    Default The Addiction


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone!

    My name is Ben from California, USA.

    What turned out to be a "simple" goldfish gift to my daughter this past Christmas has turned into an addiction. I got the little guy well set up for now and now I want to learn everything there is to learn in order to keep a Freshwater "tropical" environment and hopefully moved to a saltwater ecosystem eventually.

    I spent the last 3 days on the Computer searching and searching, hungry for knowledge. The wife was quite mad I got to bed by 2 AM all 3 days....LOL!

    I know I am a newbie, I understand I know nothing about Aquariums and Ecosystems but I hope to learn along and also to pay it forward.

    Thanks and Happy Holidays !!

    I spent the first day (till 2AM) just looking for a Forum and found quite a few.
    I joined 2 of them which I thought were well designed and the format organized.

    I already got 3 responses here in less than 1 hour....

    I guess I am in the right place....

    Thanks and Happy Holidays !! PS. I prefer to use the words extreme passion rather than the usual -crazy, addiction. Just save some for the wife.

    Welcome to the right place Big B. -sorry thats what we call my son Benjanin. He is 19 -6'4" and size 15 shoes. I have to tread carefully I think. I'm new to this site and find it excellent. I'm a vet. of 42yrs. and there is no end to what I can learn here. Your daughter is a real kutty, I hope you keep her involved in the hobby. It is so rewarding in a lot of ways.Happy Holidays.
