Hi, Everyone --
I'm new here and fairly new to keeping fish -- at least to keeping them "well".
When I was a kid (long, long ago!), I kept two goldfish in a bowl for many years. We didn't know better then. Then in the 90's, my husband and I kept a few tanks but really didn't know a lot about fish. When we bought our farm in 1998, we gave the fish and tanks away before we moved.
This past summer, we wanted a relaxing hobby and we both enjoy taking care of animals. We got a small aquarium and, well, ... I'm sure many of you can relate to how that one small aquarium grew and multiplied.
Our other "big" hobby is one we've been doing longer than fish. We raise, show and drive (cart and harness) miniature horses. We've been doing that since 1999 and had riding horses longer -- but it's the minis that are our passion. We have a few foals each year and some National champions w/in our little herd.
I'm happy to have found this place and look forward to learning from the members and helping out with advice where I can (but I'm pretty new and learning still).
