Quote:Don't drink all the water save some for the fish!
About Yourself:I started keeping fish when I was a young dude, and got away from the hobby. My daughter wanted a fish tank for Christmas last year and it grew into a large tank. I am a CSI in Houston, Texas, and this helps to get my mind off my sometimes horrific job.
