    Week 4’s Question:

    What got you into fish keeping?

    Such a basic question with so much potential. It could be originally or if you got out for a while what brought you back in?

    For me, it all started back in high school (1986)! with a red cap oranda. It along with three other goldfish traveled from Waycross to UGA and back down to Valdosta with me throughout college. Fancy goldfish are like water puppies. They’re adorable.


    My dad bought me a 10 gallon starter kit from Tetra back in 1990. One of my first fist was an angelfish and they are still my favorite to this day. 🙂

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I got a job at aquamart in Houston, Tx when I was 17.  Before I knew it, I had 4-5 tanks in my bedroom.

    I took a hiatus for a while to raise a family.  I am 51 so been at it for a few years.</p>


    I had a 20 gallon in my bedroom full of guppies while I was in high school, but I broke it down and gave the fish away when I left for college. In college I was project wild and project aquatic wild certified, so I always had glass boxes for temporary housing of frogs, lizards, snakes, etc, but no fish. Fast forward 15 years and my daughter keep asking for a betta, so she got a betta and I got another tank for some guppies..20 tanks later..

    My Mom had a friend that had too many guppies.  Mom set up a tank for her extra guppies and I loved it.  That was before I was 10.  Not telling how old I am now.  Setup my own first tank in high school and spent all my babysitting money on it.  And it continues today

    I think I got started because I was so amazed at a store in my small hometown selling pets other than cats and dogs! :O


    After visiting family, and watching their two 10 gallon aquariums I decided that I wanted one of my own. After pestering my parents for about a year, they got me a 29 gallon for my tenth birthday. It didn’t take long for MTS to set in.
