Hello From Texarkana

Post by unblinded on Fri 11 Feb 2011, 1:35 pm

I'm in Texarkana--almost 34 years old. My parents kept fish when I was 4. I got my first fish at 5, bought my own tank at 13 and got serious into fish at 23. I've had up to 16 different tanks going at any one time but now am down to 2. I've got a 300 gallon mbuna tank full of lava rock with about 100 mbuna & about 30 catfish. Mbuna & synodontis catfish are my favorites but I have an affinity for all things nautical. The most I've ever paid for a fish is for my Synodontis Granulosa--235$(includes shipping). I've had him for 2 years & he's beautiful. Hi to all & good to see there's an interest here in East Texas.--Oh yeah--I grew up in Mt Pleasant, have family & friends throughout east Texas--Leesburg, Pittsburg, Longview, Tyler, East Mountain, Mount Pleasant, Clarksville, Hooks, Sulphur Springs--throughout.

He's about 9 inches long--looking to buy another one in April or May. My current one is a male, I'll be buying a female next.
