hello all, my name is Chris, while i am not new to the hobby I am returning to the tank. I have been a long time animal lover pet enthusiast, growing up with multiple pets, my mother said we were running a zoo. not really i just kept bringing them home. wether they were strays or unwanted by friends adn family or came from he pet sore as a kid and youth i was enthralled with animal care.While in recent years i have taken a break from fish keeping I somehow have been called back. it must be guppy love. I aquired my new pets from craigslister because i couldn't resist any longer.
I have such fond memories of my first guppies and the excitement of watch and waiting for my first brood of fry. I had a great love for breeding them then. I only really fell out of fish keeping because of moving around so much my fish never recovered and I gave up. an college occupied much of my time. darn education.
so anyway I also have 2 dogs and a crazy cat.
and I can't wait to see how the new tank turns out.
I am really interested in learning more about planted tanks, and i want to build my own sump.
Ill be around probly asking too many questions for my own good.
