About Yourself: I currently have 8 tanks (freshwater, saltwater, and brackish setups) My two newest are a 72 Gallon bow front salt tank (FOWLER) and a 35 Hex (FOWLER) I also have a 100 gallon and a 125 gallon with African Cichlids from lake malawi and several species of catfish. I am a single mom with 2 young children (ages 2 and 6) I don't have a whole lot of time for a social life between my job and my kids so this is a hobby the kids and I can both enjoy! I have kept fish since I was around 10 years old but never to the extent that I do now. I work with several people who spend all their time and money at a bar after work.....Instead of spending money on drinking, I chose to spend mine on aquariums and it keeps me at home with my children.
