Hi there! My husband and I are new to the forum. We aren't experts on our aquarium, but from time to time, we have questions and hope those here with a lot more experience, even experts, can give us direction. Thanks so much!

Just wanted to tell both of you also, that I really like your aquarium photos. They're really good! Wish my fish would "sit still" so I could snap a pic of them, but it's like they know what I'm doing and tell each other to race around and make me dizzy!

Wow! Good luck to you on that! I know that the varieties of plants, fish, and other forms of ocean life are much more interesting and beautiful. In a prior marriage, my ex-husband had a huge saltwater aquarium, but had to have an expert come in and take care of it and even then, we kept losing fish, anemones, urchins....you name it. He was a tropical fish farmer, one of the most successful ones in Florida. They specialize in Angels. He even does labwork on his own instead of using labs outside the farm to diagnose problems. Unfortunately, everything he knew about tropical fish didn't help him a lick with the saltwater ones. It's really a whole 'nother ball game! I can't wait to see your set-up and I just know you're going to have much more luck than we did!

Hello Smoopy

Welcome to TFK. We hope you like it here.

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