About Yourself: I started off with aquariums with my father when I was around 5 years old. Back then, I was more of the cleaner/maintenience boy then anything else. Now that I have my own place, I have 9 tanks, looking into getting a tenth soon (takeover my father's tank) I have been recently spending most of my time doing my Discus homework. I have a great set-up now with 11 Discus total, and I want to try and start breeding them. My main African tank is doing very well, I am carrying wellover a hundred different sorts of fry.. our last batch was 42 Electric Blues.. which I am really excited about. I'm having so much fun with this hobby, I can wait to pass it on someday.

Advice: Patience... the most important thing is patience.. but it's also the hardest to do too. Do your research on all equipment and know what your buying and using. Money can be wasted from both equipment and your fish. Some stuff I lucked out on, many things I found that can be much easier in matenience/ and overall use. Then ther are things you just buy because of the price... I really wasted a bit of money on horrible heaters.. within a few months all they do is take up room in the trash can now. I now have learned my lesson and before buying anything I now do TONS of research online, and over the phone.. trying to get as many opinions and suggestions as possible.. Most of the time you will find a pattern in peoples opinions. Nothing is better than having a great, easy, healthy, and beautiful aquarium... the horrible thing is losing those gorgeous finds because you rushed into something your not certain of. Don't learn the hard way.. it's really not worth it, trust me!
