    Life became absolutely insane...following my separation...moving an hour away...selling literally everything but my Midas and my Jaguar cichlid and a few aquariums I kind of took a break from the hobby. I kept my 2 fish going but that was about it...work also became stupid stressful but a few months ago I went back to a former place of employment to do clinical supervision over a private mental health firm so things are once again doing ok. Fish are much fewer these days than the 15 aquariums I was running at one time...no crazy exotics or weird morphs anymore. But the tanks are enjoyable and I am contemplating setting up another planted in the near future...possibly going with pressurized CO2.

    Right now here is what I am keeping:

    16" male F1 Jaguar
    10" female F2 Midas
    6" captive bred red oscar
    3 tinfoil barbs
    5 spotted silver dollars
    5" sun cat
    3 fancy goldfish(black moor, oranda, fantail)
    blood parrot cichlid
    halfmoon betta
    and a few small barbs here or there

    For aquariums I am just running 3x75G, 1x55G. Will be setting up a 47G column for some tiny fish and bettas.

    I am however getting more into reptiles...still just have 1 bearded dragon however will be adopting a 2nd bearded in the next few weeks as kind of a rescue project. Also contemplating some geckos...most likely crested in the next few months as well.

    How is everyone doing? Still see a few folks lingering around :)

    Ditto, welcome back! Good to hear things are settling down. Good luck with the new reptile additions, I hear mixed reviews on geckos with their personalities. Which variety were you interested in?

    Geeze, I was starting to feel like one of the last oldtimers around here, lol. I'm down to the 220 now, all the smaller tanks have been fishless for a few years. The 125 currently houses a large female boa constrictor, the rest of the tanks and a number of other enclosures house the other 60+ snakes I've collected or bred. No lizards, don't want to farm feeders for them, and snakes don't require UVB bulbs so they're simpler to maintain. What I find ironic is I would never have kept a single large fish in the 125...

    ^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks...^^^

    Nice to hear from you, MC. Sounds like you've been through the wringer.

    I am taking a semi-break from the hobby. Still have the 150g dentist's tank, and of course the bluegill pond. Thinking about trying a paludarium this spring with cool-water fish (paradise fish, gold barbs, loaches), fire-belly toads, and/or sagebrush lizards.

    Sounds like quite a collection. I love how you are "just" running three 75s and a 55. MTS, much?
