its time to introduce myself and say thanks. i live in central texas with my very understanding and patient husband 2 daughters 4 parakeets and 2 dogs. i inherited a 30 gallon tank from a friend about four months ago. he told me he kept it well. it was a nightmare. way overstocked and extremely dirty. i havent had an aquarium for about 20 years. so i found this forum and started reading voraciously. thanks to your help my tank is now fully cycled crispy clear and beautiful. thanks again to all of you. thumbs2: i plan to get a 150 gallon in the near future. now you see why i said my husband is understanding and patient.:1luvu:

with all the water changes, checking my water perameters and finding good homes for most of the fish (there was close to 50 in the tank when i got it, including 2 common plecos,1 was 12 inches long the other about 8 inches) i havent had time for much else. i will have to dig out the camera and send some

Hello and welcome! Maybe you could get your husband to talk to my husband!:hmm3grin2orange:

I'll have my wife give him a call...she can explain how the aquarium keeping me busy keeps me from aggravating her...that's why she endures it so well...:hmm3grin2orange:
