Welcome.

So, what are your plans and what did Ian tell you to do. We'll evaluate.

first time on forum

Hello everyone
Well I guest I'll start off how I got here. About 20 years ago I was installing cable TV in someones house he had about 3-4 fish tanks. I went home with a 10 gallon tank with all I needed (tank, light,gravel, undergravel filter, protein skimmer for a 55 gallon tank and corals). That was the best tip I ever received but also the most expensive one (I'm still paying for it today) . Easiest tank I ever had. Everyone said I was crazy bacause I had 12 fish in it. Then I got a 65 gallon tank. Then a 125 gallon tank. Traded 125 for a 300 gallon. Told you I'm still paying for that tip. Went through a divorce 4 year ago lost everything except the tank and no fish. I finally set it back up and it just finish cycling yesterday. Now I'm ready to start adding fish. If anyone finds a pennatus batfish that is eating please let me know. I'll post a picture of what my tank used to look like. You'll see the bat fish there.
