New here but OldMan elsewhere
I recognize a few of the names here from other forums. Just spotted Lupin and saw Mgamer in the classifieds. I have been in fish keeping on and off for over 45 years. Until recently, raising children has kept me too busy. I am starting in again and have 3 tanks set up and running. A 125 has the typical fresh water community of small tetras, live bearers and a few others such as my pair of marbled angels. The 29 is for my kribensis. I thought it might be nice to breed them since they look so good to me but so far all I have is a batch of fry that didn't last long with 7 fish in the tank. The 10, the last started out as a small guppy tank to keep my wife happy but has ended up as a holding / sick tank. So far it has not been needed thank goodness. I am in the process of setting up 4 more by building 2 home made stands. Today I stain the first and tomorrow, I begin to assemble it.
My second and until recently my only real hobby is making sawdust. The smell of fresh cut wood is almost as relaxing as the sound of running water and bubbles. At least it is to me. Buiding my own stands lets me combine 2 of my favorite things.
