I am new here, and as I guess this is my first post, I wanted to say hi to every one here.
I also wanted to say Many Thanks to all of the people who post and reply on this forum, I have learned so much already. I fear I will not remember it all, but I will keep trying.
I joined, then before posting I spent time going back to page 10 or 11 of
Anabantids and reading forward to the present posts. Wow! , I found not only great information, but surprisingly a nice atmosphere with truly friendly, helpful people.( several years ago I joined two dog related forums, I never posted just read,and the people were very nasty to one another. That had been my only experience with forums) This forum is a breath of fresh air.
I still have much reading to do in the other Index areas of this forum, but realized I will probably never quite catch up, but I will try, sooo...If I post with a question ( I have many questions) that has already been answered, first I apologize, second please correct me and send me where I need to go for the answers
It has been approx. 15 years since I last had aquariums. So before even putting water in the new tank I did read two books. Alas even with the books, and then adding water, equipment, betta females, then finding this forum, I find I have already made mistakes. :(
On a more positive note: I LOVE this API liquid master test kit :D :D :D , what I would have given 15 years ago to have found it.
OK enough from me, again Hello and Thank You. Will post with questions soon.
