Hi From TN
Hi! My name is Noel, I'm 28 year old FM, living in Eastern TN. I am addicted to fish *aren't we all?* LOL

I've been keeping fish for about 6 years now. I started off with a betta fish in a 1 gallon tank. Poor guy I over fed him on live brine shrimp :( Of course I then spent hours researching and trying to come up with how I had managed to murder my little friend. Which led me into a 5 Gallon betta/live plant tank. Which led to a 29 gallon freshwater planted community tank... to a 55 gallon fwp... to a 75 gallon fwp or two.... 0_o

More recently I've suffered a neck injury making my 75 gallon tank impossible to clean :( So I'm in the process of breaking it down and setting up a 30 gallon hexagon tank.

Someday, I plan on making the jump into Salt Water, but with looming neck surgery, I decided it best to wait until that was squared away.

I also love to: Read, Do anything with Yarn *though my current love affair is with Crochet*, I'm generally "crafty" as my friends would say.

I'd love to meet people in my area that also keep aquariums :)

The fish I miss the most from my previous aquariums: Pigeon Blood Discus kept in 75 gallon planted tank. I had to re-home him when I hurt my neck :(

Welcome Noel. I'm real sorry to hear about your neck injury. That has to be a real drag. And only 28. wow. I hope all turns out well.
Speaking of 28 y.o. I think it's pretty cool that a person your age in today's society knits and crochet. Those days seem to be fading fast.

Thanks for the welcome guys! I love to Crochet and Knit, my mother taught me last year and I can't seem to stop. My three Achilles Heels are The LFS, The Used Book Store, and the YARN store LOL
