I am new here to the forums, but not to the aquarium hobby. I have been in it for about 19 years. I like AquaClear power filters and undergravel filters with AquaClear powerhead's. I also like Visi Therm heaters. I use to like Ebo Jagger heaters but the last two I bought leaked water on the inside of them so I no longer trust them. I have had the least amount of problems with Visi Therm, As far as fish go I really have no favorite, they are all special in there own way. I am relatively open minded on most things and am willing to give a helping hand when I can. Hope to see all of you around the forums.
A note on undergravel filters, I normally don't recomend these to beginers in the hobby as overfeeding and not vacuming the gravel enough can cause problems with these filters.
