Hi I'm David , I started my fish hobby in 1969 in phila with a Metaframe 10 gallon tank with a metal light that got so hot it would burn you set on a metal stand with a bubble up HOB filter and no GFI."Dam that was dangerous" lol. My mother and father always had fish when I was young . Moved to Joppatowne Maryland in 1978 where i bought my first BIG tank 34 gal. Stocked it with fish from all of the local fish stores "Back then there where atleast 10 with in 25 miles of Joppatowne. I've kept New world , old world , Saltwater for a couple years , Koi still. Now I breed mostly malawi cichlids Peacocks. Presently have 33 tanks wet with fish.and a 5000 gallon koi pond with over 30 koi in my yard. Join the CCA a few years back and its been a wealth of info and friendship.There are pictures of my fishroom online here.
