    General about me: I grew up in Nothern Brisbane, then just after our wedding my Hubby got posted (army) to VIC. Spent almost 4 years there, and now i'm home. I never want to leave again, except i may move to Tassie, i luv it there, so relaxed & beautiful. The only good thing about VIC was that we were in Central VIC, great for gorgeous drives to Rutherglen(wineries), Yarra Valley(wineries), Bendigo.....you get the picture. I work all week and spend my weekends living it up, that is the good thing about not having kids, we go away all the time & just go out & have fun.

    Lives: Darwin, Northern Territory

    Work: Legal Secretary

    Fave Foods: Love all types of food

    Fave Drink: Water

    Fave Alcoholic Drink: Red wine, Bailey's, Barcardi & Coke

    Tanks: 215L 4ft tank with the following:

    Silver Shark - bought from Livefish
    3 Albino Corydoras - bought from Livefish (1 of which was successfully hatched and is growing rapidly)
    6 Black Widows - bought from Livefish
    2 Clown Loaches
    6 swordtails (2 of successfully raised fry)
    1 Dalmation Molly (a successful fry - all the adults have died over time. Don't have much luck with Mollies so not getting them anymore)
    12 neon Tetras
    12 head & taillight tetras
    3 Angels
    Did have 6 Cochus Tetras from Livefish but they all eventually died. Might try them again at some stage as I really like them.

    I also have 1 small tank with a Betta in it called "Clive'. He's the only Betta that's managed to live for over 2 months (I've had him for 12mths), and a small tank that I breed those pesky snails to feed to my loaches.

    And I've converted a larg pot into a water feature on the verandah and that's got 6 native blue-eyes in that.

    Fave Music: Just about anything except the hip-hop and head-banging stuff.

    Lives: Tuggeranong, ACT
    Status: Married, with two children, 8yr boy & 6yr girl
    Work: Human Resources Manager

    Fave Foods: Spicy!
    Fave Drink: Water
    Fave Alcoholic Drink: None really (anymore)

    Tanks: 4ft (170 litre) planted community tank with various tetras, various danios, 5 x glass cats, 2 each of khuhli loaches, clown loaches, bristlenose and pepper cats, veiltail angels, silver sharks, and an elephant nose. Also a male/female betta who will move to the 2ft when it is fully cycled.

    2ft (60 litre) planted currently cycling with some tetras and a bn. When the bettas move in, hope to get some shrimp and albino bn as well. This is to be a betta breeding tank.
    (Have succumbed to MTS, much to my wife's dispair)

    Fave Fish: Elephant nose, bettas and kuhli. Also have a soft spot for the various catfish. The danios are fun, cheerful fish to have around.

    Fave Music: Mostly 70's & 80's including Alan Parsons Project. Latin american music.

    Things I couldn't live without: Family and friends.
    Things I miss: Thought I couldn't live without ballroom/latin dancing (15+ years worth) but am adjusting to that loss (wife had an accident and can't dance anymore, and daughter is not up to it yet), and like some of the others, my horses. Used to breed arab/palomino but had to give that away when I went to uni, same as all the poultry I use to breed and show. Hmm, think I see a pattern here, hence the quick addiction to fish.

    Travel: All but W.A. Most recent was Heron Island in March 09 for 10th wedding anniversary - now that is a place to dive/snorkel for fish!
    Overseas: US/Canada, New Caledonia

    Myanmar(Burma) use to be Monland. Along time ago our country was conquered by the Burmese, so now it has become Burma. We have become a minority in our own country, it is quite sad <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> . My family left Burma because their was too much fighting, and my dad was a rebel fighting against Burmese opression, so my mum and i were always in danger.
