Quote: in the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few
About Yourself: I had my first tank (10 gal) when I was a teenager until it sprung a leak. Returned to the hobby recently and have had to relearn everything but my fish are happier for it. Presently I am a caregiver also of my little fish.
