<p class="bbc_center">My interest of fish stemmed from my wish to have a pet, something which was my own, something not for the family to share, some responsibility. Having an ideal birthday coming up, I decided to ask for a 'budget' hexagonal fish tank.<br><br>
Back then however, I knew nothing about the 'Nitrogen Cycle', nor even the point of a filter! As you can guess, the 'Black Moor Goldfish' I bought died a few weeks after. This then deterred me from any more fish for a couple of years.<br><br>
Obviously if I wanted to get any pet, I'd really have to 'push the boat out'. I had to do my research - Big time. While doing this I then discovered the true needs of fish, and the fact that no matter how much I'd like - They all need filters! <img src="http://www.fishforums.net//public/style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif" alt="whistling.gif"><br><br>
Anywho, I then 'took the plunge' and done a quick search on <em><span><strong>the</strong></span></em> great Ebay for local fish tanks on offer. Here I found my small, tropical, 42 litre tank hooked up with all the needed equipment - Fit for a small 'Siamese Fighter Fish' and 6 'Celestial Pearl Danios'<br><br>
But this was still not enough... I then began drawing up a monstrous design (from the floor to the ceiling). A stand with a cupboard, aquarium and vivarium. The total amount of litres it held: 222 litres...<br><br>
Which then brings this up to now...<img src="http://www.fishforums.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smartass.gif" alt="smartass.gif"><img src="http://www.fishforums.net//public/style_emoticons/default/thanks.gif" alt="thanks.gif"></p>
