introduction

Hi,

I am familiar with the hobby. I have been in Germany for the past 19 years and just now returned to the USA. I have had 2 very nice aquariums in Germany and am now getting started on one here. I have a 55 gal. tank with 2 30/60 waterfall filters. Now, the hobby is quite different here then what I am used too. There is a greater variety in Europe than where I am living now. I have many questions about what type of filter to use and what type of sediment. I hope all my fears will be tamed here in this wonderful forum

Thanks
Goldmanjace

First of all thanks for all the warm welcomes!!

I am happy to be back home!! I lived in Ulm, that is between Munich and Stuttgart. Ulm is the home of the highest church tower in the world.

Thanks

My dad was in the Army so I lived in Berlin (twice), Baumholder (twice), Garmisch and Kitzingen. I love it over there.
