Hey all! Like the title says, I'm a first-time momma, who hasn't owned a fish in over a decade! I've been lurking on here, reading the advice for a few days, and I'm glad to have found you, or else I'd be lost!
Actually, that's slightly embarrassing to admit, considering that I'm a Licensed Veterinary Technician in NYS! Granted, I don't practice on fish, but all I remembered from my school days was the term "ich."
Anyways, I picked up a beautiful double-tail male at the store, and he's so cute and funny! He's in a very small tank (prepares for scolding), but he has a heater, thermometer, and conditioner, and I do partial water changes every few days. He interacts with me, and I've already seen him blow a few bubbles at the top! I plan to get a larger tank soon, but for now, this one will have to do...
No name for him yet, maybe you all can help?
