Hi all,
I've been lurking around here for a little bit now and decided to finally join! I'm a happily married stay@home mom w/ 2 little ones. My husband and I have had a few aquariums set up over the years(nothing too complicated), but the best one we ever had was going wonderfully for about 7 years, that is, until we went on vacation and left what we thought was a responsible friend in charge of our house. We came back to a swamp in our aquarium w/ all dead fish! It was a 30g w/ 2 huge angels, 3 silver dollars, and a pleco. We were soooo upset. Well, it's been dismantled now for 3 years and we are ready to get it running again. I'm itching to use live plants and I was really interested in Discus, but I don't need the extra work of all those frequent water changes, plus w/ a smaller tank, we would only be able to go w/ 2 of them, so that's a no-go. I am leaning toward a low tech planted tank. We'll see what happens. Thanks in advance for all the wonderful advice that I'm looking forward to!

Hi - Welcome to the AC.

I'm a mum as well, the tank is actually my 9 yr old sons. I'm only allowed to do the research (and occasionally feed the fish) which is what lead me to this great site. Enjoy!
