Hey

    I have been a fish keeper for almost seven years now. I keep only Least Killifish and Guppies. I do have plans for expansion on tanks, but not on species kept. I plant all my tanks. My favorite plant is my semi aquatic Pothos. I got a cutting from my grandmother six years ago and now my room is full of them. I have kept the Guppies the whole time and the least Killifish for a year and a half. I have pond snails and Assassin Snails. I have a Newly set up 38 gallon guppy tank, a 20 gallon guppy tank, and a 10 gallon Least Killifish tank. I got into fish keeping on middle school when I saw Guppies breeding in a tank. My fish have helped me through my mental health issues. The two times I tried to kill myself this year worrying about them was a factor in not going through with it. When I was in the hospital I worried about them.

    I'm a retired solder and have PTSD, so I know where your coming from. Fish keeping has been a very good hobby for me and for the most part has kept me sane.

    Glad it has helped you. I have known a few people with PTSD and it seems to be miserable. Best of luck of luck.
