PostSubject: Oh what have I got myself into...   Mon Nov 04, 2013 10:25 am

Hello! I'm very pleased to be a new member of such a really good forum.  

So first I thought it would be nice to have a little tank with some guppies, then 3 years and 5 tanks in I thought I might try a catfish or something, so I investigated and it seemed BN's were a good idea, so I went to a local pet centre and ended up with two.....

Now you're all laughing 'cos you know what happened next Embarassed 

Ole Treeface (Geezer to use his correct name) just keeps proudly bringing batch after batch of new babies out of his cave and Kipper (Mrs Geezer) never says no....... so I have a gazzillion gorgeous little grandchildren on my hands!

Should I take Kipper out to another tank to just stop there being more? (I would feel heartless)
The first lot of tiddlers appeared on 13th Sept, when should I think about letting them go?



I must admit it's saving electricity as I can switch off the telly and just enjoy watching the little squidgers do their thing.

Fortunately I just lost my job so I can spend more time with the kiddies Laughing
