I have 3 aquariums in my house. All are, of course, overstocked, but, I maintain optimal water conditions and all habitants are thriving. I have a 46 gallon bowfront, 29 gallon and a 10 gallon that serves as a quarantine tank/hospital/jail. Currently, I have more inmates than patients in this tank. Funny how even the nicest fish, like some people, tend to turn mean as they age. I have a pink gourami (Pauley) who is currently serving time for mercilessly harrassing tankmates. Judging by his behavior, he probably won't be going before the parole board anytime soon. I have been in the fishkeeping hobby about three years. Last fall, I added a 160 gallon pre-formed pond to my backyard. I really love tinkering with my little pond and the expertise that I've aquired raising fish indoors helps me maintain my pond. I have several comets that I keep in my pond and recently (Novenber) brought inside for the winter. It is only mid-December and I can't wait to get outside and work with my pond again. It's going to be a painfully long winter.
