View Full Version : Very Glad I found this site

Greetings all.

I've been looking around (half-heartedly it seems) for an aquarium forum for a long time - finally found this site and it looks great. thumbs2:

I'm located on the west side of the Hudson River in the "Lower Hudson Valley" of New York. Good aquarium centers are not nearby - have to go south to Rockland County or New Jersey for specialized stuff....

I had multiple aquariums years ago - then life got in the way. About 4 years ago I 'inherited' my son's 20gal very basic setup when he went off to college... :ssuprised: I've done a few minor upgrades to it - filtration/aeration/moon light - but the fish have outgrown the tank/filters.
It contains multiple generations of barbs - about 11 in all - and a pleco that started out at about 2 inches and is now at or above 9 inches - he needs more room !!

So, it's time for me to upgrade significantly - and I'll be posting (hopefully in the proper forums) various questions and ideas. Looking to go to 90-110 US gal. - planted. A serious step up....

Looking forward to picking the collective brains of everyone. :c1:

Hi welcome to the site. The 90-110g is a nice huge move, that pleco especially they get mighty big.
