family hobby
hey everyone i just recently got back into the hobby about a couple of months ago and my 8 year old daughter was the one who got me back into it so now we are doing the hobby as a father/daughter team. The tank has only been up for about 4 weeks now and we have a 10 gallon with about 6 fish in it but between me and her im sure that it's going to go through alot of changes in the future.

Hello and welcome to the forum mgkdad. What a great hobby for you and your daughter to do as a team. What type of fish do you all have ?

Hi and welcome! I, too, recently got sucked back into the hobby by my children. We had been tankless for a few years and then my son asked for a tank for Christmas, my daughter wanted one of her own by that summer and now we just got through upgrading them both to 75 gallon tanks (and I picked up a 125 for myself, lol).
Something I wanted to throw out there for you that has really been enjoyed by my kids is participating in the Aquatic Science project through 4-H - might be something to check into in your area for your daughter.

thank you Ziva D i will look into the 4-h program we are going to the pet store today to get two more guppies and she wants to put some live plants in the tank and thats something new to me so it should be interesting to see what we come up with when we do the research on the plants
