    Hello everyone! I'm new to the community, but have been keeping fish for 22 years now (Started when i was 5 with a ten gallon community tank!) I have kept everything from guppies to discus to a saltwater reef aquarium, but really love keeping Crayfish. Their personalities are just the best and I could watch them for hours on end. I currently have one Crayfish tank with a Tangerine in it, as well as two 55 gallon Angelfish/tetra tanks. I am hoping I can convince my fiance to let me set up our spare room as a fish room and start to work with breeding guppies again. I had a great program when I was in college working with a line of pink guppies to extend tails on them. I'd love to start a project like that again!

    We also have two bearded dragons, five dogs, a cat, three american paint horses, five miniature horses... and a donkey. haha. It would take some convincing for the fish room, I think... but I think I can get him to eventually come around. haha!


    I am excited to be here to have a community to share my love of aquarium keeping with. I can't wait to dive into some topics and learn more!

    Welcome, I once caught a crayfish from my near by lake, and I kept it for about 2 month. it was super aggressive so I had to return it back. but they are very interesting to observe

    Welcome to the hangout of pet human and their keepers. Great peeps, great info and a little drama on the good side. No matter the issue, never hesitate to speak out. Many will jump in as we've for the most part, been there, done it and still learning.

    Welcome to the forum. Your house sounds like my idea of heaven, with all the critters. Hope you get your fish room. It would be a lot more fun than making it a guest bedroom. :p. Alison

    Hiya! With all those pets, it should be easy enough to convince your fiancee to let you have that fish room. Just give him a tank of his own and pretty soon he'll be "hooked" too☺ Presto! Fish room!

    Crayfish are cool. Looking forward to seeing you in the forums, Welcome!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome! I love my girl, Flame. She is a character and a half and is always entertaining!

    I have managed to convince him to allow me to convert the room into a "small" guppy/crayfish breeding room. Haha he turned around when I told him I already talked to the LFS and they wanted to buy the Orange Clarkii offspring from me. Yes!!!

    Now I just need to decide on a strain or two of guppies as well! Woohoo!!!

    Welcome to Fishlore! Your home sounds like ours 35 years ago except we had two young boys at the time.
