Jumping back in!
I recently got employed at a store that sells fish and after many years of keeping them and only a few of getting off the hobby, it looks like I'm back in it again!
I lament getting rid of my 55g and Tiger Oscar but it was hard times and since he isn't here to spit water at me I can say I love my frog more!
I used to breed barbs, bettas and cichlids (convicts mostly). I used to have 1 55g, 3 10g and 2 40g breeders before college then gave them up. I used to make custom tank setups as well!
I will likely get a new tank once we move and I get settled into this job. My roommate has a saltwater that I have helped maintain but try to let her do the work of it (which has been trying... green hair algae has taken a strong hold, it's hard not to help out but this is her tank xD)
I decided to join this forum to help me brush up on my knowledge and learn other things as well as help out however I can!
29, almost 30 (ick!)
I still love Tiger Oscars
I know a ton and love my amphibians.
I know too much about cats. (I have 2)
Same with dogs. (I babysit 1!)
I do artwork in my spare time and play video games.
I try to learn one new thing every day!
hello and warm welcome to you :-D
40 Breeders are an AWESOME size, very versatile with the 18 inch width - you can keep on a lot of great fish in 40b's.
What are you future fish keepin plans?
Welcome!!! We're glad you joined us!! pssst... I love Oscars too but can't devote a tank to them right now. Maybe some day I'll have one again.
Thanks for all the warm welcomes, in answer to your question, my future tank plans are:
A 20-30 gallon tank (more if I have the money and depending on where we move, ideally a 55 gallon).
I'd like a planted aquarium this time with hardy plants.
Then depending on the size of the tank I'd love to stock Fire Mouthed Cichlids, a Raphael's Catfish, some barbs or maybe just a setup revolving around dwarf african clawed frogs + fish it really depends.
I don't get paid enough to really consider saltwater for a future tank but I wouldn't mind helping my Roommate upgrade in size :3
I have learned that despite what anyone says, I have never had an oscar live with anything except a Raphael's Catfish, which to his/her credit they did try to eat at least once or twice before realizing it was pointy and icky.
