Just here to help and be helped

Hello, I am Destiny. I have been working with fish and other watery creatures since I was very small. I have worked for a zoo and I've worked for a fish company. I love to work around fish.

My fiance has not been in fish as long as I have, but he loves them as much as I do. Our very first fish was a Red Tail Catfish. NO I did not do my research before I bought this awesome fish... I did learn that they do GROW...and thus I used every penny of my fun money to upgrade until my baby "Yumcloth" a.k.a Yummy was happy. He now resides in a 3000 gal aquarium and will eventually have a female joining him... she's very tiny right now. She fits happily in a 2.5 gal right now. LoL. I am a rescuer of large fish. I am currently working on buying a new 2000 gal aquarium for a Red tail at a petstore that is in desperate need of a better home. All large fish are welcome in my home.

I have a ton of aquariums in my home. I have a 3036 sq ft home and YES I plan for most of the walls to eventually be aquariums. My fiance loves Saltwater, but I know more about the set up than he does, so he learns from me. LoL. I prefer freshwater, but I do love salt as well.

Let's see.... I also own four great danes and a papillion... I know what happened with that? I am a Marine Biology major in college and have a timeshare condo in the Bahamas at Atlantis Resort where my fiance and I go scuba diving and sailing every year.

I DO NOT mean to sound spoiled. I just love being around water... and I'm sure you know how that it.

Oh, I'm 21 yrs old and my fiance is 24 yrs old.... not bad for youngsters.

Look forward to talking with people and helping where I can... and getting help when I need it. THANKS

Des

Welcome to the site Destiny! Sounds like you and your fiance have quite the collection of tanks in your home! We love pictures here, especially of large tanks like 3,000g tanks!

Best wishes!

The 3000 gal is made from glass (THICK but still glass). LoL. Heavy as heck. Required special people to move it when I moved into my house and had to have the PERFECT spot because there is NO moving that tank. Normally I just go snorkeling to clean it. LoL Yes I use a HUGE gravel vac and the water changes are 50 % about once a month sometimes less depending on what I feed everyone.

As soon as I get my camera back from the Camera DR. I'll take some updated pics for everyone.
