Hi everyone, I'm Lynda (you probably figured that part out).
My husband and I have been keeping fish for 7 or 8 years now and we have 4 tanks between us.
Although I think that at the very beginning of this hobby, there is a huge learning curve and lots of stress, once you get to the point where your tanks are established, you understand the nitrogen cycle and disease, and you've done your best to correctly stock your tanks, you can just sit back and reap the benefits. I consider my tanks my "zen" and take great pleasure in interacting with my fish.
I hope to contribute wherever I can here and thank Marcie for giving me a heads up about this forum.
