Hey from North Carolina!

I just wanted to say hello! I’ve been browsing the site for the past week and it always amazes me…just when you think you know quite a bit about a subject, there is so much more to learn!
I’ve kept tanks, ranging from 5 gallon to 29 gallons off and on for 30 plus years. I currently have a 29 gallon tank with mostly guppies and tetras; I usually go for the tropical community aquarium. The live bearers, I have to say, are my favorites.
I am getting a 55 gallon tank and stand for Christmas and I found this site while researching the lighting and filter I want to purchase for this new aquarium.
I look forward to learning a lot from you and this site!

Hello Donna

Welcome to the forum. You'll find lots of information and helpful people here. Kudos to you on the 55 gallon. My addiction started with a 45 gal. hex that my bf gave me for Christmas 2 years ago.

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

Hi Donna and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Glad you found us.

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]

something seeded for you next filter.
