Ah, hello all.

Glad to be aboard. Was heavy into aquariums years ago and now that I have retired (except for working as a wildlife rescue tech) I am again getting back into the hobby. I am just getting started. What triggered the re-start was when I decided to breed mosquito fish during the winter to assure plenty to reintroduce to my koi pond in the spring. This time I'm planning to have several (unknown quantity) of smaller (10 to 20 gals) and concentrate on reaching breeding conditions of some YTBD varities. I am starting with real soil as the sub and have one 20 and two 10 at the present time. My desire is to make them as natural in a self maintianed eco setting as reasonable. .. thus the soil, ours here is black -clay based- loam. so far it seems to work well with the plants and few fish (mosquito as a test control - because I have them).

If any others are out there, I'm a Certified Texas Master Naturalist in the Elm Fork chapter.

Ok, may be the wrong place to ask.. but I haven't seen a better place.. How do I make the forum font larger.. it is on my screen about 1/8" tall and that is mighty small?

Anyway, I'll be monitoring and chiming in breeding, substrates (real soil), and other various topics. Will be telling how my "Real Soil" experiment is coming along. (two 10's are clear as crystal and stable, 20 is too early in cycle to know yet)

Sorry if there are mis-spelled or wrong words as I can bearly see the text to know if they are correct.. having to trust my typing skills.

Thanx.

Howdy, Welcome to TFK. As far as making the font larger, you can do what I do. Hold down the left control key, and at the same time use your mouse wheel to scroll up or down. Doing this will make your font larger, or smaller, to whatever size you prefer. Doing this works in any application, not just forums.

Yeah, I understand the mouse wheel thing, but I use a track ball (one in each hand) and don't have a wheel... but, thank you kindly for the come back! I have the font view set as "Largest" but the fourm ware over rides that setting.

FYI .. for what it is worth.. I am doing better with this forum text wise on Goggle Chrome as a browser. ?? I use several browsers and it seems to do best on here.
