    Hello, my name is Logan. I'm new here but I'm a veteran to fish keeping. Well as much of a veteran as a 20 year old can be haha. Right now my collection is pretty light. I've got a 10 gallon with 1 small gold fish, 1 Blue Gill minnow that'll be on the way out when he grows a little bit (just a pet project) and 4 ghost shrimp. Also I just rescued a baby betta and put him in a 2.5 gallon tank I had with 1 ghost shrimp.

    If any family or friends need equipment or advice fish related they come to me. At one time I had a 28 gallon tank stocked with tropicals, a 10 gallon stocked with a few tropicals, another 10 gallon with 2 breeding pairs of Killifish (yes I bred them and I was maybe 13-14 years old), 5 gallon fry tank for the killifish, and three 2.5-3 gallon tanks with a betta in each. All but the 28 gallon were in my childhood bedroom haha. Well being a teenager, life got in the way and I slowly lost interest and eventually the fish all either died or were given away. Recently I've gotten the itch to revisit my hobby so I went out and bought the 5 ghosties I have, and then a few days later the betta. As the months go on, I'm sure I'll keep setting up new tanks and acquiring new fish. Anyways I had been researching different types of shrimp and betta info and this site was very helpful so I thought I'd jump into the forums and ask a few questions, perhaps shed some knowledge on some newbies.

    Before anyone scolds me for my 10 gallon with a gold fish, I get it, gold fish are supposed to have a minimum of...I think I read 25 gallons per fish. When I got the goldfish, I was in another house that didn't have a lot of room so the 10 gallon was all I had room for, and I had little to no experience with goldfish, as I had always dealt with tropicals, so that was the result. Luckily fish don't outgrow their space so he has stayed small (stunted I know) but he's healthy and happy.

    Any questions or advice are welcome. I'm happy to be here and I hope to be an active participant in the little community you've got going here.

    S0rry, but....misn0mer.
    stunted is neither happy n0r healthy, they gr0w at a sl0wer rate but can and pr0bably will 0utgr0w a tank that is t00 small t0 thrive in.

    stunting is m0re 0ften an effect 0f p00r water quality n0t living space deficiency. In healthy water parameters s0me larger breeds 0f g0ldfish keep gr0wing (even if at a sl0wer rate as they age) until they die. I have never seen pr00f, written 0r 0ral, that submits that fish are equipped with a mechanism t0 wilfully halt gr0wth.
