Hello

Hi, Im new to this whole hobby. My parents died of Covid in July so I took in their fish. They had a terrible little 1.5gal tank that was plugged into an outlet that was constantly shutting off the filter, so I got a 29gal tank for their fish and spoiled them. Now theyre in a 60 gal tank with more friends, its now a planted aquarium and Ive turned the 29gal tank into a planted shrimp tank. This is a very addicting hobby and I have far too much to learn. Im winging it, trying to keep everyone happy and enjoy it myself.

Thank you, Shellyx. It was, I lost them 3 days apart, just beyond comprehension. Starting this hobby has definitely been a mind occupying hobby, I can say that.

Welcome to the forum! So sorry to hear about your parents

It is kind of amazing you've been taking such good care of these fish though. What kind of fish do you currently have?

(And yes, this hobby is addictive haha)
