Just joined 5 minutes ago and wanted to say hi there. ^-^ I absolutely love fish and I have finally got some of my own.
I wasn't allowed to have any sort of pet at my parents house because my poor dad is allergic to EVERYTHING. :c I could have maybe convinced them for fish, but I really didn't have time to take proper care of them, and I would be gone for days at a time. But! Now, I'm in my own place with mah friends, and I would love any advice you guys have to offer. I'm 25, so still young, but very excited about my fish. Ultimately I love the idea of watching them have babies and such. I have a local fish place that my fish loving friend goes to, and he will take any babies if I ever get too many. I figure I can use the culled ones as food for bigger fish my friend has, and the nice healthy ones I'll keep some and give away the others either to the store or to other fish lovers.
I currently have guppies and I JUST bought them about a week ago. The females were pregnant, and are having babies throughout today, however, I've only managed to save ONE baby fry from being eaten.
He's really healthy though
and I got him moved to my smaller set up tank. I feel bad because he is by himself at themoment, but he seems really happy and healthy and is very energetic, so I'm trying to be optimistic!
Yay! Fishies!!! (Oh, and PS I'm also ADHD sooooo I tend to go on sometimes, but I'm really friendly!)
