Hello!!

I'm from Texas and just purchased a 72 gal bowfront. It will be delivered next week.

In the 90's I used to have several tanks but work required me to sell them all as I did not have time to maintain them.

I am retired now and want to make a real nice live plant tank with a few Angel fish.

I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions in the next few weeks.

Hi Capt. Roy - welcome to TFK

We're glad you found us and I'm looking forward to your progress and pictures (we love pics) of your new tank.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Good to hear getting some relief, our weather decided to go from 90 + one day to high 50's the next, cooler weather is nice, but almost a 40 degree difference is a little too much.

hello and welcome.
hope you'll be very happy here with us.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
