Hi everyone
Hi everyone,

Found this forum while looking at 55 gallon tanks stands and found a DIY thread here, so I figured I would join.

I'm a 22 Girl with lots of fish working at a pet store. As of now I have .....25 tanks ranging between 2 and 52 gallons with a 55 in the works. Ive got Loaches, Bettas, Cichlids and livebearers as my main fish. I love Fish. Hope to have fun here.

Hi Lexite Welcome to TFK!! 25 tanks? You've got the bug bad don't you?! lol Good for you. Of course the pet store job just feeds the addiction doesn't it!
I've been in here about a month and there are amazing fish friends in here. Enjoy! oh ya and we like pics!!

Lexite 01-23-2011 01:48 PM

Thanks. I will be getting some pics up soon. I do have a video of one of my tanks.

This is my 36 Cichlid tank. Jack is getting a 55 soon before anyone says she needs a bigger tank. I know and I'm working on it.

In this tank we have my Jack, Albino Zebra, Electric Yellow, Male and female parallelus, 2 Jewels, Giant Danio and the little Orange guy. Hiding we have an Upside-down catfish, Synodontis robbianus and a eyeless pleco. The non Africans are all adoptions that people have brought to my store.

Welcome Lexite! You've come to the right place. Lot's of fish addicts here (me included). I have a female Jack also. She is currently the tank boss of my 135G (for now, anyway).

Thanks for sharing the video. That giant danio sure is a hypozoid, isn't it.

Judging by what we've seen so far... I would say Lexite is highly, highly addicted.
Did anyone tell her that pictures are required..... hope he/she owns a camera!

jeaninel 01-23-2011 11:38 PM
