Hi I'm new to fishforum

I live in northern Indiana, at the tip of lake michigan. I got my frist tank at the age of 10, 1952. I've had at least one tank set up for the 57 years that followed .Right now I have 9 tanks running, 5- 40 gal. 3- 55 gal. and 1-125 gal., all planted freshwater tanks. When I started all the fancy filters etc. were not invented yet, so to keep a healthy tank ,plants were the way to go, I guess it stuck, cause I still have more plants then fish. Yes the fish are HAPPY. keeping some ciclids in a planted tank takes a bit of work, but course gravel and valisneria makes it doable.

Have a good fish day FISHMAN8181

Welcome to the forum! Do you have any pics of your tanks that you can share? We LOVE pics.

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

You sure are ambitious when it comes to tanks. It's a great hobby isn't it?

Welcome to the forum.

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