    Default Hi! I'm new here!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi! I'm Aimee! I've visited the forum before but I am just now creating an account. A little bit about myself and then I'll get on to my pets. I am a student at the University of New England, majoring in Secondary Education with a concentration in Marine Sciences and a minor in Aquarium and Aquaculture Studies. I am a student researcher in UNE's Aquaculture and Conservation Lab. I would love to eventually teach high school and AP level biology, and I want to put an emphasis on conservation and bringing live animals into the classroom, including reptiles!

    I currently have one reptile: my crested gecko Asha! She is a harlequin dalmatian, about 2 years old. I have her in a 18x18x24 Thrive enclosure. It is bioactive and live planted. She enjoys interacting with my family members and I have even used her for demos. She is an awesome little gecko!

    I also have tropical fish, including a betta, guppies, and corydoras. I have been working with fish for around six years and it was my introduction to pet keeping, but I love both fish and reptiles equally!

    I have a list of reptiles that I want, but at the top of that list is all of the large new caledonian geckos, especially saras! I would love to build more bioactive enclosures and maybe try breeding eventually. I am excited to interact with everyone on the forum!

    Welcome! pictures of you gecko are always great to see. Hopefully, once the current emergency is over, you'll get to the reptile show in Manchester NH. There's a professor at the U.of Maine (yes, I know it's a different school from yours) who works with fish and also keeps reptiles. His name is Ian Bricknell and he's very approachable.

    I have actually already been to the Manchester show! It was a lot of fun and I hope to go to the next show. I have heard of him and my college does some research with UMaine occasionally. Maybe I will get to meet him! I am enjoying Asha. Here she is!
