Just to be clear, I am not new to fish keeping or fish forums.
Just call me J, make your life easier.
I have owned fish for a VERY long time, From when I was 3 to when I was six, I kept a little feeder goldfish (named Dorothy :) ) When she died, my mom (who has been keeping fish for a long time as well) got me my first freshwater 30gal for Christmas of second grade. Immidiatly I got into guppies, tetras, livebearers in general, african frogs, a few unsucessful ghost shrimp (due to an overactive yoyo loach) a few danios (didnt really like them) countless plecos (now into ottos, much smaller), I always have neon tetras, guppies and am trying out glofish. I once had a suicidal rainbow shark....
Then I got some mini goldfish  (like 1/2 inch) that live in a bowl untill I can seal the deal to get a pond.
I now have six tanks and one cereal bowl.
I have Siamese cats and one Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever named... Red.
I do rescue work and always have new animals in my house, to see the organizations I work for go to forsythpets.com and lanierpets.com
