Yet another new member :)

Hello, I'm very happy to be joining this forum - seems to have a lot of active members with very practical advice.
We currently have two 20 gallon tanks - one with goldfish, and one with barbs - both seem to be doing well.
What led me to find this group is a recent gift of a large aquarium and stand - the tank is 36Lx16Dx20T. I have already posted elsewhere, looking for advice for what in the world should I use for a hood/canopy, but if anyone sees this and has advice, please feel free to share it. I plan on trying cichlids with this tank, and will be reading the cichlid forum avidly.
As well as fish, I maintain a husband, son, 3 dogs, 1 corn snake and a garden. The house gets very little maintenance

Pleased to meet you all -
Susan

Welcome!
Sounds like you a 40g breeder tank. For a lid I would just go to petco in person or online and get one. They sell the all glass version not sure about others.
