Talking Hi from Pittsburgh

I have had fish since I was about 8 and am still loving it. I have many been into South American Chiclids like Jack Dempseys, Oscars, and my favorite, Electric Blue Jack Dempseys. I'm 15 now and also have some reptiles. I will post some picture of some of my fish.

I live right outside Pittsburgh and lucky have a very nice Fish Store right near my house! Its called Wet Pets and the specialize in saltwater and freshwater fish and plants/corals. (WetPetsandFriends.com). This is where I get all of my fish, tanks, ect.

Thank you for reading and I hope to exchange tips and tricks about fish and plants with all of you.

Welcome to TFK!

I'm not sure how far you are from it, but Elmer's Aquarium in Monroeville is a pretty nice store, too.

Hi, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

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]
