hi ....

hi everyone, i am new to this site and was looking for a place to communicate to other people who had a passion for fish keeping.... i dont know all how the site works yet but so far it seems very well set up. i was into aquariums many years ago but left the hobby for some time .. i am getting back into it again and i am looking to purchase a 6' aquarium to place in the basement.. my preference is large fish mostly ,or cichlids. with a 6' aquarium i found out that i have to make my own stand so i am making my own plans and looking at what types of finishes would nice.. also with a large aquarium i am looking at the different types of filters on the market . i am thinking about the fluval fx5 mostly because we are limited on pet supplies where i live..... if anyone would like to give some advice on such a setup i would appreciate it alot ... thanks :p:p:p
