Aloha from Honolulu

Hi Fish Forum! I'm a member over at Aquaria Central, too, and I decided to join up here because I recently bought my first betta, and this site seems to have a really active and friendly betta forum.
I've been keeping fish for about two years now, ever since I inherited a 10 gallon tank with two gouramis and two goldfish. After eventually figuring that I was doing everything wrong, I almost gave up, but by then I was interested in the hobby, so I stuck with it, and finally I'm just beginning to feel like I'm not a total newbie anymore.
My husband got interested in the fish, too, and now we have three tanks between the two of us. He's turned out to have a green thumb when it comes to planted tanks. I entered a bunch of details about our tanks in the section for individual aquariums.
Outside of the aquarium hobby, I'm in grad school for philosophy, currently working on my dissertation and teaching a summer logic course for undergrads (i.e., ruining their summer ).
I LOVE to procrastinate by browsing forums like this, so I'm looking forward to meeting everyone here!

20 gal - 1 betta, snails, shrimp, java moss and fern

Well, I'm not from Honolulu, although I've lived here since 2003.
Originally I'm from a tiny little town called Swainsboro, in southeastern Georgia.
But Honolulu is indeed beautiful and you should definitely visit it one day! I'll probably be moving back to the mainland in a year or so, and I know I'll miss it here.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I've actually been around here since the beginning of this forum in 2006, Leah. It's really a long time. And this forum is about to celebrate its third year anniversary around July 16 I think.
