When I was 4-6, National Geographic had an offer. 20$ for a small tank, which if memory serves, was somewhere around the size of a minibow 2.5
It said to be stocked with a betta or guppies, I picked a betta.
My mother went into labor and went to the hospital to deliver my baby brother. I forgot to feed my fish, and he passed away.
Last year, I decided to get back into fish. I got a 29 Gallon, and got cichlids.
I now have upgraded the 29 to a 40 breeder. I also have a 2.5 gallon betta tank, a 10 gallon tropical tank, and a 45 gallon reef.
Welcome to forum-ing. I hope fish help you with your nerve injury, that is the worst type of injury IMO
. I read somewhere that people with various nerve and mental brain disorders were receiving a therapy where they sat in front of a large freshwater aquarium for 4 hours a day, and had huge improvements.
This is a great forum with nice people, you'll love it.
