I briefly posted for a couple days as "Jeff in Chicago," but then decided that was too generic (not that this is much better, but oh well).
I grew up with a few different 10 gallon aquariums over the years - breeding (by luck) swordtails as a pre-teen, and then a variety tank in college...but I'm finally ready to expand my knowledge past the basic and really get into the hobby side of owning an aquarium.
I intend to set up a 30 gallon (subject to be larger by the time i actually get it) planted aquarium this summer, built around a pair of German Blue Rams (fish I've owned before and love).
I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions and learning as much as I can from the community here - so thanks to everyone in advance
Consider me a sponge for your collective knowledge. It's great to be aboard!
