Smile New here...introduction

Glad to have found this group, and hope that I can become a contributing member as well.

I'm a freshwater enthusiast. Currently have 5 tanks:

55 gal - Jack Dempsey & Pleco
46 bow - danios, gouramis, cories, tiger barbs, rainbow shark
45 corner - angel fish, tetras, rainbow shark, pleco
65 gal - goldfish
20L - convict cichlids

Started my fascination with fishkeeping with goldfish - didn't we all??? Now, my interest borders on obsession!

That's a little about me, and again, happy to be a part of this group!

Thanks for all the welcome messages! I love the look of saltwater tanks, just can't shell out the $$ for it now! Plus, I've heard it's not nearly as "forgiving" as freshwater...

SW can be very forgiving given a large water volume.....
