New from Plymouth, Minnesota
Hello! I have been reading threads on this forum for over a year. Started out with the Saltwater tanks and photos. Finally decided to be a member and actually be apart of the community. so with that said, HI!:-D

Background. Long but bare with me!

Started out with a 20 gallon tank when I was about 15. Didn't know what I was doing and didn't have any equipment for it. Never changed the water, yet somehow the 2 goldfish I had lived forever. Turned that into a Turtle tank about 2 years later for 5 baby snapping turtles. *Yes I know its a small tank for even 1 snapping turtle* When they got to about 6 inches long and were no longer needing my help catching feeder fish, I released them back into the pond where I found them. Not sure where that tank went.

3 years ago I went out and bought a 46 gallon bow tank. Turned it into a really nice Saltwater Coral tank. Had to sell it all due to lack of funds comming in. Got to keep the tank. Dad loved the tank so we washed it out and made it a freshwater tank which it still is to this day. It is currently at the parents house, Plan to pick it up hopefully this weekend and start fresh.

Anyways that is a little background. Looking forward to asking questions and posting pictures as I start up again. Been awhile since I took readings of the water and the terms.

Side note. Anyone in the minneapolis minnesota area that would know of a trustworth LFS? Only one I knew was a Saltwater store.

Welcome to the forum! Very interesting story. :-)

I can't help with the LFS location, as to being in Colorado. Good luck, though.

Welcome to, glad you decided to join up! :-D

Do you have any idea what you'd like to keep in the tank once you have everything set up?

I havent narrowed it down yet. I have found way to many different fish I want. lol as for pictures. I go to parents house today to disassemble the tank clean it and transfer it.

I am planning on selling the rockwork back to the LFS and getting some "new" rocks.
