Actually I joined here some time ago but never had much time to post because I was a Moderator on another forum that took all my time. 6 years + 2 months of my time to be exact. The bot spammers finally drove me out and we all need to make changes now in then to keep life interesting. This is a nice forum, well maintained and clean. Apparently you have some Mods that are on top of things and that's nice to see. I moved to MI from FL in 2003 and started out like many of you. Got a tank that was too small, knew nothing about fish or cycling but had about one week to learn it all before I killed everything so hit the net and read until I was blue in the face. Within the first month of keeping fish, I had bought 3 more tanks and learned about cycling. I can't imagine being without a tank now but I'm restricted on tank size due to living in an apartment so 55's are the largest I've had.....3 of them, plus a 29 now going. A 10 gallon with some shrimp in it and a 5 gallon shoved under my bed.
