II started keeping fish in my teens and with my Mom's help was able to keep some really nice size tanks and fish. I remember we had a clown knife, a ghost knife or two and several angels as well as some kind of eel. It has been so many years that I don't really remember. I had to leave the big tanks behind when I married at my husband's request but was able to keep a 20 gallon guppy tank for a few years. That was many years ago. I am now 50 and after a long hiatus I am returning to the hobby and refreshing my memory and learning more than I ever knew!

Country dancing, hiking, camping, fishkeeping, geocaching, sewing and spending time with my family
