Hello Matt

Welcome to the forum. Are you going saltwater or freshwater? And how big of a tank?
Either way, you'll find lots of experienced and helpful people here.

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

Hi Mattcot, welcome to TFK! DO you have any pics of your set up?
Got any pics of Egypt? If so, I'd love to see them, we all would!!
(We all really love pics, right everybody??)

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