Reintroduce Yourself Thread
Welcome back everybody! ?
Hi I'm Andrew aka Ppulcher.. I used to help out on the Livebearer and Plant sections for several years. I've got a little fishroom with about 20 tanks ranging from 10 to 65 gallons. I'm into mostly wildtype livebearers (nezzies, alvarezi swords, goodeids etc.) and killies. The kids have some axolotls as well. I still keep lots of plants. Lots as in quantity but not species - I found the highly manicured aquascapes to be too much effort to keep so I rely on easy plants like anubias, java fern, vals, hornwort and najas.
It's good to see some familiar names!
I was Cholly on the old forum and I'm a creature of habit. Down to one tank these days, but it's a 125 gallon, being prepared for some polypterus endlicheri(I just got it yesterday!) Since the last of the African cichlids have all passed or been given away(convicts make guppies look like amateurs!)he old 55 is being retired to become a terrarium.
Where's our Curmudgeon? I know she's alive, I just saw her post on FB. Does Randy know this has been resurrected?
Hey there Cholly. Glad to see you sign up. Missy and I decided to put up the site as a dedication to the Norwoods after the domain squatter(s) over at godaddy have been repeatedly refusing to sell back the old domain. After all, without petfish, Missy and I would never have met. We have been working on restoring some of the original articles posted by the petfish community users and trying to boost interest on facebook and other social media platforms but it's slow going. A lot of people have moved in and out of the hobby so we'll see if we can attract a few previous members back into the forums and maybe a few new ones.
Love to see pics of the 125. Feel free to post a few in the gallery section. 🙂
It will be slow going, I don't move nearly as well as I used to and that thing is HEAVY, lol! The back is painted(I discovered I really liked how that looked with a 45 long!) but it's still in the garage. Once it's in the house I'll start washing sand since polypterus can have issues with gravel. Their eyesight is poor, and they've been known to mistake gravel for food pellets and die because they couldn't pass it. Also, I like how it looks!
