Thumbs up newbie Canadian fishee

Hello all. I am so happy to have found this great site! I am back into the fish hobby after a many year gap, and I can't believe how many things have changed. The hobby has become much more technical and precise ( a good thing, if not a little confusing at times ). Many more options for equipment, tanks, etc. I love it! I hope to talk to you soon.

Kathy

Hi, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum Kathy.

Byron.

Byron Hosking, BMus, MA

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]
