Hello. I have been away from fishkeeping for many years, but have recently taken up the interest again. I have two aquariums. My Aquavogue 135 currently has one resident, a crown tail Betta. My Juwel Rio 240 is a community tank, housing zebra danios, neon tetras, Siamese flying foxes and an assortment of corydoras, all living in complete harmony. My aquariums are planted with Java fern and anubias. I look forward to contributing to and seeking advice from your society. I will, hopefully, put up photos of my aquariums soon. Thank you for allowing me to become a member.

50 year gap!! That must make you over 50!!!!

Things have changed a lot in fishkeeping during that time. What’s the biggest change you have seen?

Things have been a bit slow recently on here, I blame it on the sunshine, but when it starts raining again hopefully things will liven up.

Post some picture when you can, we love pictures.

I am 72 now. 50 years ago I kept an aquarium in my classroom for many years. I found it a useful tool to teach primary school children about looking after other creatures that are totally dependent upon you. They undertook the tasks involved in maintaining the aquarium.
Now, my wife having passed away just prior to last Christmas, I felt I needed an interest to lift me and do for me what I did for those children then.
The biggest change is the wealth of equipment on offer now and the easy availability of fish. And, of course, the advent of the internet to open up the hobby.
