Hey all just joined and thought I'd say hello.
I'm recently new to the hobby/addiction (7 months and around 30 tanks shared with my mum).
I'm learning as I'm going and slowly progressing and getting more involved with the support of my LFS and my mum and have found it is a great help for mental illness.
I've made mistakes just like everyone else but have learned from them (in most cases) and can hopefully help others to avoid making the same mistakes.

Thanks and the obsession will become greater once I move to cichlids (hopefully starting another tank for some multifasciatus in about a month)

Water changes split between 2 days (i have a routine when performing water changes takes about 7 minutes per tank) and feeding twice a day and that's about it

wow, I hate to say this. You'll never make your money back if you decide to sell them all unless you do some serious breeding XD

Do some serious breeding anyway, strike a deal with your LFS for store credit. Then you can afford more fish

We've started breeding but its not about the money its the enjoyment and experience. The money will just be an added bonus if we actually sell anything (usually give them away)

Yea, I get it! we have about $10K spent in total (I'm not trying to flaunt) We will never make that all back. We just love the hobby, Its amazing seeing fish socially involved and such. We would like to bbreed Peacock but they hate us apparently
