I grew up with my parents keeping tropical fish, (they have been keeping them since before I was born - and used to compete) and my brother started a few years ago, so I have some good resources...always looking for more information though!!
I have a 10 gallon that I started on March 17th. It's mostly Danios, but there are a few small cats, guppies and a dwarf guarami as well. (i am also a photographer, so i want to try and get some good pictures to post - but Danios are quite a challenge to photograph!!!)
I even keep a notebook with information I learn, test results, when and where I buy my fish, and anything notable. I find that is the best way with something I am pretty new at - and again it helps that I can call, text or even coherse into coming over my family to check out my tank.
I am finding that keeping these fish is addicting. Both my fiance and myself sit infront of the tank just watching the fish...I find this more enjoyable than TV.
I am hoping to be able to find some more fishkeepers and maybe pick your brains too!Or just chat about fish!
Welcome to the fourm Suzi !My name is Savannah and I also have a 10 gallon tank with a dwarf gourami,killifish and soon getting some sparkling gouramis.That is realy cool that you are going to photograph your fish and I look foward to seeing the pictures. I hope you enjoy the fourm and if your looking for another fourm to post on I also am on theplantedtank.net (If your interested I would suggest that you type it on google first becaues for some reason It never works for me on my regular seach bar)
I got into fish also, and I love photography!
My parents are really into fish also, but they've only ever had salt water tanks. I first got a 1g, then 3g, next 20, now 55gs. (: I love it so much and I could probably write a book the size of a dictionary on everything I've learned.
Savannah; Killifish? I love them! Sadly, no one in my area sells them, and I'm too paranoid to get them shipped.
