Hello everyone. Just a little post to introduce myself since I just kinda jumped into the forum head first. I originally joined to get a little insight into my "rescue" feeder goldfish after I realized this was the forum I was always reading on my phone when searching for information on random fish related things. I started with fish keeping a looooong time ago, after a family friend had an aquarium for a long while. She had a goldfish that I really liked and between myself and the friend we convinced my parents to let me have the fish. Well long story short, it died right before I was going to take possession of it. So after hemming and hawing for a bit my parents took me to the petstore and we got my first 20 gallon aquarium. I had that tank in my bedroom for about 2 or 3 years, then it moved out into the living room for a few more years and then back in my bedroom for awhile. Then after an accident involving cleaning the tank I lost all of my favorite fish and took it down. When I was 16 I got a job at a Petsmart and have been working there part time ever since. Started off in the Aquatics section, was a dog trainer for about 10 years and now back in Pet Care part time. My current set up is a 20 high that has kinda run away with itself. My original goal was to just have a school of tetras and then a few platy and guppy. In reality the first year my tank was setup I couldn't keep any of my male fish alive. Still not sure what caused that. Currently I have: 3 Marimo moss balls 8 Glowlight tetra 3 Rasbora Hets ( I know I need more, on the lookout for a few) 4 Small horned nerite snails ( I love these, everyone should have some!) 1 Single tail telescope goldfish rescue (thanks to the forum in giving him an ID)* And a bunch of random livebearer fry (more rescues) *For anyone new to the hobby, I don't recommend keeping a goldfish in your tropical tank, but he is a rescue and hopefully a temporary addition. My current goals in fish keeping are: 1. start working with live plants and learning how to care for them 2. Figure out a more appropriate placement for my rescued goldfish 3. Shrimp! Hopefully if I did it right, I put in a picture of my tank in its current state. I just added an anubias nana and an anubias congenesis. I will be adding some contortion val soon and hopefully some subwassertang if I can find it. Thank you to everyone who has chatted with me thus far on the forum and I hope to meet more!!
