To make a long story short, our fish hobby took
on a life of it's own. Now, this is *my* recollection of how it all
started. His would probably be totally different.
*lol* Anyhow, several months later I asked Henry what ever made
him decide he wanted to set up an aquarium. His
response was "because I thought you wanted to". I started to laugh
and he asked why I was laughing. I told him "The
only reason I agreed to do it was because I thought it was
something you wanted". Regardless of how we got
started, I enjoy where we are. I have learned so much over the
past year about keeping fish. I could tell you that
it is all fun and games but I won't. It's a commitment, but a
commitment well worth enduring.
We all have our own opinions on what it takes
to be successful at fishkeeping. By clicking on
Tammy's point of view you will get a short
synopsis of what I believe and how it has affected my world thus far. Update..
"Thus far" was written over a year ago. Much of what I put in "Tammy's point
of view" hasn't changed. What has changed is after two years, you now will be
able to hear Henry's rendition of how our fish odyssey has affected our world.
By clicking on Henry's Tale of Two Tanks you will get a
not so short, but a humorous and enlightening glance into our obsession.
After being asked by someone to have Henry
write an article about the "How to's" of photographing fish I decided to
put a response here that he had given some time back on the subject. By
Photographing Fish & Aquariums you can read
all about it.
I had planned on adding a segment to this site on
the do's and don'ts of fishkeeping for beginners but there is a site that
already exists and the gentleman covered everything so exceptionally well that
I feel it would be an injustice to all who care to read about it to try and do
one myself, so I am just going to link his here. It is called
Beginning Fishkeeping. Thank you Mr Narten for
the excellent reference guide you have put together.
Over time I have seen countless people question
which fish that they have or want can stand salt in their tanks. Until
recently I would always try to give them very general answers based on our
experiences. Well, I figured the time had come for me to do research and
attempt to put some type of reference guide together that I myself need and
could use and if it helps anyone else, that is all the better!
While I have a ways to go before this section is finished, by clicking on
From Freshwater To Brackish and Beyond
you can see what I have come up with so far. I envision this section growing
