Hello fellow fishkeepers
I'm brand new,my name is Heather. I'm 33 and I have been keeping fish since my dad got me a 5 gallon starter kit for Christmas when I was all of 9 years old! Of course,that led to a ten gallon that I stuffed with goldfish to the brim,and so on!
Today (properly educated in fish keeping! ) I am just smitten with angelfish. Recently purchased some Philippine Blue Pearlscale smokeys that I could sit and stare at all day...Also bought an angelfish friendly hexagon aquarium rig that I am quite proud of.
I like to chat about fish,too much sometimes and people think I am boring,especially my fiance! lol He just doesn't understand....;-)
Can't wait to get started on here.
Hello Heather and welcome to the forum!
I am only a couple years older than you and as a kid I also kept 3 goldfish in a 10 gal tank. This was before the Internet, and having so much info on fish care readily available. I only did water changes when the water looked really nasty and started to smell! Had the same goldfish for close to 6 years. Looking back on it, I wounder how they survived!
Do you have any pictures of your current setups?
Hello Heather and welcome to FishForum :-D Looking forward to seeing some pics of your angels
I posted some pictures!
Haven't used a forum in so long I felt like I was doing it for the first time all over again.
Hello and welcome to FishForum.
Welcome to the forum. I have a 45 gal hex. too - pretty but I wish I had longer arms to replant after cleaning.
Hi Heather, welcome to the forum! I'd love to see pics of your other critters.
You have quite the menagerie. :-D
I recently aquired the new kitten when she followed me on a walk for a mile,it was 110 in the shade that day...Another one was behind me following me too,but I didn't see it in time and it got smashed by a car and I felt so bad...so I scooped her up,carried her for a mile up hills,sweated all over her and she has long hair-so it looked like I dunked her in water. I see it as She chose Me. lol
My lops were easter bunnies people buy for their kids,they get big and pawned off so I take all I come across...Just raised some wild rabbits my mom's old dog carried up into the yard with 100% success-released them early summer and two still hang around my yard which thrills me to no end!! lol
My turtles were "gifts" from my sister who found one in a parking lot and the new little one inside of a VA hospital-how he got there is a mystery.
Sooo many stories of heartache to go with the good ones,I've had a few animals who were so sick when I found them that they had to be put down after I spent lots of cash trying to fix them and I have cried rivers of tears...I still do it tho. Someone has to love them. I have a soft heart. :cry:
hello and warm welcome to you.:-D
