    I've had several fish bowls (as a child) and aquariums from 5-120 gallons over the years. Only one at a time. Proudest of my 5 successful years with a 120 gallon wild discus Amazon biotype aquarium. It was difficult to keep the pH down as our well water is quite alkaline. My discus did well until a heater malfunction, after which I had no fish for 15 years due to cooked fish PTSD. I was heart broken to the point that a co-worker gave me a loss of pet sympathy card.

    I’m originally from Tucson, Arizona. We lived in Seattle and have been in Colorado for 30 years. Other pets are: One husband, 3 adult kids, 3 grandkids and my 23 year-old African Grey parrot.
