Hello from Atlantic Canada!

    Hello Fishlore Forum Members!

    I am new to the site and just wanted to briefly introduce myself.

    I hail from Atlantic Canada where it's currently snowing on top of the 25 cm of snow we already have... so keeping fish is my way of keeping some nice tropical scenery around here.

    I am still a beginner aquarist. I set up my tank in early summer and bought my first fish in July. I have a red male betta named Maximus and a Siamese Algae Eater named L.J. in my 15 gal tank. Of course, stopping at 15 gal was impossible and now I am in the processing of setting up my new-to-me 33 gal tank.

    I look forward to continuing my hobby and sharing my interest with you all!

    P.S.: Here is a pic of my Roman themed 15 gal tank. Enjoy!

    You can say that again, eh? ;) There is LOTS but that's why I'm here. I love it!

    My philosophy: There's no such thing as useless information, just non-applicable situations...

    Nothing like a white Christmas cheri900! The snow is starting to melt here but I don't think we're in any danger of a green Christmas - we got 30 cm yesterday/overnight. I just went for a walk with my horse (can't ride because I felt down a set of icy steps on the weekend and am pretty bruised from that) and he loved it. He's getting up there in age (27-28ish) but looked and felt like a two year old today!
