    Newbie from Indiana. (now with tank pix)


    I'm new to this forum and wanted to say hi from Indiana.

    I'm getting back into fish tanks and have questions after questions and question. So I though I better find a good forum to join.

    I've been keeping a tank now for about almost a year. Before that I had a 10g and a 20g when I was 10 until I was 15.

    Right now have 125g, 55g x 3 and a 40 in fresh water. I also have 5 betta tanks (1.5 x 3, 5 and a divided 10). Also have a 150 g saltwater coral/fish tank.

    My fresh water fish right now are goldfish, bettas, severums, blood parrots, plecos, corys, green puffers, black tetras, giant danios, clown loach,

    My saltwater fish are damels, tangs, blennies, foxface, clownfish-including a mating pair.

    So far I've been very luck with my tanks. I lost very few fish and right now everything I have is very health!

    Interested to hear from you guys/gals esspecially my hoosier neighbors.

    Hello fellow Hoosier. What part of the state are you from? I live close to Muncie. I currently have a 75g community tank that I set up last fall for my grandparents, and I have 120G tank at my house I just got set up and started stocking.

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes. I think this forum is going to be a big help to me and my fish.

    I'm in Brownstown Ind, for those who ask.

    Here are some pictures. Sorry for the poor quality.

    My sw tank. It's really bigger than it looks in the pictures. So far I have yet to loose one fish or coral. I'm very new to sw, but so far I'm loving it.




    Here's my 125g. It's a mess. I plan to have all live plants someday. Right now only the right half is all live plants. When I get done with this tank, it's going to have large drift wood pieces, caves, multilevels, or at least I hope it will.


    My other tanks.


    The one on top is going to be sw soon.
    The one on bottom is one of my goldfish tank. I forgot to get a picture of the other one. But it's just a 55g with a couple flower pots and a few comets in it. All my tanks are works in progress right now. lol


    My Bettas tanks. I have a soft spot for bettas and gold fish alike. The first pictures show a 5g tank with bad algae, but it wont clean off and I don't want to take a razor to it because it's plexi.
    I have a soft spot for bettas and gold fish alike.



    Right now my sw is taking almost all of my time, so you may some stuff laying around the tanks. I'm in the process of trying to get my sw where it needs to be and converting one of the tanks into sw.
    I just wanted to get some quick pictures you for everyone, so sorry for the bad pictures.
