Greetings from Portland!


I guess I should have started here instead of diving in elsewhere with questions.

I'm Stella and I live in Portland, Oregon. I had goldfish as a kind, and betta and guppies in college, but it's been at least 12 years since I've had fish.

As a kid I always wanted a tropical tank. My parents finally bought me a heater, but then never installed it.

So, when I was feeling self-indulgent a couple weeks ago, I went and got a rimless 5G kit at the LFS (Wet Spot)

It's pretty heavily planted now. I started with two gold white clouds and today just got great results from my water test so I came home with 5 green rasboras. They're acclimating now.

I'm hoping to add shrimp eventually, too.

I'm enjoying learning and researching and reading about everyone's tanks! (And I'm already fantasizing about my next one!)

Welcome to AA!

You're very lucky to have such a nice LFS as wetspot!


3 tanks and counting! (6 if you count the bettas)
Money Can't Buy Happiness, But It Can Buy Fish Which Is Pretty Much The Same Thing!
