp tank which I'm currently trying to breed (really want some other species of shrimp). I'm going to put pictures up soon!
I'm very excited to learn from all the experienced aquarists here in the Aquatic Community. Since I have little experience, I'll be sure to cite any advise I give with the research. I hope to become a credible source here but I'm sure there is a lot of still need to learn. Thanks for reading! and uh questions are welcome please!

Hi Smex, are your two guppies male and female?
Either way, welcome to the board!

I haven't sexed them yet. My friends think that the two are in love. The two guppies swim after each other and swim around in circles together... I honestly think they are both male, yet they aren't trying to kill each other. They have a weird relationship - They seem happy... despite living with cichlids.

You came to the right place to learn, welcome to the AC. I've learned so much over the years.
Shrimp and snail junkie... What can I say, I like the little things in life.
