Cool Hi From the West Suburbs of Chicago

Hi Everyone. I was introduced to fish keeping when I was 12. My science teacher had an aquarium in the classroom. Looked cool. So a friend and I decided to set up tanks in our houses.I started with a 2.5 tank on a table in the front room. I bought guppies and some floating plants. The next day I came down and looked at them and I had babies. That got me hooked. I had 2 20gal 2 10gals. After my second year in high school I took them down and sold the equipment. Years laterMy wife kept telling me she would like a tank. She kept fish when she was young also. So I set up a 29 gal in 2011. I can't believe how the hobby transformed. Now I just set up and 37 gal. It does get inside your blood. I am also an avid photographer,car nut and cook. I also enjoy gardening veges. I have an Aero Garden for Aquaponics.
