About Yourself:I will be brutally honest, I never wanted fish. I am a reptile man at heart. I would go into the pet store to get supplies and rodents and I would see how my kids were FASCINATED by the fish in the tanks. I would have never did a fish tank in my life if it wasnt for my 2 year old daughter looking into a fishtank and saying OOOOOOOOOO WWWWWWOW! I knew then that a fishtank might be very beneficial for my children and my stress relief
Advice:Seek and ye shall find. Ebay can be your best friend and the pet shop your worst enemy. Buy smart, buy in bulk and read seller feedback.
Description:I have gotten lost in this magical place MANY a night.
On a side note, If you try to enlarge this picture or use the magnifier it gets very grainy. I have never had this problem before with any of my past entries. If someone knows how to fix this issue that would be fantastic.
Advice:Fish keeping (fish care) has more to do with vacuuming and doing water changes than anything else. You're sustaining a life support system and dealing with 'hazardous waste' at the same time. You know it's time to upgrade when your confident you have the time and motivation to handle cleaning a bigger tank.
