when i recently started my 75 gallon, it took a good while before I put in my first fish. my mom, who loves the show, wondered why it took me so long to do this when the guys on tv does it in no time. I had to explain everything you guys talked about here, the cycle times, and basically what they dont tell you on tv. for those that dont know it does send the wrong message.
for me to have so many tanks, I just cant "look at them" and not be involved with them. I dont care how much money I have. that's why alot of these tanks fail. people want the pretty tanks but dont know a thing about them otherwise.
My name is Deb and I have MTS
