Taking the plunge back into the water again
Howdy y'all (and that's the last Texas twang you'll get from me).
Just getting back into the aquarium addiction...errrr....hobby from a nearly 20 year absence. My...my...my how much things have changed!! I started with my first aquarium (a whopping 10 gallon) back in the mid-1960s and ended up with a little over 4000 gallons total tank space by the mid-1980. That's when marriage and mortgage put an end to my aquatic extravagances.
Well....now I'm back...in a small sort of way. I finally convinced the spousal unit (wife) that I wouldn't be happy without some sort of aquarium in the house. I bought a nice bow-front 26 gallon that I've now got stocked with 3 Blue Gouramis, 4 hefty Tiger Barbs, 2 Yo-yo loaches, a Red-tailed Zebra Loach (Schistura subfusca or whatever species it is named today), an unidentified loach similar to the Zebra, and a small Farlowella (which will be headed for another tank as soon as I get one).
I stumbled on this site quite by accident but it has been a most pleasant discovery! I hope to pick up a lot of new information and to share some of my 'old-timer' stuff at the same time!
