Smile Hi everyone!

Hi TFK! My names Cody, and I'm 19, and I'm really into the fish hobby! July was one year since I started my own personal fish tank, and I've come a long way since then. Now I have 55 gallon that takes up all my time, but it's ok because I love it. I've recently just been hired by PETCO, so working there only fuels my passion for aquariums even more. I joined the forum because I'm always up for getting new ideas and learning new tricks, so I hope to learn a lot from everyone and possibly even help you in return!

Hi Cody,

Welcome to the forum. Your tank is awesome.
Good luck at your new job.

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

Thanks everyone! Recently all my plants died and those were the only ones that made it, so it's looking really empty right now. =( Hopefully they'll make a recovery and grow full again, and I hope to buy some more too. I'm sure I'll have tons of questions to ask you all on the other boards. Thanks for comments everyone. =)

Welcme to TFK, Cody. We're glad you joined us! Your tank looks great. What inhabitants are currently calling your tank home?

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

Hahah nooo Cornelius is a nickname that my closest friend in high school gave me once, and it stuck. But I've done a lot of research and think I've figured out what's wrong, but I'm going to ask about it here on the forum to make sure.

And thanks aunt kymmie! All the fish in my tank are listed in my signature. I have a bunch of fish from all around the world, but they all get along. =)
