Well my family has always had a beta in a vase with a peace lilly, but I just set up my first real tank last Sunday. 17 and 70g of water, three different species of goldfish!

Hmm... I kinda don't count my bioOrb because I'm embarrassed by that, but 15 with the bioOrb catfish and minnow. Still alive and well

My grandparents have had a big 120 gallon or so fw tank on the back porch of their house ever since I can remember and they've always had koi fish, I've never been a fan of fw fish but Since I was a little kid I wanted a sw aquarium like that, but I could never get one any size just because it was too expensive, but I'm 20 now and my friend just wanted to upgrade to a bigger tank since she's moving and she gave me her 15g sw tank for free, and I love it. Thank god for awesome friends

I started with a 30 gallon FW tank stocked with perch that I caught, I was 20. Then added a bass, garfish, plecos, some crawfish. Just upgraded to SW. Bought a 180 gallon setup last week. Chipped the tank and had to set up plan b 20 gallon. Had an interesting crash course in SW tanks. But through all the headaches kept my harlequin sweetlips alive that I got with the tank. Apparently they are hard to keep. Granted its only been a week but seeing him active and eating was an incredible feeling. I'm hooked now. Aquarium geek for life.

I love Mud Puppies. They are my Kind of Dream, not fish, but if I ever can afford to, I want a couple of them.
Do you have any photo's?
