NEW to this SITE !!!

Everyone....I am new to this site but I am not really new to the hobby.....
My wife and I were stationed in North Dakota we had a 100 gallon tank..... LOVED it .
we raised for 4 years some of the biggest BALLA SHARKS, Silver Dollars, Pleco's anyone
has ever put their eyes on.. ( lol )
Well we are no longer in the service after doing the IRAQI thing ( Desert Storm )
we moved back to our Home Town in Kentucky..... might everyone know the Ky. Derby....
Church hill downs..... Most popular Horse Race of all times... any ways.. we
got the bug once again......looked around.. and came up with a 30 gallon that someone
no longer wanted.. so bought the entire package from them.. set it up.... and now it has
made a Great home for some African Cichlids.
the are doing very well the tank is only 4 mths old but we wanted a bigger tank more like
the one we used to own..... so more looking around we did... we found a Great deal on the entire
set up.. ( With Fish even ) woooo hoooo... so now we have a 75 gallon community tank.....
but that was not enough.. LOL..... we just purchased yet another Tank.... 120 Gallon
which is not set up just yet.....( Still working on the Stand ) will show pics of this one Soon.,...
but I will post pics of the 30 gallon and 75 gallon now.
Just want to say thanks everyone for this site I have been a lerker for about a week or so now
and I finally joined, I like the personalities here at this site....... and hope to get to know you all better...

Welcome to the forum! Glad you decided to join and get back into the hobby.
Your tanks are beautiful. I'm curious as to your stock, can you list what species you are keeping?
As far as your 120 (how exciting!) why not set up a build thread? I love following along as members set up tanks. Once again, welcome aboard!

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

Welcome to the forum.

And THANK YOU for your service to our country.

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

Welcome to the forum. Very nice tanks!
I would suggest removing the plastic pots from the plants in the first photo and pushing the roots down into the substrate. Might also consider some root tabs such as API root tabs to help give the plants a nutrient boost until fish waste can help contribute same.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
