Smile "Hey there" from South Africa.


I started keeping fish when I was about 8 years old. I was walking through the shopping centre with my father and I saw the pet shop. My father said we could go in and have a look. Guess what caught my eye! A little Blood Red Siamese Fighting Fish. My father saw me taking an interest and said, "You know how I look after my Oscar and I think you're ready for your own fish". Well, I was over the moon! I left the pet shop with my little SFF and a little snail.

Since then I've gone through quite a few types of fish, ranging from cichlids to catfish. My chichlid tank was the worst. It seemed a chain of cannibalism started in that tank.

Well all I can say is I am very happy to know there are a lot of other people out there that love and enjoy their fish and I am privileged to own such a species.

Right, I now need help on a particular problem(to do with breeding) and would like to know where I can post a new thread about it. Thanks.

Fishy Regards,

Hello and welcome to the forum

There is a section for Fish Breeding where you can post your thread. Go to the main page, scroll down to Freshwater Fish & Aquariums, you'll see the Fish Breeding section under that.

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

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
