    Hello all,

    New to the forum and thought that I would post a few pics of my 50 gallon tank that I got set up a few days ago. I'm in my 50s but have had aquariums since I was a kid, even raised and bred angels in my teen years and sold them to the local pet shop. I had a tank up until about 10 years ago when I sold it, but have just recently got the bug again and set up a new tank. Really glad to be back in the hobby again! As you can see, it is a freshwater setup, and I will again have angels after it cycles. I have a mix of live and artificial plants at the moment. So, enough jabbering from me, here are the pics!

    Welcome to the forum!
    you have a nice tank there. please be advised though that
    the dracaena/lucky bamboo will likely die if completely submerged, as it is actually a terrestrial plant.

    Very nice looking tank. I can't tell for most of the plants which are real and which are fake but, I don't think those dark green plants you have in there are fully aquatic plants, but I could be wrong.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I wondered about that bamboo. I got all the live plants at Petco and they were all submerged there, but then again, who's to say they knew what they were doing either, eh? The dark green ones are live ones as well and seem to be healthy stock, but then again, I don't know how long they were in the Petco tanks before I bought them. So I guess we'll see.
