I have lurked this forum for a few years but decided to sign up because I want to keep natives in my tanks from now on.
I have a degree in wildlife management and forestry; I took several field biology courses and learned that field sampling and fishing are some of my favorite hobbies. It's difficult (and gross) to sample in downtown Boston, but I hope to move out of the city in the next year.
In the meantime, I can try to keep and observe natives in my fish tanks. The only native I have ever kept would be Heterandria formosa.
I look forward to learning more from your forum!
