Hi Friends!
I just joined MFK and the Minnesota Aquarium Society (MAS) this week. I am really excited to get involved and meet some new friends with similar interests at the Aquarium Expo! - https://aquarium.mn/2019

My history with fish keeping has been on and off over the years. In my 20s I kept neons and bred guppies. I am currently only keeping freshwater species and am planning several breeding projects. You can check out my current stock list below.

I have always had a strong fascination with marine aquatics, especially reef setups. Although I haven't set one up yet, I have recently been collecting tanks (a 90 gallon display and 55 gallon sump/refugium) and a protein skimmer to get started.

Some pics here: https://tinyurl.com/jers-fish-pics

Fish List:
Albino Corydoras - Corydoras aeneus [x7 unsexed breeders]
Siamese Algae Eater - Crossocheilus oblongus [x4 unsexed]
Betta - Betta splendens [x4 - Adult Males]
Cherry Shrimp
Unidentified Snails

Tank List:
200 (?) Gallon Outdoor Pond
90 Gallon
75 Gallon
55 Gallon Tall
55 Gallon Hex
20 Gallon Tall
10 Gallon [x4]
2 Gallon Betta Falls

ON ORDER:
Pinoy Blue Angelfish
Red Ramshorn Snails
Various Plants

Wants:
German Blue Ram
White Cloud Minnows

Hey Passionfish,

Yes, I am!
I wasn't aware that there was a local community of fish keepers until this week.
So, I was ecstatic to make this discovery.
