Mum introduced me to fish keeping, back in the 1970s, with a large community tank. Unfortunately, the Winter of Discontent and repeated powercuts killed too many tanks and my Mum's passion for it. (I remember a lot of money went down the sink).

I started up myself in the mid-80s, following a West German method which focussed on plants and continued up until 2008, having successes with a number of different communities and with breeding kribs, gourami and angels.

Various life events led to me putting it all away and now, 13 years later, I'm back and absorbing the changes.

It's my madness that keeps me sane.
