I am just starting out in this interesting hobby of tropical fish. As a child, I had a 10 gallon tank that had some barbs, guppies, and a shark ( I had to have a shark!). After a while I decided to put a perch that I caught out of a pond that quickly ate the barbs, guppies, and the shark.
What do you expect, I was ten years old.
After a crawfishing trip, I put a couple of crawfish in the tank with the perch.
Well, what comes around goes around, the crawfish ate the perch. That is when my Dad said, "son, the fish tank has to go!"
Some 32 yeas later, I am getting back into the hobby. I believe I have grown up from my childhood years and look forward to raising some fish. I am glad that I found this community because I was getting frustrated with all the information that is out there. All I ask is to bared with all the newbie questions I will be asking. Thanks!
