Hi, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

Byron.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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

Welcome to TFK, Steve. I saw your user name and thought, "a new member from my area of the woods has joined the site!"
I thought your user name had to be a reference to the official marine state fish of California, the Garibaldi. But, I see your from Liverpool, which is even better than being from California! We're glad you joined us.

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

Hi Aunt Kymmie

I don't think you would swap our weather for yours. Or your wine!

I am originally from Nottingham (Robin Hood and all that!) and my team, Nottingham Forest are known as the Garibaldi Reds due to the fact they have worn red shirts in honour of Giuseppe Garibaldi since their inception in 1865. I wonder if your state fish is named after him aswell?

Hope I haven't bored you.

Cheers

Steve

Hi Steve,

Welcome to the forum. What a great tank size to start out with. I had a 45 gallon hex. to start which wasn't too shabby but I probably would have been ecstatic with a tank your size at the beginning.

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

Hi Romad

Thanks for the welcome. What a friendly place this is! I wish my tank was 125G but alas it is only 125 litres, about 33G. But hey, it fits and doesn't look out of place. Maybe 1 day with a house move I will upscale.

Cheers

Steve

I completely missed the mark on that one. Still a great size to start with. We just built a house and I'm already maxed out on tank space. I have a 75 gallon in the living room which is the showpiece and I'm still trying to figure out where to put the 6 betta tanks (2.5 gallons each). They are currently housed in the dining room. The 45 gallon will be set up again in my "girl cave" which remains to be built.
