I started my fish keeping journey lots of years ago. I took a break from it for about 6 years but am now up and running again and loving it.
I set my 55 gallon tank up December 14th, 2015, added fish December 18th, 2015. Tank completed its cycle Jan. 19th, 2016

I spend a lot of time here on this forum and gardening when weather permits. House plants are growing everywhere in my home and I tend flower gardens all over my yard.
