SabI you are so lucky with that 67G. I know I keep talking about it, but I soooo want a bigger tank. The biggest we can afford/place is 30G.
if I were you, if you can afford it, find a corner to pu it in. that way it doesn't take much spaceSabI you are so lucky with that 67G. I know I keep talking about it, but I soooo want a bigger tank. The biggest we can afford/place is 30G.
We've been into the hobby about that long too. We got carried away trying out all kinds of fish. We started out with a 5 gallon with 3 gold fish that a friend gave us. Then I got a bigger tank like a 20 gallon got more fancy goldfish. Learned more about gold fish and realized that the 20 gallon was too small for all those goldies. I got a betta and a little tank for him...then we went crazy. I kept african cichlids in the 20g, upgraded to a 33g then to a 42g, then to an 80g.1 year and 4 months! I've had danios, neon tetras, bettas, corries, + guppies.
I'm planning on getting tiger barbs and shrimp soon tho.
Correction, I've been into tropical fish for a little over 2 years now.I've been into fishkeeping for 6 years; goldfish for the first 5 years and tropicals fish for 1 year.
Almost a month...and Dino - I'll be 28 in September. You've been keeping fish longer than I've been alive!
32 years, almost always had at least one tank going.
When my kids were small the was a period of about five years that I didn't. I had three kids in less than three years- twins then one more- it was all I could do to keep babies fed and laundry done.
Now, the kids are all teenagers. I've got my 85, and the twins each have a 10. As soon as they go away to college(September!) I get a fish room.
Hi!28 years as of this upcoming June.
Thanks tan.b. Way to make a person feel old! (just kidding).
I'm making plans for the fish room already. One huge tank to move my clown loaches and bala sharks in to, several varying sized smaller tanks, and a big comfy chair to sit back and enjoy them all in. I plan on replacing the window with a door to the backyard, so I can do water changes straight on to the lawn.
Fortunately, my brother is a contractor and can build the stands and put in the door for me.
The 85 will stay in the dining room, and will be home to Congo tetras and and an elephant nose.
