joined a few years back but now am a newbie again =)

hi everyone again.i joined this group a few years back and was and active member but i had to stop due to my new buisness.it's been nearly 2 years now.i received an e-mail from the forum and i suddenly found myself here again.i love the new upgrades they have made here.especially the aquarium log.

i have been keeping fish since i was five.started with the normal gold fish in a 2 feet tank.at twelve i kept discus in a 3 feet tank.dont even know how many gallons a 3 feet by 1 and a half feet tank is so forgive me.after that i went over the top with my hobby at the age of 17 when i was still living with my mum.i kept 25 bettas of all different species one of which was a double crown tail betta flown in from indonesia.he was a betta champion at the state competition.his offspring came out champion at the largest lfs we have here.he was only and inch and a half long while his dad was nearly 4 inches from head to tail.i also had two 2 feet tank that i kept guppies.ribbon guppies were all the rage back then in the other i kept the ruby albino guppies another favourite of guppy enthusiast.
up keep was really costly since then i have scaled down on how many fish i have but upgraded my tanks to two 3 feet tanks and one 2 feet tank since i have my own condo now. i keep discus in my 3 footer and angel and upside down catfishes in the 2 footer.do visit my aquarium in my profile to take a look at my discus.i love them to bits in the other is a pearl arowana.
in my office i used to have a nano tank but it chrashed so i guess thats my only failure it has been replaced by another 3 feet tank that has a pink pearl lou han in it.

p/s hope i havent bored you guys to death i'm over the top when it comes to fishes

Nice to have you back! I hear you on the discus, they are an easy fish to fall in love with.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
