zelibeli Posted December 30, 2021 Share Posted December 30, 2021 Hello all, I'm new to the forums but I've been watching Aquarium Co-op vids on YouTube for almost a year now. I had a 10-gallon aquarium in my childhood, but the limit of my knowledge came from a my-first-aquarium style of book and whatever the salesperson at the local Meijer told me. I didn't have much success but I kept a betta for a number of years and an African dwarf frog for about 4 years, which in hindsight I think might have survived despite my quality of care. I got back into the hobby due to quarantining. We were reorganizing the rooms in our house, and my son, who had his aquarium for about 6 years, told me that he was no longer interested in keeping it, but felt bad about what to do with his fish that were still alive. I told him I'd take care of them and we moved his 36 gallon bowfront from his room to my gaming/office/now-fish room. Removing the glow-in-the-dark décor to something I'd enjoy in my gaming/office space got me googling and youtubing and the next thing I know, I have 7 aquariums and watch aquarium co-op and some other fish youtubers regularly. I have a 36-gallon, a 20-gallon long, 2 10-gallon talls, 2 5-gallons and a 1-gallon that is just for java moss and snails, and in the summer I kept a very small minipond that might be 10 gallons. I'd like to go bigger but I think I'm limited to how much I can add to this room. It's a small middle room over a finished basement and I worry about the inevitable water leak. I keep cherry shrimp, amano shrimp, guppies, black neons, bettas, corydoras, otos, and a 7 year old pink glofish that has survived all of my well intentioned mistakes so far. I don't know a single person who is into this hobby irl and I hope that this forum gives me a place to share and absorb more. 2 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
