    I just joined this group and wanted to say "Hello"

    Here is a video of my guppies with a cameo appearance by my dog!

    I have removed the bubble wall and added a few more females since this video was taken. I am expecting two more batches of babies any day now.

    I love fish. I used to have cichlids that I raised and sold to the local pet store, but alas they went out of business.

    We were into them big time after we got married---of course we lived in an apartment and pet selections was limited.
    I'd eventually like to get more---they are great to watch.

    loved the video by angelique510 there is something so relaxing about watching fish i only have a couple of goldfish as they are easier to look after than tropical, but tropical fish are alot more interesting.

    Waaaay back, I got started in aquaria by a friend who was breeding veil-tail Angels. Did the usual 10-gallon thing (bad way to start), and moved up from there. At one time, I had a 55, 2 29s, and 2 10s. Had all 5 going only a few times, when I needed a hospital tank, and I had a Beta that couldn't live in the 55. I eventually scaled back to just running the 55. I had, over time, a pleco that grew to 13", corydoras, tiger botias, loaches, gouramis, danios, tiger barbs, bloodfin tetras, and of course a few really spectacular veil-tail angels.

    Housing issues and economics had me tankless for quite a while, and I've only been back into it for a bit over a year. I have a 20 High now, with corydoras, bloodfin tetras, white cloud mountain minnows, 1 siamese algae eater, a clown pleco, and a snail. Oddly, the clown pleco doesn't seem to do much on the algae. My 55 with the generic pleco always had clean glass.

    I'd love to do a marine tank. No room in this little apartment for it. I'd move from my 20 to a 46 bowfront before I'd get into a marine system.

    At one time, I was looking at trying brackish.

    I was at the pet store today and fell in love with and brought home a trio of black lyre-tail mollies. When I got home and put them in the tank, I noticed that I now had about two dozen more guppies than I had when I left the house (albeit very tiny ones) :) And not from the female that I thought was going to have them. My turquoise female is extremely pregnant. I bet she'll have at least fifty babies.

    I'll make another video sometime soon. If this keeps up, I'm going to have to buy a bigger tank. My husband is going to have a fit! I was going to comment to Vapor Dwarf, that goldfish may be easy to take care of, but they grow so big, you're constantly upgrading your tank. With livebearers, I may have a similar problem. Now I know what they mean when they say they breed like guppies!!

    oh god.. no.. no tanking.. my wife would kill me, and I don't have room for what I'd want, I had a 125 gallon show tank (tall and thin) I started with cichlids, then went into gouramis for a while, then did sharks and japanese fighting fish. I tried all the little fish for a while, but they seem to get lost in that tank.
