Hi Peoples I'm Phoebles

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I have been lurking around on here for ages now and I thought I better introduce myself. I live on the south side of Brisbane and I currently only have one tank. I started with two betta fish which quickly expanded into about 4 tanks perched all over my room. I consolidated down into one tank. I absolutely love fish... I was one of the people who used to love to go to the doctors or the dentist because of the fish tanks and one day I realised that I could keep fish too.

I remember when my first few fish died when I was super new, I cried and buried them in the yard.

Anyways I'm a bit of a dill, I hoped I would trick some people into saying hi to me because of my catchy title. I'm super thankful to be part of this forum, I will probably still lurk but hopefully learn some more things to pass onto even newer people.

Thanks to everyone :)

way back in the day.......... I used to maintain several tanks in dental/doctor waiting rooms.

lol

dentists still terrify me though, even more so since I married one.

They certainly aint afraid of other peoples blood XD

The big question though, is when are you gonna put up a picture of your tank?

We all be nosey here hey

Paying $550 tomorrow for my wisdom tooth to get pulled tomorrow. I'll give you $300 cash for your missus to rip it out in the garage.

Anyways, welcome aboard phoebles. Great to have another member from the better side of town, hahaha!

Thanks everyone for being so kind :) Here is another post-midnight post adding to my perception of "lurkiness". I am hoping to add a pic of my tank soon. I am in the next few days going to change the substrate so I figure it will be a good opportunity then. I am actually following the recipe prescribed by Beencees (I have no idea how to link names) which I found in another thread which involves propagation sand and other stuff. I guess to give more info I keep tame little fishies- bn's, neons, black widdows, kuhli loaches, rasboras etc. I'm changing the substrate so hopefully I can get into planting different plants.

Thanks again for all the hello's :)
