Hello from South Africa
Hello TFK. Im a novice fishkeeper from South Africa. Ive been lurking around TFK for about 3 weeks and found the articles and posts on here most resourceful. At the moment i dont have an aqaurium, but im am doing research for a new setup. I have had previous experiences with fishkeeping so not all is new. I believe this website will be of great assistance for my new found passion for fishkeeping. and that it will be a blast here in TFK. :D
Thank you very much
hello and welcome. :-)
Welcome to TFK, Pikkie. We're glad you decided to join us and leave your lurking ways behind, lol. We'll have fun following your tank setup/build. What type of fish are you considering?
Welcome to the forum.
Hi Pikkie :wave:
We're glad you decided to come on board. Are you thinking of saltwater or freshwater?
Welcome! I can't wait to hear all about your new build. Tell us more... what are you thinking for tank size, fish, salt or fresh?
Hi and thanks for the hospitality. lol. Wont lurk around anymore. I believe ill have just as much fun following existing member's setups as youll have following mine.
I am a fan of planted FW setups, but did not have much success with them so far. Thats why im doing some research now. As i want i planted aqaurium, i havent really considered what fish i want to keep, maybe ill opt for a densely planted thank with a school of neons, or a community.
I want to get a 4 Foot setup ( 48"x23.6"x17.71", LxHxW), approximately 65 Gallons. Not exactly sure about what lighting i want to use because ive read about the WPG rule that should be only used as a guideline, and i wont have the budget for too expensive CO2 systems used in hi tech planted aqauriums today. And for filter choice im considering to use a sump, but unsure about the return pump and sump design. But at least i have lots of time to research and figure things out.
I am currently shopping around for a tank. almost look like ill be getting a better deal buying a new tank than a second hand one, but ill be patient, since im only planning to set up in january next year.
