A fish lover from Latvia

My name is Kate and I come from Latvia. That's a small cold country in Europe.

I have had aquarium fishes since early childhood. It was my initiative to buy a fish tank when I was little and my parents only helped me to carry it home. Then I stuffed the tiny tank with all kinds of fishes without giving it a proper thought. I have improved a lot since then! I love comfort myself and try to create comfortable conditions for my tank dwellers.

We have currently two tanks 40 and 20 gal large. We keep angelfish which are my favourites, corridoras, ancistruses, guppies, tiger barbs, a mysterious catfish who comes out only at night, a great number of apple snails and that's about all.

We also have a dalmatian dog Mirta - the loveliest creature in the world! And four budgies who wake us up in the mornings making our life brighter.

Pet shops here offer a great variety of fishes. I try to memorize their names in different languages, but end up forgetting anyway. This forum is wonderful! It is educational and friendly, I am so happy I've found it!

Thank you all for welcoming!

Scotland is nice and cool, it has mountains and castles. Latvia is flat. But lots of people enjoy fish keeping here too! :D
