New to fish keeping

Hi!

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.

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!

fish kept:-

Sunset platies 2m 4f
Guppies 1m 1f
