Hi all.

My names john, originally from London, but been living in Suffolk for thirteen years now.

Not kept birds for over thirty years. When i was in my late teens we had two Indian hill mynah birds, they were quite common then, but seem to be very rare now & expensive too, when you can find them.

I currently keep two large tropical fish tanks in my fully insulated/converted garage, which measures 12 x 8 x 8 foot high. In the past I have kept & bred all sorts of reptiles & amphibians, from dwarf monitors lizards & chameleons to poison dart frogs. I am in the process of building a 6 x 2 x 6 indoor aviary in there as well, with the intention of getting a couple of pairs of finches. I like all sorts of birds, but Gouldian, Bicheno &/or blue gap cordon bleus are what I would like to keep most atm. Will post again in the beginners section, as I do have a couple of questions I would like advice on.

Hi stormbird, thanks for the welcome. I have updated my profile as you recommended. Cheers for the heads up.

Regards the dartfrogs, I bred a couple of species of thumbnails from the Ranitomeya group lamasi & variabilis being the ones I can remember without looking it up. Although strictly speaking not true dart frogs, I also bred Golden mantellas, lovely little frogs though. Tbh, I didn't really keep darts for a great length of time, as I got so fed up with the livefood side of the hobby I sold them all. Same with the rest of reptiles I kept, just got fed up with keeping/buying/breeding live food, not to mention my electric bill :wacko::laugh:
