Hello All,
Just starting out, but am excited about it. So much to learn, so much info out there, it's hard to take it all in at once.
Currently residing in CT, spent a few years in VT, cold up there & Winter lasts too long. I'm a self-employed carpenter, married, no kids, just our fish. Enjoying the site here so far, seems like a helpful place.
Just wanted to say Hi, & a little bit about myself. Talk more when I can, Nathan

Hi Nathan,

Welcome to the forum

I'm dreading the NE winter already. But we got the kick-butt generator hooked up so the fish won't even notice if we lose power (which i've heard happens frequently here).

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

Hi Nathan, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
