Hello All

Hello everyone. My name is Dewayne, and I am from Waynesburg, Pa. I am a proud father of 2, and they mean the world to me. I have had aquariums almost my entire life, but have never really delved to deep into the proper ways of doing everything. I recently came across a great deal on a 55 gallon tank, so decided to have a nice hobby with my son. He is 2 at the moment, and is absolutely in love with our gold fish that we have. I decided to do a little more color and set up the 55 with some tropical for his (and daddy's enjoyment). I love the way you can sit and be mezmerized by an aquarium for hours. I have over 300 channels on tv, and would rather watch fishies swim.

Welcome to the forum. I've been back in just over a year myself after a break of about 20 years. I started back up with a 55, it's a good size starter tank. What kind of fish are you stocking?

I do not have anything in the 55 gallon yet. It is sitting on a stand getting ready. I have a 29 gallon in my living room with 2 goldfish that we adopted off of my sister. They are mainly my wife's. I got the 55 so my son and I can do whatever we wanted. Mainly its daddy doing what he wants, but the boy says its his fishy tank.

I am slowly looking at different fish and ideas for the 55. I know I want color and movement.
