Month old member climbing the learning curve

Post by daizeyhead on Sat 24 Sep 2011, 8:05 pm

Greetings all,

I registered on the site about a month ago and am enjoying learning about aquariums. I've been maintaining the aquariums at my son's preschool/church for about 6 months now: Malawi mbuna (which are now breeding), plus basic child-friendly (i.e. cheap/tough) freshwater fish. As with any other hobby of mine, I've dove in with both feet and am up to maintaining 10 tanks at school, one at the Longview Tae Kwon Do Academy, and around 7 breeder tanks at home, with a 55 gallon and 100 gallon empty in my basement waiting to be filled. I'm doing well at breeding mbuna, guppies, and platies, and have numerous gravid tetras but am still inexperienced with egglayers. My background is as a reptile breeder/hobbyist, but fish are a little more kid (and teacher!) friendly.... so here I am. Hoping to learn about more exotics and enjoy the challenge of creating biotopes for specialized animals. I've been enjoying reading everyone's posts and am looking forward to participating in future discussions, as I gain knowledge and confidence. Thanks for the site!

MTS?

And yes, I will eventually be interested in learning about saltwater (what's up with the "East Texas Reefers"?). Lack of budget and experience, however, seem to suggest I stick with the what I've got for now.

MTS = Mutiple tank syndrome

I heard ETR had shut down. Been a year or so since I quit them.
