    Hi everybody!

    So, a little about my background...

    I'm a pommy just moved over (since Jan) from the UK to be with my South African partner (spent most of last year here and fell in love with the country, got home sick when I actually went home.. So decided to do the big move across the globe!)

    My fishy background..

    - Started out with coldwater from childhood being constantly around fish tanks (some tropical too, but mostly coldwater)
    - Studied animal management (including horses, reptiles, domestics [cats, dogs, hamsters etc], amphibians, arachnids, aquarium fish [cold, tropical and salt waters])
    - Worked in a pet store for around a year whilst studying (specialising in reptiles but also spending a lot of time elsewhere, including the aquarium side!)
    - Currently have a tropical tank housing 1 male Betta, 3 Swordtails (1M, 2F) & 3 upside down catfish
    - Collecting our new male & female Bettas from an A grade breeder next week, for breeding/display purposes (including some rare colourings & tail types - very excited!)
    - Now looking into starting a 430L saltwater tank!

    Glad to be here! I was referred here from TASA after asking the freshwater people salt water questions! :p

    -Kay
