Oh hai, newbie from Ohio

Hi all and nice ta meetcha. :D

I'm thatgeekgirl, I'm from Ohio, and I like fishes. I've had em ever since I was a kid, my main interests are green spotted puffers and I used to be REALLY into raising Lake Malawai cichlids but haven't had any of those in awhile. Right now I have a 40 some gallon freshwater community tank, re-cycling a 20 gallon brackish tank (I found another LFS that has puffers!!) and starting my first ever marine tank, which is a 12 gallon little guy. :D

I also love art, video games, reading, my cats and dog, and gardening. I like really random nerdy things too, and collect a lot of random useless things. :D

Anyways I look forward to checking out this board!!

Check out my fishkeeping blog!

Welcome to the forum! Glad you found us.

Read anything interesting lately? I'm always out to expand my book heap (a more accurate description than "library" I assure you).

thanks Willow, Batman. XD

As far as "regular" books, nah I've just been reading Sci Fi novels again (nerd!) but fish books- oh yes, precious, I've read many of those lately- thanks to the library and my best friend in the whole wide world... Amazon.com. XD

So far I like "The New Marine Aquarium" and "The Simple Guide to Marine Aquariums" for good beginner (noob) books, I haven't gotten anything too terribly advanced yet. Here's my list of everything I've read/dug out of the reading shelf and re-read lately: recommended reads

Welcome to TFK, thatg33kgirl. Do you have any pics you can post? Of your tank, dog and cat? We love pics.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Hello, and welcome to Tropical Fish Forum.

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]

Why, of course! I love pics too!!


This is Jimmy, my most fave puffer. He is gone now, but he was awesome!!! Look at that smile!


"You want to come play????"


A random pic I took the other day of the freshwater tank, I was trying to get one of the honey gouramis but they are sooo camera shy!!!


My bumblebee goby from the freshwater tank!


My 12 gallon nano, taken yesterday. Just started cycling. Not very exciting atm


My kitty Zelda aka "The Bear" in the dumbest kitty pose ever. XD


Or perhaps this is her dumbest pose? LOL I'm not sure (she's eating Nori seaweed, she loves it!)


Anakin aka "The Kitten" back last year when he was cute and tiny. :3


Gandolf the Orange about to get stabbed by Ezio from Assassin's Creed 2.


And of course, Princess Peach, the dog. Here she is happy about the fact it was Christmas.


And here she is showing me her belly. She doesn't much like her picture taken LOL

Ah, great pictures!

We have several member book lists here in our Member Submitted Articles section, so yours would be welcome there as well!

I read plenty of sci-fi (and fantasy, too), running the spectrum from trashy to ultra-geeky and everything in between. I actually read through the two Mass Effect novelizations recently because I can't really get enough of that universe. And, just ask Kym, me geeking out over Lord of the Rings isn't uncommon.

Lord of the Rings, you say... well, perhaps you would enjoy something I made with one of my other hobbies...


Yup, thats a Frodo My Little Pony, ah-la thatgeekgirl. I also customize My Little Ponies XD


And what would a Frodo be without a Sam? LOL

Also, I need to finish Mass Effect 1 so I can start on the second one, I hear its awesome but haven't got the time to do it yet. :D
