Hello everyone. Complete newbie to this forum, but was very excited to see fellow "hillbillies" (we're allowed to call ourselves this right!?). I am up in Wheeling.
I have two 55g planted tanks. Just suffered serious setback in that I lost four discus to a parasite breakout that I have been able to treat I the past. Bummed, BUT not deterred. Moving forward but am going to take a break for the costs of the discus.

Around here the word is that shrimp (unspecified kinds) are hard to keep and must be kept separate from fish. Is any of this true or am I to gather from previous remarks that some varieties do well with fish.
Off topic...Pem Corgi...My wife and I have lived with Pems both here and in Hawaii where we used them for cattle work and obedience trials. Our last Pem we had to put down last month - she had kidney failure, a 10-year old. We miss her!

I'm a new return to the hobby after a 30+ yr hiatus (have lived here in Berkeley county for 12 yrs, prior to that must admit to being a California native and fish were there!). Anyway currently have 2 fully planted FW tanks, my favorite is the one with 4 fresh water puffers, some gold tetras, a couple of Amano shrimp and red cherry shrimp (thought the puffers would grab them but they haven't).
My goal is to add a brackish tank and another FW tank (focus on cichlids who can tolerate our
water)am happy to trade the RCS offspring once my original stock really gets going. Also plants! Hope we all can stay in touch.

I know nothng about the shrimp currently being kept in the hobby. 40-some years ago I wrote an article for TFH on native freshwater shrimp in Hawaii (a simular species lives in caves in Tenn). The stores around here don't stock shrimp and badmouth them when I ask about them. A little info please....

Hey fellow Mountaineer. Glad to have you here. There are a few of us. I'm sure they will pop in sooner or later.
I don't do fish anymore but have converted to a shrimp guy.

Breeding is my hobby
I'm an old guy that started in fish keeping 60 years ago. Quite by accident my first tank, a ten, was also a breeding experience - Blue Gouramis. I've been in and out of the hobby ever since. My latest project was Firemouth Cichlids. I raised a tank full with no thought as to how to find a home for them. It seems that the stores here in north central West Virginia will sell fish and supplies but won't take fish even as a gift. Finally got someone over the radio to come to the house and take the tank full for distribution to friends.
I would very much like to meet other West Virginians and share stories and perhaps fish.
