Meet KrazE1: Lover of naps, coffee and fish

KrazE1 has been on the site for just about a year now and already she is making her mark! She was a Runner Up in the Sizzlin’ Summer AnswerThon, and she’s already a graduate of TIP, our premier program that trains members to become Supervisors on the site. Off the site, KrazE1 is an expert on freshwater fish. She loves coffee, and her naps…caffeine apparently doesn’t interfere with her sleep! Read more to learn about this Gold Contributor!

What is your first name? My first name is Kim.

What is your username and how did it come about?

My username is KrazE1 and it’s pronounced as “crazy” because sometimes I am. I thought it was just an interesting spelling.

Where in the world do you hail from and what makes this place special?

I’m from Ontario, Canada. Our crazy weather makes it a special place.

How did you discover

I had been looking for a fish item online to purchase, and I noticed a question and answer for the site.

What enticed you to join our community?

When I first entered the site, the question I came upon had incorrect information regarding goldfish. I couldn’t possibly ignore it, so I just had to join to edit the response. Then I found even more questions about goldfish that needed answers, and I’ve been here ever since.

How did you become an expert on fish?

I’m certainly no expert, as there are always new things to learn, but after more than 15 years of keeping fish, and doing lots of research, it has helped me learn many things to keep my fish healthy.

What is your favorite fish?

That would have to be a Calico Ribbontail. It is a type of goldfish, but it has very long fins which exceed its body in length. It almost looks like Linus dragging along his comfort blanket when it swims.

What else can you tell us about goldfish?

5 year old Spot
5 year old Spot

Goldfish actually grow quite a bit when they are given the recommended amount of space and care. The fish in the picture is named Spot, and he is just over 5 years old. I am just barely holding him in my hand, so you can appreciate his size.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a house cat. Cats can nap all day!

Do you have any pets?

Silly O
Silly O

I have two cats who are true brothers. One of them, named Oreo, frequently makes a point to stare me down when he wants me to give him attention, instead of sitting on my laptop.

What is your favorite type of music?  

My favourite types of music are heavy metal, hard rock, punk, and rock. My favourite band is Nirvana.


What was the last song you listened to?

Volbeat, about Lola Montez.

What is your favorite song?

It’s a tie between two songs for me: Metallica’s Fade to Black, and Judas Priest’s Before the Dawn.

What do you find most challenging as an Supervisor?

It’s a challenge to merge the questions that are asked repeatedly when there are already answers for questions much the same, but just worded differently or misspelled.

Where is one place in the world you would love to visit and why?

I would visit Scotland because I absolutely love everything related to castles and medieval times and there is much to be seen there.
