    Blue damsel, I started with salt water in the 1980s dumbest thing I ever did... wait... no it's not but this is a family area so lets stick with the starting with salt water being the dumbest..

    In the early 1970's a common goldfish...that my mother said if I could read the sign I could get a treat!!! "free gold fish with the purchase of bowl, tank...etc" We started out with two commons in a fish bowl...you know the candy jar type!!! must been max 5 gallons with some flake food and no filter or lights...etc....no water conditioner...no heater.... with 2x common's... well I am sure we had a 10 or 20 gallon with in a month or two with a corner box filter...then upgraded at some point to a 50 gallon with the cool chrome boarder with the undergravel filter....

    Well needless to say, I am happy there are places like this for people to learn and ask questions about fish, and not learn the hard way or the way the store employee suggests you keep your fish....

    Like I did all those many years ago...

    Cheers

    Two angels, two zebra danios, and one blind cave fish. All five bought with a $2 bill in 1968.

    I like this thread. Scary thing is I dont remember. I do recall a Longnose Butterfly being one of my first most memorable marine fish. Regarding FW I recall making a multitude of mistakes. IE:Green spotted puffers with ghost shrimp, Kenyi Cichlid being sold for my community aquarium later ending up in a 10 gallon which ended up attacking my family cat every time he went for a drink. And people wonder why I am so honest in recommending fish!
