My kids won 4 goldfish at the carnival a month ago... little did I know that was going to cost me several hundred $$, 3 fish tanks and a new hobby, but I like it and I am learning on the fly...
I can use all the advice I can get, but it started me towards my dream of several years which is to raise sea dragons. Unfortunately, they cost thousands, so I am working my way up slowly. I'm still really confused about cycling.
I started with a goldfish bowl and learned very quickly those don't work! So, then I bought a 1.5 g tank, then a 5 g and then a 20 g. I picked up a male beta along the way and managed to keep the 4 goldfish alive for which I am now my children's hero!
Things have stabilized a bit now, but I want to turn my 5 g into SW
. I live on the beach on Galveston Island and want to take advantage of as many natural acroutemonts as I can. I have a 25 ft. seine net and can drag free SW
fishies and things up for my tank as well as hopefully use the SW
My first goal is to cycle a SW
tank and see if I can keep a few freebies alive, then I want to move onto seahorses.
I need LOTS and LOTS of help and advice! I look forward to this new community
