Hello everyone,
I am 14 (Soon to be 15 ), started High School in September, and have been involved in the fish keeping hobby all my life. At age 10 I 'collected' rare and exotic species of reptiles from different suppliers around the country, and then at age 12 began to collect fish. (Although, I did already have a few, just more reptiles ) I have about 18 tanks with both reptiles and fish (Mostly fish) with Brackish, fresh and saltwater tank(s). I def. have a lot of experience with common, rare, or native fish. I have owned over 150 different species of fish in my life, and currently own around 90, soon to be more. (Had a Coryfish pair spawn two days ago ) My favorite species of fish would have to be the Knife fish. I have had many different species, as shown in my sig. Just an amazing species of fish.
I also started a fish rescue called "Fish Sanctuary" where I take in unwanted fish; big, small, sick, healthy, common, rare, they all need a home.

Sad to say this, but for me, it would be a Guppy. lol, I could never get them to survive more than a few weeks. Why? No clue, lol. But I can care for many 'exotic' species of fish! It's just the common ones that give me issues, lol.

Welcome! Glad to have you!
That's quite a history you have there, and at such a young age. Do you pay for it all yourself?

Most of the fish, yes, and filters, heaters, etc. Have to work for them, unless it's a Birthday thing, then it is normally my parents. The electricity bill, no, lol.
