Hey everyone!

I was selling some tanks this past week and one of my buyers told me about this society and im glad i found it!

I have been in the hobby for about 3 years or so, all freshwater and all planted tanks. I am one of the "small fish big tanks" fans, although i've never had anything bigger than a 30 gallon. Due to my own oversight and stupidity(?), i lost all of my fish in my two tanks (30 and 20 gallon) this January when i turned off the heat in my apartment for a week when i was away. without a heater in my tanks, it got pretty darn cold and i lost some tetras, julii cories, and a breeding pair of bristlenose plecos with about 40 half inch fry... =( with my wife soon to give birth to our first son, and a potential move to harrisonburg in a year or two, I'm just going down to a tiny 3 gallon acrylic tank for now. i plan to stock it with pygmy cories and cherry shrimp and try some micro swords and maybe some baby tears...

I look forward to getting to know some of you more and maybe i'll make it out to a meeting or two!

Welcome to the forum DrDave. Sorry to hear about your recent loss. Sounds like a fun project in the 3g and so you know we all love pictures. Laughing

We have a meeting coming up on April 15th if you want to check it out.
