New to fish keeping


I am 67 years old, retired, male and a relative novice to both fish keeping, growing aquatic plants and using forums.

I live close to Heathrow Airport, London, UK.

I have a semi-tropical conservatory and grow a number of orchids.

I have inherited my grandson's tank, 15 gallon, just a few weeks ago. This has got me hooked on fish keeping and I intend to get a larger tank in the near future.

Hopefully I will learn a lot from this forum.

Welcome Geeble!! We glad you joined us!! You can start this addiction at any age that's for sure! You didn't say what type of fish you have!!

Oh and.... Tanks multiply too by the way, not just fish.

I try my best not to stray from one tank, but it's hard, that's for sure! I am already planning out tank #3 as it is. Welcome!

Hello Geeble

Welcome to the forum. You'll find lots of friendly experienced people here to help you along.

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