About Yourself: My sister had an impressive 30g tank when we were younger, but she has long since lost interest in fishkeeping. My cousin had/has a beautiful 80g tank that really inspired me. Of course, when I found my 120 on Craigslist, I had to go for it (can't beat great deals!) I also had a 10g tank I meant to get dwarf puffers for. I bought what I was told was a Dwarf Puffer (it was only about 1" long at the time). After I got it home I found out it was a Fahaka Puffer, which needed a much bigger home (hence the 120g). He grew to about 18" long, and is now the proud showpiece at our LFS in a 280g storefront showcase.
