Easing back in!!

Hi folks!!

I'm Lee and I live in SW Missouri. Many years ago when I was about 6, I'm 52 now, my Mother was deep into fish breeding, Scalares. I had a couple of older 5 gallon tanks and was given a few Bettas and bred and raised a few for the fun of it. Now my Mom is gone and I haven't had fish in many years. I guess this might be a way to remember my Mom or my youth, but I'm reading and re-learning this stuff to maybe ease back into the hobby.

What got me started was an impulse buy at a yard sale on a couple of unused big tanks, 28g and a 25g. I'm thinking of selling them off for a couple 3-5g tanks and setups.

Anyway, it looks like this is the place to be to learn it all over again. Lottsa stuff to read.

Glad to be here.

Welcome and glad to have you. Some of the longest conversations I've had with my dad was about fish and his aquariums. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks Veloran. Mom and I talked fish quite a lot over the years. I even got her a little tank with plastic fish that moved with the water when she got sick. Told her it would be easier to feed!!

That was really nice of you. My dad still tries to take care of his, but as they break or fall into disrepair, they don't get fixed because he can't take care of them like he used to.

Same here, I came back from a long hiatus last year. Aquascaping and bettas got me back in the hobby. Karma you should try aquascaping, after you get your self recognize with a few things.
