Hi from Pa.

Hi,
My name is Bill,I have kept fish for along-long time(not saying how long)!
I started with 3 common Guppies and a Peanut Butter jar,and it just got out of controll after they had babies!!
I have breed Angels,Dwarf Chiclids,Killies,and numerous livebearers.
I just started with Bettas about 6 months ago,I have had 2 spawns that I have given away to quite afew people,my way at getting back at the stupid Box Stores,if they want to sell them at $15.00 -$20.00 a crack,I will give the same fish away for free!
Petco loses business,people are happy to get them,and I get a free shot at Petco!!!
Right now,I am in a fued with them over thier false labeling of thier "so called" aquatic plants!!
Anyhow,enough venting,I am really glad I found this place,when I first started I would have had to read a zillion books to get the knowledge I have gotten here!!!
Really cool place and very nice and helpful people here!!!
So,thanks to all

Hi Bill and welcome to TFK

I'm still trying to get the image of 3 fish in a peanut butter jar out of my head...... :/

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Good to have you here, Bill. I've read some of your valuable input on other threads. Nice to have another experienced, mature contributor. Glad you're around.

( Is there an 'Old Fart' thread in the Lounge?)

Ha ha ha. Not that I know of but there are a few of us sprinkled here and there throughout the forum. Feel free to start an old fart thread if you'd like

Does 44 qualify as an old fart? My kids think so.

Hello neighbor. (I'm in Ohio) It's not fair.... I'm 25 and my neice told me I was old.... well to be fair when I was 10, 25 was old too. when your 15, 30 is old.... ahhh well. :)

Welcome!
To continue with this line...I'm 37, I was trying to explain to my 5yr old daughter about death and why our elderly dog had died, that it was how our natural world worked and she said, " You mean when someone gets old like you, they die?" And another time, "When I grow up and have babies, you'll be dead."
Yep, I guess when you're young, someone older might seem ancient or even prehistoric...

Thank goodness you guys have so much experience to teach us.
And I agree with Ghostfeather: I, too, am glad I found this site when I did!

I can remember when the"Don't trust anyone over 30"started!!!!
Age is all in your head(somtimes your knees,your back,your legs)!!!
You can be 58 and still be young,if you don't let it get to you!!!
