Talking Hi :D New to site

Just registered and wanted to say hi.

I have 2 tanks atm.

The first is a 26 gallon with Emporer 280. It is planted and has danios, corys, cherry barbs, and nerite snails.

The second is a 10 gallon with a terrible filter that I am researching to replace, 4 ADFs, 3 kuhli loaches, 2 corys, and a betta.

I have had aquariums on and off over the years, if you add it all up...probably about 18 years.

I will be posting (in the appropriate forum) about HOB filters to replace the one on my 10 gallon tank.

Nice to find yal!

Valina

I love the 26! It's actually about 27/28 gallons :P! The driftwood is very nice. Did you order it online? If so I would love to find out where.

Actually I got it at a LFS - Animal Jungle in Virginia Beach. The place is HUGE - they bought a grocery store that went out of business.

They have everything and anything you could want for animals - they just don't carry puppies/dogs. Which is a good thing...imo

Thanks very much for the compliment!

Thanks Andrew!!

The 26 has been set up for about a year or so. The 10 is new and still a work in progress...

But it never fails, as soon as I finish the 10, I will probably get bored and set up another tank...or redo an existing! Half the fun is setting the aquarium up!
