When someone says "So tell me about yourself..."
I never know what to say... but I'll give it a shot.
I live in Powhatan VA, about 40 minutes southwest of Richmond.
I got started with fish about two years ago, when I moved in with the hubby. I guess it was a compromise that turned into an addiction!
I love animals of all shapes and sizes, fur, feathers, or scales. Well, my husband grew up in a house full of cats, birds, dogs, and random rescued wild animals. So when I went to him about aquiring some pets of our own, he was't exactly thrilled. I convinced him we needed a dog, to keep a watchful eye; we got a cat, because I simply refuse to live without one; and we purchased a 20 gallon tank, and started a freshwater tropical community tank. These days, we sit in the living room at night and he watches tv, and I watch my fish.
We've upgraded to a 60 gallon new world cichlid tank in the living room; I have our 20 gallon (long) tank in my hobby room, with just some plants in it; and we have a 2 gallon betta setup in the kitchen.

Nice to have you! I find myself staring at my fish while I'm watching TV with the hubby. Sometimes he'll pause it and be like "what just happened in the show?" And I'll try and guess, but I was too distracted by the fish to notice, so he'll sigh and rewind it.~Manna

Welcome to the community
^_^ I watch TV with my fish, and occasionally I ask their opinions on the program. They fin their answers back at me
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act
