Hi from vancouver, BC, Canada
This is my first post. I am a new fish lover from vancouver, BC, Canada.
I just started a couple months ago, with at first Betta fish for my kids in a bowl then moved on to getting a couple snails and some tetra in a 10 Gallon tank with some fake plants.
I really love fish but have no space for a big tank at the moment. I have since thrown away my fake plants and purchased quite a few real plants and driftwoods and rocks.
I also just purchased an API test kit yesterday.:-)
Now I have a 10 G, also a 1.5 G tank for a Betta, and a 5 G tank for a small oranda. The goldfish is less than an inch long, I have some nana plants and 1 filter which is meant for a 10 G tank, and also a sponge filter in there. I will move the goldfish to a bigger tank when he gets bigger. My kids love the goldfish and he will actually eat off the hands of my youngest kid sometimes.
My 10 G tank now has a pair of cherry shrimps, a pea puffer, 2 apple snails, 1 zebra snails, 1 rubbernose pleco, and 1 Betta. My pea puffer does not nip any fin and does not even like to eat snails.
Anyway, I love visiting this forum and I will be looking forward to learning more.
Thank you...:)

Welcome to TFK,

Excellent that your kids are involved in the upkeep of your fish. It not only helps to make them potential keepers in later life, but if involved enough will also learn a great deal.

Any questions we can answer for you no matter how silly you may think they are, then please do not hesitate to ask.
Enjoy your time here.
