Hello members! New to forum!

Just switched over from another forum because this one looks much nicer :D hopefully nicer people as well lol

Just some info on me:

-22 year old California College student
-I have been fish keeping for a year now and have learned new things at an exponential rate from lots of research and hands on (i.e. breeding angels/rams/zebras/ guppies/platies/gouramis, DIY co2 reactors and diffusers, etc etc etc)
-I have 5 running tanks as of now (one main tank and 4 10 gallons i use for growing plants, raising fry, quarantine, breeding pairs, etc)
-JUST recently upgraded from my 36 gallon bowfront community tank to a 75 gallon tall for my main show tank :D I am already putting together the new setup which will be a heavily planted discus tank. ( just started attaching my anubias plants to my driftwood forest today and purchased my UV sterilizer for it. Also am going to be purchasing my other plants very soon including the new substrate)
-Favorite all time fish have to be Discus, Angels and Blue rams.
-Once I graduate and actually have a solid career going for me I plan to switch over to the more expensive Salt Water :D but ill still keep doing my freshwater as well

ETC ETC ETC.

See you all around!

Hello and welcome to the forum

We'd love to see pics of the 75 gallon when you get a chance to post them :)

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

Thank you everyone, Glad to be here!

I will post pictures of the tank once its put together. I plan on making it a meadow of low growing Glossostigma and anubias and java fern taking over my mountain of driftwood i am styling to look like the dead roots of a river tree being overtaken by plant growth :D

right now its just got some regular gravel and driftwood in it with a couple sword plants. nothing special, but it will be :D

im ordering my 4 bulb t5 lighting system in the next day or so also :D

are you taking pictures as the tank matures,as this
sounds like it would make a great tank diary.
