First fish

What was your first fish?
And how did you get into fish keeping?

My first freshwater fish was a syno granulouys. I'm sure I spelt that wrong but it's a cat fish from lake Tanganyika.
My first saltwater fish was a yellow watchman.
Great little fish.

I got into fish keeping because I was always around fish tanks and aquariums.

My 'first' fish(the first one I can remember- it was a while ago!) were a pair of koi angelfish. And guppies! Always guppies.

I vaguely remember my grandma having some goldfish maybe in a tank when I was like 5, my little sister dad had a Gf in a bowl and a fish I only remember being called a barracuda in a 10 gallon... It could have even been a 5 gallon : / I always wanted to keep fish but never really had the means to. So about 2 years ago I started my first 10 gallon.- a bit addicted ever since... Happy to finally have my 55 up and running, next, discus!
