Hello All

Hello Everyone!

My names Ben and it feels awkward to be introducing myself. hehe.

I have a tiny 10 gallon freshwater tank which currently houses quite a few fancy guppies that seem to refuse to eat all their young, and an even smaller 5 (I think) gallon tank housing a plant that my friend gave me after he imported it from Thailand, as well as 4 "teenage" female guppies.

Yes, I only have guppies.

I live in Taiwan, fish are quite cheap here, as are tanks. Which is a good thing because I'm not even of legal age to work here. So I live off pocket money. Yay... I've been taking care of fish for perhaps a year and a bit now. Starting off with 6 guppies, and now I have uncountable amounts.

Oh and my tank is live planted. I recently traded 3 of my red guppies (I have no idea what they are actually called) for one black/blue/brown male with my neighbour to add some more genes. And to my surprise, within 2 weeks, I saw little baby black fry. Though now I have 4 black/blue females.

Ive done all my own reasearch online and such to get my tanks working.

Anyway, If anyone has questions please ask. And If needed, I speak chinese aswell as a bit of japanese and french, but i highly doubt it would be of use on this forum xD but just encase ^_^.

And I apologize if I rambled or it doesn't make sense... my mind enjoys fragmenting my thoughts. xD

Je m'appelle Ben.
Call me Ben ^_^ or Baki.

Hello there Ben and welcome to the forum - it's good to have you here Sounds like a couple of nice tanks you have there - if you have any pictures of them you should share them in the Freshwater Pictures section, it would be great to see you tanks!
