Hi, I'm new to TFK but excited to talk to other fish lovers. I, probably like a lot of people, got my kids an aquarium. We started with goldfish then moved to tropicals. I went to my LFS after I "thought" the tank was ready and under ill advice we filled it with mollies and neons. They of course started to die and that's when my obsession kicked in. I felt so bad watching these fish die that I became obsessed I think. Anywho, that was then and this is now.
I have a 55g with Gourami, tiger barbs, a large angel fish, 2 featherfins, a dojo, and 2 iridescents (I realize they will need a bigger tank in the future but it was a "felt sorry for these guys" when I got them). I also have a 10g with 2 corydoras, a neon dwarf gourami, and a disabled opaline gourami and a 29g with a large blue African cichlid and a few tiger barbs (this is a relatively new set up). I also have a 10g hospital tank with a couple misfits right now ;) .
I hope to have a 100g soon but I have plenty to keep me busy lol. My set up may seem odd but it's peaceful and I'm a sucker for trying to rescue LFS misfits ;)

Hello and welcome to the forum

We're glad you found us. Enjoy your time here.

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

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Yep, that's how it starts. Your daughter can't go to Walmart with you without saying hi to each and every fish and me explaining why some of them are dead : / Then you decide to get fishies she can see everyday until it ends up being mommy that's turned it into obsession lol
