I am Bill Snyder from Butler,Pa.
I am 58 years old and have had Tropical Fish since I was 12.
Yes,I did start with 3 Common Guppies and a PeanutButter Jar,a bunch of WaterSprite,it was the middle of summer,so I did not need a heater.
In 2 weeks I had babies,man,I was so excited,my first experince with TropicalFish!!!!
My parents me a 10G tank for my birthday and I was off to a very rewarding hobby.
At 17 I branched out to egg layers,Angels first,then Killies,then Dwarf Chiclids.
About a year ago,I started hanging out here reading.
I wanted to try Bettas,but I believe before you attempt anything you should read up on it-then read some more.
I have had 3 spawns,all good.
Now I think I am going to settle in with Plakats,I still breed Killies.
Some day I really want to try Shell Dwellers,if I can ever find any on Aquabid.
