About Yourself: My dad first started my interest when I was 10 and he bought me my first tank. It was freshwater and I loved breeding guppies and swordfish. I gradually switched to saltwater as new technology improved the ability to keep saltwater aniamls alive. I have well over 25 years of aquarium keeping and consider myself an experienced aquarist.
