Whoa! You have some tanks! I would love to see pics! Especially of your goldies (my fave), mollies (up there on the list), and the SE Asian tank. I bet your house is GORGEOUS!

This is a freakin' awesome site with awesome people. You'll have a good time here.

It can happen. My poor babies (my Africans) all sit side by side staring out the tank at me because I pay attention to my sw more than them. I am working on this, because even my community seems to have noticed the lack of attention. So many fish, so little time...


Thank goodness for the webcam, unfortunately they don't know they are being watched while I am working. (Oops, even that has been tuned to the sw tank the past week or so.)

im looking into starting saltwater too. i LOVEmy a.cichlids, but i can see that happening to me too! there is so much more to learn about saltwater, fish, inverts, equipment, and whatnot. i just got a osaka 155 set (41gallon cube-ish open top tank with bent wraparound smooth 8mm glass with brushed aluminum trim and dark bamboo stand. fluval heater and 205 canister filter, 24" hagen glo fixture with dark bamboo, t5ho with 2 life glow bulbs. new for $250) that im gonna start my first fowler or mini reef in. of coarse i've been reading alot and asking people who have been doing it for awhile. lucky that my cichlid tank is next to my soon2b reef tank.my goldfish might feel left out the most.
