Smile new member saying hi

Hi to everyone in this community. I would like to open this intro by saying that this is the best forum that I have been to so far. The members in this community are very informative and supportive . That said, my setup is: a 75 gallon tank with African Malawi cichlids (Mbunas and Peacocks) in it; a 40 gallon community tank (my son's) with an albino catfish, black ghost, elephant-nose, iridescent shark, long-finned albino pleco, two bamboo fan shrimps, and a tinfoil barb; and a 5 gallon tank with a betta (my daughter's) in it. I also have a 10 gallon tank which I use as a quarantine/hospital tank. It now has a zebra cichlid with bloat which I am trying to cure.

@Dary421 - I agree 100% with you. Everybody's so helpful and friendly here.
@ChizerBunoi - the kids love watching the fish. I still do the maintenance though, haha.

Welcome to the forum! I did a lot of forum-searching before I finally landed and stuck with this one. Everyone here is very helpful and friendly. What I've noticed more though is that the experts are honest. If you are doing something wrong they will tell you flat out, no sugar-coating, which is the main reason I love this site. When someone tells me "you could get away with it and it may not hurt the fish" I think I'm good keeping things the same. Not here. They will tell you what you're doing wrong and how to fix it. The guys and girls here are great!
