New member saying hi!

Hello! I am a new member to this forum, and just saying hi. I have several fish tanks, as you can see in my signature. I mostly raise CA/SA cichlids, and bettas. I love the challenge cichlids present, and they just have the best personalities. I see great personalities in my bettas too, and I love all my fish very much.

I also have pet frogs, tarantulas, cats, a dog, rats, and guinea pigs. They keep me busy and happy.

Nice meeting y'all, and I look forward to becoming a member of the community.

Hi artes,

Welcome to TFK

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

I'm slowly working on adding photos to my album! I have almost all my bettas posted, and I'm working on cichlids now. Once I finish them, I'll put up some photos of all my other animals too! I'll post a couple of highlights in this thread once I finish.

Cichlid and Betta folders are done in albums! Here are some of my favorites:
