A new member saying HI!

Hello everyone.

Just joined and I'm excited to learn more about this hobby and meet other fish fan. As you can see from my signature ... assuming I did it correctly I'm a big barb fan. Looking to eventually get a 120 gal mostly barb tank heavily planted with soil / dirt, PFS and gravel.

My current tank was set up in Feb so it's relatively new ... and I've got the Brown Algae to prove it!

Glad to be a member, hope to hear from you all.

5 BlackRuby, 4 Albino Tiger, 4 Odessa, 3 Tiger, 2 Green Tiger, 3 Denison, 2 Cherry, 2 Gold, 2 Checkered BARBS + 4 Zebra Danios, 1 Red-tail Shark. Looking to add 4 Five Banded Barbs

Hi Barbman :)

Welcome to TFK from a fellow barb lover. I'm a big fan of my green tiger barbs (fondly called little monsters).

They're really feisty and are the only ones to nip at my arms when I do plant maintenance.

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

Welcome Barbman to TFK. Sounds like a fabulous project.... hmmmm 120 gallons..... that puts my 75er to shame.

Thanks for the welcome!

Fiesty, obnoxious, just a bully! ... oh wait .. I'm describing my son's Redtail Shark! I'm beginning
to think they've been with each other so long ... my Barbs are forgetting how to act like obnoxious,
fiesty Barbs! .... I suppose I could toss an angel or betta in there to see if they remember

Ok ... maybe not!

Actually ... they do show that streak usually in the evening ... they are fun to watch ... especially when males go at it for dominance of the shoal!

My Green Barbs are my favorite as well, followed by the BRB and then the Denisons.

First off ... Thank you all for the warm welcome!

That's ok ... in my mind my future 120 gal puts MY 75 to shame

Yeah I just set up a 75 gallon last May and keep looking at it thinking that the wall would look better with a 125 gallon in front of it

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
