Hello Everyone!
My name is Henri ( pronounced Henry ) and I live in Albania, a small country between Italy and Greece in Europe. I really love fishkeeping and I found this great site while surfing the net, so I didn't hesitate to join. I currently have a 10G tank with a female swordtail that has given birth to little fry. This is my firat spawning, Im 15 and I never thought I could make it so fast! My male swordtail accidentaly jumped out of the tank and died, three weeka before the mother laid the eggs :(. Anyways fishkeeping is hard for me, I don't have access to some aquarium equipments, such as test kits or gravel vacuum cleaners, because these arent being sold in my country. Im still just a child and I cant order them online because I dont have my parents' support on this, they think keeping fish is a waste of time, so its hard for me cleaning the substrate and whn something is wong with my tank I do t hav how to test the water parameters...
Anyways thanks for everything and I hope I can make some new friends here as well as get a lot of knowledge on my fish!
Cheers,
Henri

Welcome to AA! I'm 13, so your not the only one stuck with needing parents permission for stuff. :) you'll learn a lot here! Check out the teens of AA thread. You'll find lots of others our age that you can talk to about anything! It's a good thread to get to know people on. :)
