    I found this forum by way of Twitter. When I started to seriously get into this hobby (about 15 years ago) I learned everything I needed to know from the internet (new groups). Then I went on to join a Fish club locally. Which is fine but I do miss the online forums.

    It is hard to nail down my favorite fish so I can kinda list what I have now.

    I love Bosemani Rainbow fish! In fact I do like Rainbows but I have to limit myself because we are watching the tank space. They do breed here and I like to give them lots of swimming room.

    We also love Exotic Plecos! We have a group of King tigers L333 breeding and L66 breeding. We have a group of L134 Frog Leopards but so far in two years natta! We also have the Blue phantom (a pair) Hopefully we will see fry! Last but never least is our pair of Rhino plecos.

    I love Whiptail catfish! We have a pair breeding that I have owned for about 3 years, the fry finally made it through that ify stage. They are a common whiptail parva.

    I love Endler's Live bearers! I have two different gold strains that I do not cross and I have a hybrid Japanese Blue Endler Guppies.

    I love Shrimp! I have a tank that used to be my friends who passed away last year, there are cherry shrimp in a planted 20 long with a macro rasbora of some types and a pair of pygy corys. But what I really want one day is the Cardinal shrimp.

    I love planted tanks! I love them and use the Walstead method as best I can, I do use high lights and excel. Use miracle grow organic soil under the gravel.

    other than that we have fish in and out right now messing with some really nice Pineapple swords, ornate tetras, barbs and rasboras. Most fish we buy are from fish club auctions. We have reduced the number of tanks, used to be 33 tanks and now we have 12 and I am enjoying it more!
