Very Happy Friendly female fishkeeper here, at present only have 4ft tank with a couple of albino cories, 1 male and 3 female fighters in it but have err a few tanks (about 14) in storage! I downsized due to ill health but gradually getting better and THAT itch is starting to grow again.
I've kept fighters since I was a teenager (long long time ago Razz), bred them quite successfully for a few years too then got fed up after a bad run of sick tank syndrome...but it always comes back lol. I have also persuaded my fiance to like fishkeeping too, I bought him a smallish tank for his birthday lol..he raised a few fancy goldfish and Koi in it then went out and bought another so he's hooked now too. geek

Looking forward to getting to know you all on the boards Very Happy

Hello there Rott n Roller Smile love the name! LOL!!

Welcome to the forum and its great to have you as a member Smile i too have made the 'mistake' of introducing the other half to the joys of fishyworld and now we have something like 26 tanks on the go LOL!!! One addicted soul in the house is one thing but when there is two.........well we need an aquarium to live in i think hehehehe

Did you have some ads in the paper a little while ago by any chance - breaking down the fish house type ad? Just what you said there seems to spark a memory for me!

I too can relate to the fish keeping cycle, love them, get a stretch of bad luck or ill health etc and get fed up and disheartened, pack up the tanks, miss them, start again with one and then its all back full flow before you know it rofl rofl

I've been keeping fish on and off for about 23 years and been mostly with community fish myself though having a cichlid trend at the minute with the tanks Smile

Looking forward to getting to know you better as well Smile

Hi Wonderfish, glad you like me nic lol! I love Rottweilers, best dogs in the world imo...have 2 rescue Rotts
that want to lick you to death, a rescue Lab x (that would eat the leg
off you!) and a tiny wee JR x who is THE Boss of the Rotts

Wasn't me selling my tanks, I couldn't part with that stuff (probably why I've got around 20 heaters lmao:P)

Hi mbuna, thanks for the welcome Very Happy I bred the coreys a few years ago but now only have the pair left, sold/gave away most of them and this pair are around 4 years old now. I'll keep you in mind if I get more and start again Smile

Yeah i couldn't part with mine either - i still have my original tank in the garage hahahahaha!!

sounds like you have a handful with the woofers then as well as the fishtanks lol! a friend of mine introduced me to the lovely side of Rotts many years ago when i started off petrified - i got bitten by a dog when i was young and had a fear of most dogs never mind the big ones! but i ended up being a roll toy for hers - i used to lie on the floor and he rolled me over and over with his nose - well when i could stop laughing for long enough Very Happy
