    I’ve noticed a lot of new members have joined TASA lately - fantastic, the more the merrier :thumbup:

    Please don’t forget to introduce yourself, either here or start a thread under New Members. To say hi, tell us more about yourself/ your setups, show us pics (we love to see), ask questions should you have any etc etc. Nothing has to be perfect (it rarely is anyways, and the journey is interesting too).

    Don’t be shy, and chime in on other threads too - even if just to encourage. And don’t just surface when you have a crisis ;) (perhaps it’s just my personal pet peeve when people do that :tt2:).

    Location - Brits (North west province)

    Number Of Years In Hobby - .....Forever

    Fish Keeping Profile - Have kept fish in aquariums and ponds since I could walk, From Kois and fancy goldfish to Brackish species, am a HUGE fan of loaches particularly hillstream loaches...but generally all loaches.. and the oddballs like puffers and mudskippers, by mid 2016 I had 13 aquariums and 2 quarantine setups running, with 19 different species. A new start now with 2 aquariums, working on No3, I really enjoy the DIY route with lighting, filtration etc... I would like to, one day keep discus, freshwater stingray and a marine tank with nemos and anemones / corals.

    Favourite Fish Species - Loaches, puffers, gobies....there are soo many, cant pick one

    Favourite LFS - cant really single one out...Petstop or animal kingdom...there are many

    Aquatic Likes - Big simple planted natural looking aquariums

    Aquatic Dislikes - Goldfish, oscars and clown loaches living in tiny tanks, these guys grow huge..do some resurch! ..OH and bettas in jars cant even look at them in LFS

    Aquatic Achievements - Just happy to be able to provide a healthy and nice looking home for some really different and difficult to keep fishes..

    Non-fish related fact - You can never have too many aquariums:lol:

    Other hobbies - ...are there other hobbies;)...

    I just realised I have never done one of these :p So here goes...
    Forum Name - Logz (Logan)

    Location - Cape Town

    Number Of Years In Hobby - On and off for about 18 years now

    Fish Keeping Profile - I have kept a huge variety of mostly smaller fish (I had MTS in my younger days and space meant small tanks only) but I am definitely an all natural person, planted mainly.

    Favourite Fish Species - Very tough choice but going for Red Tail Cats

    Favourite LFS - Sam's has been my go to ever since I started out (post my first goldfish from Stodels…)

    Aquatic Likes - Gotta say its natural, but with clean neat lines (unlike my tank...) with a thriving community styled stock

    Aquatic Dislikes - Fish in unsuitable setups... its just painful to see

    Aquatic Achievements - Its been over a year since I last forgot to do a WC... achievement of note.

    Non-fish related fact - Despite being a fountain of random information, I am really bad at pubquiz.

    Other hobbies - I play hockey... between fish, work and hockey there is no time for anything else..

    I (fortunately for everyone on here) don't have a pic to post at the moment, so sorry :p

    Ahoi! New members... yes you! We see them names popping up, but you’re way too quiet :)

    You may have been in the hobby for ages, or for a day, or still doing research for your first tank. Say hallo, introduce us to your tank(s), pics please, start a thread and chime in on other threads :thumbup:
