Hello :)
 
Just dropping in to say hello. I recently am getting back into the Freshwater scene. I currently have a 30g long and an 84g Long setup and cycling. Anyway good to be here and looking forward to getting to know some of you on here and being a contributing member of the forum! :-P

Not sure yet. The 84g is 6' long x 15" wide footprint, so it would make a cool community tank. Its an odd size tank, I read on another site that that is a standard size aquarium in the UK, although I have never seen one before and cant seem to find them online anywhere.

I also have a breeding pair of Jack Dempsies sitting in a 10g that I may or may not keep. I'm kind of bored of the cichlids though. Although I've never bred them, so that would be a cool project. I'm super indecisive and cheap, so I'll probably put them in the 30g with "plans" to give them away.

I have never done a planted tank before, so I am most likely going to learn about it and try my first planted tank out. Who knows..

Hello and welcome to the forum :wave:

Have fun picking out your livestock. Makes me wish I had an empty tank to play with.

Idk, I've never named one of my tanks before. I was thinking of names when I began to add aquariums in the member tab.. hmmm.. I'll have to put some thought into it. I kind of like "Pandora" for the 84g.

I knowwwww, isn't that the best? Thats why I am taking my time with it. I think I may take down the 30g and add substrate, sand, and driftwood and get it planted first. I should get some pictures going. I am excited to get some new ideas on here as well.

Thank you guys for the warm welcome! This seems like the kind of place I was looking for, everyone seems really kind and helpful here. :-)

hmm.. I don't think so. I'll post some pics in another thread when I get farther along and maybe we can find out. :)
