Quote: learn from the mistakes of others, you don't have time to make them all yourself
About Yourself: I currently have 8 tanks (freshwater, saltwater, and brackish setups) My two newest are a 72 Gallon bow front salt tank (FOWLER) and a 35 Hex (FOWLER) I also have a 100 gallon and a 125 gallon with African Cichlids from lake malawi and several species of catfish. I am a single mom with 2 young children (ages 2 and 6) I don't have a whole lot of time for a social life between my job and my kids so this is a hobby the kids and I can both enjoy! I have kept fish since I was around 10 years old but never to the extent that I do now. I work with several people who spend all their time and money at a bar after work.....Instead of spending money on drinking, I chose to spend mine on aquariums and it keeps me at home with my children.
Fish Kept: Damsels, 3 firefish, 2 misbar clowns, 1 clarkii clown, 1 cherry head wrasse, 1 solar wrasse, 1 coral beauty, 1 lawnmower blenny, 1 saddled toby, 1 snowflake eel, several hermet crabs, several snails, 1 purple lobster, 2 sand sifting starfish, 1 chocolate chip star fish, 1 horseshoe crab, 1 coral banded shrimp, 2 peppermint shrimp, 1 unidentified hitch hiker crab (came in a piece of live rock)
