Here in Lake Chapala, South of Guadalajara, we are lucky to have one fish store. I wanted an aquarium again for water for my plants. Now I have one 10 gal
and one 40L. Happy to have fish again. I have been living in Mexico for 12 years. Retired, two dogs, couple of hundred plants and now fish keep me busy with Covid outside my walls. Acceptance and patience are two traits you aquire here or return north. Life can be easy if you do or hard if you don't. I love to research everything and forums can be a good source.
