What's up, guys and gals. I originally came to ask about my crayfish, as my first post shows, but I see there's a lot of information here, and hopefully some cool people, so I decided to introduce myself.
I guess I've had a fishtank around me my whole life. As a young un' my father kept a 10 gallon tank with an assortment of Wal-Mart fish, but he was the one who mostly kept up with it. I did have an interest in it enough to coax him into getting a fiddler crab, and I built a staircase out of legos for it to get to air.
But now I'm older and have my own place, and I decided about a year ago to start up a tank of my own. I wanted to go saltwater but my woman convinced me that the start-up and up-keep might be too much for a first go-around so we settled on freshwater. We got a 55 gallon tank from Petsmart as a gift and purchased an under tank pump/filter system as was recommended by her father. We kind of went overboard on buying fish, I guess, and now we have 25 or so. They've grown considerably.
Here's my tank: First Tank - 55 gallon Freshwater fish tank
