Ive had a 20 gallon fish tank sitting here at my desk for years. Sunday, while adding some water, a nice splash took out my keyboard. Had to wait a couple days to get up the cash to buy another keyboard, finally got one last night. It sucked not being able to post here or talk on msn with any friends, but its good to be back. Oh yeah, not moving the tank as I bought a wireless system, now I can just remove the keyboard while filling the tank.

Glad to have you back.  I thought you being gone was kind of fishy!   :D

I love fish tanks.  They are so soothing to watch.  Good therapy!

What kind of fish?  Tropical, saltwater?  I used to have oscars, but they got so big I had to give them to a friend with a 100 gallon tank.  I like watching the really aggressive ones when they are feeding - they move so fast!  I bought an asian eel once, too.  It would bury itself in the gravel and shoot out like a rocket to grab the fish swimming above.   Fun to watch, but not very healthy for its tankmates - I had to give him away to someone willing to put him in a tank by himself and feed it something cheaper than my tropicals!

I don't know that story sounds kinda "fishy"  ;)

I LOVE aquariums, and I used to keep a lot of fish.  Haven't done that for years.  Hearing you talk about it is reminding me of how much I miss it.  I used to raise viviparous (live-bearing) tropical fish - guppies, helleries, platies, mollies, etc. For some reason, never like rearing goldfish.
Watching ' FINDING NEMO' made me hesitate a bit about starting back up an aquarium!

Thats funny...I have a good friend up in Maine who LOVES Lobster. She says this ones lucky because hes from the "South" and, being from Pittsburgh, is probably polluted. I myself do not like seafood, again this ones lucked out.
