It’s been awhile

Recommended Posts

I’ve been doing a lot of lurking, but have been around for a few years watching all the video’s. 
Lost all my fish in 2019 after a long power outage during a cold snap. Broke my heart.

Then Covid ran through my family. Lost a job, but through it all the Aquarium Coop family kept me sane. Much love to all of you.

Finally setting a couple tanks back up for cool water fish. No more heaters for me. Will be placing plant orders soon so I can get two tanks to start seasoning for fish later.

I have had Oscars, goldfish, dozens and dozens of Bettas I bought straight from Indonesia, guppies, Convict Cichlids several Neocaridina shrimp and other scattered fish over the last 45 years. 
I believe I’m going to go mostly natives and get my cherry shrimp running again.

Thank you for the kind remarks.

Welcome back to fish, i get more and more paranoid about my tank heater. Sounds like a really nice set up that you have in mind though. Sorry about the issues painful route you had to take to get here. 

I had a big fish loss a few years ago and struggled to even look at the tank let alone talk about restocking until last year. This site has really helped move along through this.
