Talking Long time lurker, now member...

Hey everyone my name is Jeff, I have been hanging around here for awhile and thought I should finally join in all the discussions. I always had aquariums growing up, and now I am working on building up my 55 gallon once again.

Here is a quick picture of it, I know it is kind of sad right now...



I wish I had read first then purchased all my equipment, but that's life.

Current Setup
55 Gallon Tank
(2) Ebo Jager 150W Heaters
Marineland Emperor 400
Coralife T-5 Aqualight (Dual 28W, 6700K Bulbs)

The "dream" is just to have a clean planted tank that the fish and I both love. Anyway just wanted to drop in and say hey to everyone. I am still learning everyday, I know this forum has a ton of great people and I hope to meet many of you.

Thanks for reading & having me in the community !!

Hello and welcome.

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

hello and welcome.
glad you decided to speak up,i often wonder what all you lurkers are doing lol
you will indeed get to chat with great people here,and they will be able
to help you get where you want to be with your tank.
and you have a very nice size to work with too.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
