My husband and I are new to the world of aquariums. My husband is an avid scuba diver and has always had a love for aquatic life. I have slowly become engrossed with the life style as well. A few years ago we moved and have not had the chance to enjoy the sea as much as before and therefore decided to bring the ocean to us. After lots of research and planning, we decided that while having a salt water tank would be awesome we would start out with a tropical freshwater tank instead. Therefore, two months ago we purchased a 55 gal tank for our living room.
Thus far it has been an adventure. I have lived on these forums trying to figure out each new problem as it came along. Finally I decided to join.
