I'm new here

Hi. :) I've already explored the forum a little and given a bit of advice to others, but I thought I'd say hello. I'm a 36-year old woman and live in Texas. I've had small (disasterous) fishtanks on-and-off for 15 years, but last October I bought myself a 30 gallon long tank and got serious about the hobby.

My tank currently only houses 7 neon tetras, 2 hatchetfish, and a guppy. I used to have more of each, and a school of bandit cories, but a few months ago I was unable to take very good care of my tank... Right now my husband does water changes for me. I am waiting until I can take care of the tank myself before I get more fish.

Hi and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping.

I hope your difficulties are not health-related, but if they are, here's looking to a quick recovery.

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]

Hello Meenu,

Welcome to the forum.

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

Thanks, Byron. My difficulties were health-related, but I'm much better than I was 2 months ago. :)
