Hi all. I am new to this site but a rather experienced fish keeper. My main focus this time around has been livebearers, especially the wild type livebearers. I am using a Brachyrhaphis roseni right now for an avatar. It is a livebearer that I recently got and am trying to set up for breeding. From what I have been breeding, they are a bit difficult to breed so I hope to learn a lot while working with them.
My first tropical tank was set up in about 1955 and I bred mollies back then along with bettas, but I was away from tropicals for a while as an adult while my kids grew up and just got back into them about 6 years ago. I found endlers livebearers just a couple of years ago and soon got interested in all the other fish that I had never seen in the LFS. Sure enough, the fish that are available in a typical fish club got me on the road to learning about goodeids and Limias. After a while I realized that I had evolved into a livebearer fanatic with side interests in corydoras and a very few other egg layers. My corydoras collection includes all 3 pygmy types and a few of the more common ones that you can often find in fish shops.

Hi Susan. I run into you all over the place. At least 3 other forums that I can count quickly. I saw that you had Earl Blewett at your local club but I did not see you at ALA this year. Why not catch a ride with him and show up in Detroit?

Wish I could have but health problems prevent to much travel for me. Had a heart attack last month and not able to do much walking.

It's great having Earl in our local club. I get fish from him all the time. Even outbid him on the killies last weekend.
