Hello People

    Hello everyone,
    I am 14 (Soon to be 15 :D), 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 :D) 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. :)

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.
    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! :D
    That's quite a history you have there, and at such a young age. Do you pay for it all yourself?

    lol, seems to be that way.
    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.
