I would love to learn how to raise fish. I'm not good at dogs and allergic to cats, fish would be great for me

Fish are fun Amanda! If you are a newbie to fish, I'd definitely start out with Freshwater fish! They are cheaper so if a few die, you aren't smacking yourself for killing a $30 and up fish!

I'm a little late on this....but I wanted to give you a giant hug. When I first read your thread I was so excited, I replied immediately wishing you luck. I was thinking of you today and what came of your test, so I came back to check the tread only to realize that you've already tested and I had wished you good luck a tad late....so sorry! Feeling I'm really going through one of those silly patches.

How are your seahorses doing? I love seahorses! I've always wanted a salt water tank. I'm worried that I might kill all the fishes, lack of experience. What do you do if you go on a trip? Does someone come over to feed the fishes?

No worries! I do that all the time, lol. Happens to the best of us!

As for the seahorses...I have decided to put them off. I can't have another creature in my care that needs someone special to come watch them should I go on vacation...I have enough to deal with where Diesel is concerned. So instead, I'm doing a nano reef tank. It will be a 10 gallon saltwater tank with live rock and coral and a couple fish and then some invertebrates (starfish, crabs, etc.) This will be easier to leave for a couple days...the fish will have whatever is in the tank to pick at or if someone is staying with my dogs while I'm away as opposed to me finding someone to board Diesel (thats a job and a half in itself...) they can just drop in a cube of frozen food and all will be well. Should be interesting. The 5 gallon tank I bought for seahorses came in the other day...I went out and bought a betta. He's the happiest betta I've ever met seeing as they are usually kept in gallon or smaller tanks, lol. He's got 5 entire gallons ALL to himself! His name is Fred.

I have a friend that has corals too! So beautiful!! I want to have a saltwater tank too. But I'm too intimidated especially after hearing him tell me how to care for it. I think it's difficult! You must post a pic and let me envy!

I bet Fred is super happy!! That's a huge space for a beta!

Oh, and I believe it when you say it's a job to find boarding for Diesel. I've got 2 pups of my own so I know the feeling! Especially when I'm going away for the holidays....so difficult as everyone else is also traveling and the boarding is full since November going into January. Stressful!

I'll definitely post pics when its up and running. I'm waiting on a light kit but its between $80 and $100 and I just don't have it right now. Hopefully by October I can really get started...I've started buying little things as I find them for the moment...I got a shipment of 10 pounds of base rock for the tank last night.

Its definitely hard...and with Diesel...he's 120 pounds and very afraid of people and it comes out as aggression. Not the best way to get him boarded. I usually have to beg my sister to come over and stay the weekend but she's so flakey that I really just don't trust her...

Awww....I'd totally watch him for you if I was in the area. Is he a boxer? DH loves loves loves Boxers. But we live in a condo so we don't have a huge space and no yard....so we decided on a med sized breed. Maybe when we get a house, we can have a big dog!

Diesel is actually a giant breed...English Mastiff...small for his breed but still large enough to do some damage...My legs are so bruised from getting smacked with his wagging tail.

He really is quite handsome...wish he wasn't such a jerk though. Totally not what the breed is supposed to be about.
