Another Newbie

Hi All, This is my first post to the forum.
I was given a 75 gallon aquarium, a 10 gallon aquarium (both glass) and two Eclipse aquariums one is a three gallon and the other is a 5.
I have guppies in all of them. Everyone seems to be doing well. Most are in the 75 gallon, fry in the 10 gallon and some pretty males in my 5 gallon and whoever looks like she is about to give birth goes in the 3 gallon.
Probably pretty unorthodox but seems to be working for me. Have been doing this for about 4 months now.

My grand kids love to come over and watch the fish. Hubby wasn't into it at all when I started, but now I catch him watching them quite

I have learned a lot hear from this forum already just reading. Hopefully I will be able to contriubute as I learn more.

Hello and welcome to the forum

That's a lot of guppies. Post some pics. for us when you can.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Hello, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Glad you found us.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
