Red face Hello everyone!

My name is Dylan. Finally a place where I can talk about my amazing fish hobby! (That I just recently got into!) Im currently in the process of setting up my second tank! My first tank ever was a 10 gallon, and my second in the making is a 75 gallon. Have a beautiful idea of what I am going to do with the 75. However, I am looking for great background plants.. that are not sword plants. :)

Hi Dylan, welcome to TFK! Looking forward to seeing how your 75 turns out. Did I tell you that we ALWAYS demand pictures??
I also have a 75gl and I love the footprint of a 75gl, as there are so many things you can do with it.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Dylan! Check out each of our aquarium pics. The Aquarium Tab under each of our names. You can post your own by updating your Aquarium LOG up on the top banner. Clink on the edit button to enter data and remember to save your changes (it doesn't look like it is, but just click it anyway. the button is weird) You can also posts pics right into a thread.
Also after 15 posts you can enter the chat room also above, it is often empty and you might have to wait a bit for someone to enter the room as well.
I also have a 75 Gal community tank. We look forward to pics.... (demanding bunch aren't we!)

Haha, wow! Thank you everyone! I am very happy to join a forum, and on fish! Believe it or not.. but I used to play World.. of.. Warcraft.. which was a very sad life. However, when I found my 10 gallon tank.. I cancelled my subscription and went head first into this fantastic hobby. I will definately get a photo for everyone to see, but not until I get my 75 done. Hehe, at Aunt Kymmie, I LOVE the 75 gallon. It is very big and has so much potential! I got 80lbs of the black eco complete substrate meant for plants, and live plants that will grow very quickly with the lightning I'll give them. The light has a strange tint to it, producing a fantastic showcase, but wont sacrifice the light needed for plants. Being a very creative person, I have so many ideas, and A LOT of time to work with.. (wont be setting my 75 up till June-July even when I already have the needed equipment.) I will be moving. :P
Enough of my rambling. Thank you for replying! I like this forum very much. LOVE reading about other experiences.. The one experience of someone bringing home fish from Petsmart, and her fish had fry in the bag.. hillarious. Loved it.

Hi Dillon and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. And to this amazing hobby.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
