Greetings from San Diego!

Hmmmm....what can I say about myself? Well, I'm a Navy wife and a mother to 2 young boys. I'm originally from Arizona, but moved to San Diego to be with my husband. I've always had a passion for fish since I was a little girl (maybe because I'm a Pisces) but I just recently got back into the hobby. I'm currently looking into breeding a few different species of fish for fun and to teach my kids about caring for life and biology. I guess that's about it for now. If you have any other questions feel free to ask! I'm always up for a chat about my "shishies" as my 3 year old calls them! lol

Hi Chelsea, welcome to TFK! Do you have currently have a tank set up or just getting started? How great that you are doing this for your kids. My mother and the 10gl swordtail tank she got me when I was 8 was where it all began for me!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I have a 55 gallon with a fire eel. A 20 gallon community tank with mollies, ghost shrimp, and American flagfish. A 10 gallon with a betta. A 10 gallon with molly fry, corydoras, and bumblebee gobies (temp home for the bumblebees while another tank cycles). A 20 gallon with a convict pair and their 3 week old fry. A 29 and 20 gallon currently cycling, and a few more small tanks planned in the next week or so. :)

Sorry about the periods after each tank. It just seemed to be the easiest way to separate my tanks. :)
