Hello to all!
I started keeping fish around 1988 and took my tanks down in 1992. I can't really remember why, I think I got to lazy to maitain them. At that time I had a 30 gallon long and a 20 gallon tank on a stand that held them both. Within a week the 30 gal had a crack (nobody did it, I asked) and I gave the 20 away to my oldest son.
I started playing this game called Happy Aquarium on FaceBook. The next thing I know I'm browsing craigs list everyday until I find something that wouldn't break the bank. I picked up a 35 gal hex with the hex stand, Marineland Biowheel 200, natural gravel substrate, heater, Python, all kinds of food, API master test kit, Tetra Aqua Safe, heater, lid, light . All for fifty bucks. All I had to do was add water, and eventually some fish.
I'm all ready looking for something bigger. I would love to get a 55 gal for the foyer (or what ever you call that little room just inside the front door.)
Anyways, it's great to be doing this again, look forward to meeting ya'all in the forums.
Bye form Austin TX,
