My name’s Ben. I’m 12 yrs old, and I’ve only been in the aquarium hobby for ten months now. I started out with a goldfish tank . . . then got a small Betta tank . . . began to experiment with some live aquarium plants . . . and then things really got crazy! We now have thirteen tanks, have started breeding various livebearers, African Cichlids, German Blue Rams, Apistogramma Cacatuoides, etc. I even started up a little YouTube channel. And now, (level up) I am really excited to be a member of PVAS! I look forward to learning lots from everyone here. I plan to get involved in the BAP Program. We live waaaaay out in hillbilly western Maryland, so attending meetings is not always easy. But we’re definitely looking forward to coming out to meet Greg Sage in August. Here’s some photos of our tanks . . .
