Hello from Colorado

Hello! I am new to this site, but not the hobby itself. I used to have a 55 gallon piranha tank in Pennsylvania, and when I lived in New Jersey, I owned a 15 gallon tank with neon tetras. Recently I moved out to Colorado, and am looking to get a new tank, possibly a 37 gallon, because that is all I have room for. I gave myself this username because it is the name of the Irish pagan god of the ocean. (Poseidon and Neptune were already taken.) Hopefully, you guys can give me some good advice.

cool

a couple tips, the Petsmart on North Academy near Gart Sports has an excellent fish stock - one of the best ive seen in chain stores. The Petco on Vickers and Academy should be avoided. And SeaScape Aquatics on Union and Academy is a really good small store with really nice people - they can special order all kinds of things for you and carry a lot of speicalty products that the big stores dont.

Thank you for the tips. Yeah, I've been to the Petco at Vickers, and it looks a little shady. I was also thinking of joining the SCAS (Southern Colorado Aquarium Society). Do you know anything about it? Is it any good? Another thing: a guy at a local fish store told me not to buy a tank from a Petsmart because their tanks aren't the best...he said that they bought out an aquarium manufacturing company and now mass produce fish tanks, but they only last a few years before they start leaking. Do you know if this is true?
