I'm returning to aquariums after a 4+ decades hiatus. I am now retired and I needed something to do and be. So I chose tropical tropical fish.

I started with a 29G tank for space and financial reasons - I'm in a 500 to 600 sq. ft. one bedroom apt having downsized from a a 1600 sq. ft. house. I have 2 HOB filters (penguin 200 & Aquaclear 50), crypts, anubias, Java fern, vals, swords (assorted),gravel, heaters, recently replaced Aqueon hood with glass canopy and Dual T5HO fixture.

I'm experimenting with foods,etc. and enjoying every bit of it.

Thanks for listening.

Welcome back - I had a similar gap in tropcial fish keeping, and you'll be surprised how much more is known now about water conditions etc. and the ability to monitor and adjust. What I've found is you can go as deep as you want iin understanding the chemistry and biology of the tank. Much less guess work now on how to respond to fish that are not thriving. Have fun!

Irish, European, and Cherokee myself! I'm nice and sweet, but I got my temper from my Irish roots, so it's a BAD idea to piss me off ;-)

I am also new to the site. Two years ago I started messing around wanting to breed fish now I have 4 55 gallon tanks, 1 75 gallon tank, 3 20 gallon tanks, 3 30 gallon tanks, 9 10 gallon tanks, and one 5 gallon tank. I am breeding angel fish and love it. It keeps me busy but I am having a lot of fun with it and still learning.
