Howdy folks! New member here, but I've been lurking for a few weeks and really enjoy the content. I have read the forum rules and they seem pretty straightforward, so no worries there. A little about myself... I used to be really into aquariums when I was a kid. Growing up, we had saltwater tanks, Tiger Oscars, various cichlid tanks and temporarily, an octopus. I was about 18 y.o. when I had my last tank of cichlids that I unfortunately had to sell because we were moving long distance. Fast forward 24 years and I’m finally getting back into a hobby that I’ve always found extremely captivating, but due to growing up, moving around a lot for work and life in general, let fall by the wayside. I got my fix whenever I went snorkeling in the summer and really enjoy viewing the underwater world.

I’m currently working on setting up a small Lake Tanganyika biotope in an Aqueon 40 gal breeder that I picked up at Petco yesterday, for $49.99 (50% off). So far, I have the tank, 40# white sand substrate and 5# of black sand substrate for a bit of contrast, but I’m still in the very early stages of the build. I plan on making a thread on the progress of my build, once I nail down filtration, lighting, equipment etc. Thanks for taking the time to read!

I meant to type Petco, but put Petsmart by accident, lol. I have noticed that they are hard to find, unless you want to pay for a really nice one. Petco also has a metal frame stand made by Imagitarium that is currently on sale at Petco for $79.99. I might pick one up.
