I think one thing that saves topics like this is besides those posting in it, nobody is going to read through 9 pages just to see who's a guy or gal, so lots of that stuff just gets lost. Phew! :thumb:

Now to try to aid in the covering up of Beca's last topic U-turn inducer

My first memories of fish came when I was around 5. We had a small tank filled with large goldfish, some around 6". When my parents went to sleep I used to get out of bed and grab this or that fish out of the tank and go into the bathroom, where I would fill up the sink and dumb the fish in so I could play with him! It was great fun for me and probably less for the fish but I never killed even one of those suckers. I must have been careful to match the temp and pH of the tapwater and added plenty of de-chlor first :roll:

Goldfish.......Solid rocks with fins.

:lol: I just thought it was a funny typo....
I know of black mamba's and green mamba's, I should do seeing as I'm a bushbaby, but uh, I wasn't pointing down the snake trail....

You guys are nuts!

:)

My first fish memory is in South Africa at my uncles plot of land, they had a huuuuuuge reef tank, that's about the only fish tank anyone in my family has ever really had. It was awesome, I used to just sit there and watch them cruising about.

None of my family, cousins etc really keep fish tanks, some do but none I ever really saw and even they were just the standard goldfish bowl. So for me I'm like a pioneer, a fish pioneer in the family. They all think it's great, but I'm nuts.

Or so I'm frequently told.

We got fish because my partners brother had some and I really liked the tank, it was a 20gallon which, compared to anything else I've seen since the reef tank at the plot, was awesome (ie NO other tanks :roll:) and that just inspired me. I loved the idea of creating a world for those animals and having them as fascinating pets....

Oh how little I knew, it all spiralled out of control and now here I am up to my eyeballs in fishsoup......

I couldn't be happier about it. In fact bring it on, the more the merrier :lol:. My first fish was a goldfish, called Michael, I won him at a fair when I was about 8 throwing darts at cards (also set me up to be a good hustler lol). I won three times in a row, cleaned the dude out lol but only took home michael. He lived for a good few years but my Dad kept him with him whilst I was off with my Mum travelling, so technically he was mine for about a week. I don't think that really counts.

Long story, cut short - the end.....

Hmm what rhymes with Quad?


This post is a quad.

Should be buried under sod.

By Beca's good buddy Rod.



And I am not allowing any "rod" references to come out of this! :D

Yeah forever as in Timed Out 3 times, which logically would mean the post wouldn't go through right?? Oh no, it persevered. Big time.
