Talking Hey All!

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 [3] (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

30 gal
3gal
8gal
5gal
1galbowl
1gal corner tank

I own freshwater fish. My favorites are Guppies, and I am getting back into platies again after a few years.

Hey J

Welcome to the forum. LOL on the cereal bowl :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

hi there!!! welcome to the forums!!!!

you wouldnt happen to own a large house with a bunch of animals like llamas and goats and dogs and stuff would ya?...because if you do I think I might know who you are!!

today I was driving and almost hit a dog that left from his front yard! I went into their property to tell them that I almost killed their dog and they seemed to have lots of pets!!(like if they did rescue work!!!) but no one was home except kids. I left a note and my number and the lady called me and she said that the dog was a new rescue.

so yeah I live in Georgia..it would be a crazy coincidence if you were that lady...but yeah!!!:)

Im glad that you joined our community!!! welcome to the tropical fish keeping forums!!!!!!

please watch and share with friends and family.

No, my dad would kill me if I brought home a llama.

What part do you live in? (Just name the region or something vague like that so no privacy issues)

Thanks! everyone is so nice here!!
