Hi Folks of the Aquarium hobby. I am new as you can see. But not to Fish. I started awhile back in 04-05 Keeping Apistogrammas and different type of dwarf cichlids, But I had to cut short my Hobby in 07-08 due to having a newborn in the family. Now I am getting back in the aquarium hobby again. I hope I can learn a lot from people on this forum.

Thanks Holly for the Idea.

Welcome, and I know how you feel. I have a son who just turned 3 and a 13 month old little girl. It was tough on my hobbies for a while, but loving aquariums seems to run in the family! What are you planning on keeping?

As of right now I am planning on a planted aquarium with Endlers, Shrimp and Community type of fish.
In the Long term, I hope to get back at keeping Apisto.

What about you what are you keeping?

A couple of planted tanks with assorted tetras, plecs, pelvicachromis and anabantoids. Also working with some livebearers, snails and hopefully some killies soon. Before the kids, I went through a decade + long African Cichlid obsession. Less space (kids take up a lot of room :)) and a desire to try some different things again have me off in new directions. I think I'm partially reliving my childhood as I seem to have developed an affinity for platies and endlers, which remind me of old school guppies...

LOL. I think that is also happening to me trying sound new. Like Endlers and shrimp and whats not. I agree with you about the kids taking alot of room. I had to break down and tear down my fishroom and move my office room there so the kids can have they're own room. but its all worth it though.

Yep kiddos are worth it, but mine are now in High school, and are quite scared that when they go off to college, they'll come back to only a bed IN a fish room...LOL
I wouldnt DO that- but they may find a few tanks in there....LOL Holly

Beautiful Apisto dave!!! I remember buying some from you awhile back. It was the hongsloi red and the Tri. Still have them too. I remember I order two of each and got three of each instead. Thanks dave. I think I email about them cause I didn't buy it on aquabid. Still Would love to know what you have for sale trying to get back into apisto.

BTW dave has some amazing apisto I have seen.
