    Hello fellow Hobbyist ,
    I've been doing this for about 40 yrs on and off and love the challenge the tank life brings a constant growth and changes [icon_cool.gif] Starting off with a 37 gal tank and see where it leads . Staying with tropical but always like brackish water fishes . I've salt water in the past but trying to avoid that spectrum for a while ; But so much has changed the last 10 years .

    Hey Greenteals Welcome, Boy know what you mean! I was out of the hobby for 25 years . 4 months ago I got a 29 gal and the next thing you know I now have 6 tanks. The computer has really changed the hobby. I'm on the Southside of Richmond
