It has been awhile
Hey everyone! I used to frequent this site quite a few years ago, and I just decided to return.
I'm now at college, sneaking in fish. I'm allowed to have a single 10 gallon tank, but guess who didn't like that rule. I have two tanks in my dorm, a 10 and 5.5, and three back home, a 55, 30 and 6.7. The 30 and 10 gallon tanks are currently dirt tanks and boy do the plants love them. I love experimenting with different ways to keep tanks and I'm really into DIY tank things (I resealed three tanks this summer). So if you ever have a DIY idea, tell me about it!
My fish: In the 5.5 I have Fionn, the betta that acts like a dog, and a nerite snail. In the 10 (divided) I have "Machine Gun" Kelly and "Pretty Boy" Floyd plus a mystery snail and about a million ramshorn snais (I'm picking up an assassin snail soon). The 6.7 back home has Fishy and three ghost shrimp. Fishy and Floyd are both tail biters which makes me so sad. The 30 gallon has 17 albino cories and another million ramshorn snails. The albino cories are a sore subject because they wont stop breeding and it's driving me insane (I found babies in my filter, that's how bad the problem is). Finally, the 55 gallon has 4 assassin snails, about ten billion ramshorn snails, a kissing gourami (who is celebrating his 18th birthday soon), 4 emerald cories and a few little fish my father picked out. That gourami just will not die and even got a name, so please wish Captain Bananas a happy birthday.
So less about my fish and more about me. I am a Forensic Science major, minoring in Biology, Chemistry and Criminal Justice. I spend my weekends traveling to see my boyfriend who is stationed a couple hundred miles away. I like complaining about school, sleeping, and taking long walks on the beach. That's about all. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with everyone, and learning a thing or two from you guys.
