Talking Good Day

Hello Everyone!

I have been keeping fish for a long time now (11 years), and love it. I have a 10 Gallon tank with different tetras, and a couple of snails. The snails are new, and I quite like them :)

Attached are a few pics. Thanks for reading!

Welcome to TFK! Nice tank, I love those snails. I wish I could keep some but I'm sure my loaches would pester them to death. We are glad you have joined us.

Great looking tank. And a warmest welcome to the forum

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

Oh yes, most of them are a shoaling fish, and at one time I did have more of each, but I have since moved far from a fish store and couldnt replace the ones that die. they are old now. The red fin hangs out with the strawberrys, and the X-rays are happy together, but the poor platy is definatly lonley. He is actually a baby from the previous platy's hes all grown up now, and the previous generation is gone. He was a fighter though, he was the only one to grow up (I never did anything special for the fry, I couldnt keep that many fish).

Also, since moving I was worried about shipping fish as I never did it before but my zebra Snails were my first foray into the world of shipping! worked great!

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. You do have some nice tanks, and the snails are quite striking. Glad you joined us.
