    Hi guys,

    I am new in this forum. I have been keeping fishes for about 7 years and countless number of tanks and fishes. :D

    Then recently I got bored breeding every single species I own and started writing an web application instead!

    I'm a geek at heart in both aquarium hobbies and computers/gadgets. :)

    I had to do a major relocation (from Montreal to Toronto) so I had to get rid of most of the fishes in the process but I am getting back into it again.

    For starters, I have a tank split between Lamprologus Stappersi and Julidochromis Transcriptus. Rocks on one side, shells on the other side. :)

    I am setting up a second tank, thinking about raising a rarer shrimps and snails for a change.

    As for the app, it's AqAdvisor. It allows you to experiment with your stocking ideas. I have been developing it for about 1 year and pretty much consumed all of my spare time! :D

    Thanks! :D

    Now I'm jealous, we're getting ready to go to work (or at least that is what I SHOULD be doing :D ). It's great having you here and once again, that app is great! I'm off to get ready for the work day. Sleep well, whenever you manage to get to bed that is, TASA is rather addictive :blink1:

    Hey! Torronto! One of my friends was just over there for Christmas! The rest of his family moved out there years ago, and he hadn't seen his brother for 5 years! So it was a well overdue visit!!

    Anyway, Welcome to South Africa (although I'm originallly from the UK! Been out here 5 years now!)!

    Obviously you sound pretty clued up on the fish, but TASA is a great place to learn more (you never can know too much!!) and an even better place to share your knowledge!

    As Vee says, this is incredibly addictive! So be warned!

    Cheers!
    Big G!

    Welcome dude.

    Nice to have some international blood here.... would be really awesome to hear some of your set ups, as I think some of the stuff that is banned in SA would be allowed in the states? (Shrimp?)
