Hello everyone!

Love this site so much that i just had to join. I have reffered to this site countless times and have read some great info and oppinions. Had my first tank set up for two years ( 29 gal ). Then took it down for a break for a few months. I then worried that maybe I was just one of those many people that try it then decide that it's too much work and sell everything. Instead I stored everything away with great care and a few months later to my delight I soon started to sorely miss my beautiful water world and all my little friends that were so entertaining. So I'm back [in this hobby] with even more enthusiasm than before! I'm in the process of setting my tank back up, only this time I am determined to go planted!! Wish me luck guys and girls!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It's up from the basement, rinsed in hot water sitting on the cabinet/stand along with all the equipment waiting for me to carefully decide on the lighting upgrade. Taking it slow and carefull this time with my decision making. At the same time, one should never obsess about stuff, one must at some point make a decision and just ride out the results.Deciding between spending a little more money and more work (CO2) to grow almost anything I want, or to go the easy less expensive route and settle for the challenge of growing what I can creatively which sounds tempting when you have two small children. I have already purchased pool filter sand. Thinking about either having a nutrient rich bottom layer or not having to worry about potential "mud soup" and just going with root tabs/additives to enrich substrate, although I here Seachem's turns the light coloured (yes that's how we spell colored in Canada) sand black. Yikes. Guess you can't disturb the bottom there either! Lol. That is my biggest decision right now because it's difficult to change the substrate once it's in. As for fish I love the gourami species, dwarf cichlids, congo tetras, neon tetras and really love corys! I wish I could afford two tanks though because I also love alot of larger cichlids. That's alotta-love, I know .
