View Full Version : Hello from Alpharetta!

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am relatively new to the hobby. It all started back in November when I saw a 20g aquarium at a thrift store for $20 and thought "hey, a fish tank might be fun!" I started out with a ryukin goldfish that I got from petsmart for $12. After that I was hooked! I have learned SO much about fish keeping since then by researching online, watching YouTube videos, and joining online fish communities.
I now have a 55g tank with 5 fancy goldfish, a 40g brackish tank with a green spotted puffer fish, a 10g tank with a male veiltail betta, and another 10g tank with a dwarf gourami.

I'm so excited to find a community of local fish keepers! :)

Welcome!! Sounds like you got bit by the collector's bug.

You've got to come to the meetings. http://www.atlantaaquarium.com/content.php. I always get a good laugh when I go to the meetings, for the group is very humorous. There is a talk by someone and then a mini auction. If there is 1 April 5 there probably won't be much for auction, for there was a big auction last Saturday in Forest Park.

By the way I once got a 20G with rod iron stand for $20 on craigslist.org
